1/3/17... Although I've maintained at 228 pounds for the last 2 years, I'm ready to try to be more proactive on a road to healthy living again. At almost 70, I'm still working. When my husband died in 2015, it helped keep me sane. Life goes on and I'm trying to live life to the fullest.


2013
I am 5'3" with a starting weight of 232 pounds. I had lost 60 pounds from an all time high of 253 pounds, but due to work related stress have put 40 pounds back on. My oldest daughter has maintained a 60 pound loss for over 10 years and one pregnancy. Through sensible eating and exercise including several 1/2 and full marathons, my daughter and son in law maintain a healthy lifestyle and fitness level. With my old knees, walks will be more my style .

Fitness Minutes: 1,423

My Goals:
My goal is to lose weight in a healthy sustainable manner, not by "dieting". I did it once, but then let the stress of work overwhelm my resolve. (Those 12 hour days sitting in front of the computer didn't help).


My Program:
I have started tracking calories, and am trying to walk a mile a day. As my family has a history hip and knee problems, I am deterimined to break the cycle.



Personal Information:
I was an Operating Room nurse for 32 years in the Chicago area, but switched to information systems in the OR about 12 years ago. I have two beautiful supportive daughters and a wonderful husband. He however does not feel I need to lose weight and am "fine" just like I am.


Other Information:
I love to read, garden, garage sale, and be with family. I'm hoping to retire in 2 1/2 years when I'm 65 (if the economy permits)
