My Goals:
I started at 201 and intend to end up at 146 pounds, bringing my BMI back into the normal range. I used to be obese, with a BMI of 33.5.

My Program:
I try to stay with my recommended calorie range, without actually going on a diet. I love veggies and fruit, seafood and lean poultry, I just have to cut down on the extra fat and sweets I occasionally crave for. I bought a fitbit in July 2013 and walking 10,000+ steps a day has greatly improved my health and well-being.

Personal Information:
Bine, from Cologne, Germany. I work as a graphic designer, and I am in training to become a counselor and therapist. I'm 46 and happily bundled up with a wonderful man. I love to read, to knit, to crochet, to walk and to swim.

So great to see you still on here, too! And it looks like you are doing a great job of taking and KEEPING off the weight. Very nice.

You asked about the repercussions of my paralyzed diaphragm. Basically, I become winded with any exertion, and I can't breathe when lying down. I have to sleep with a bi-pap machine (like a c-pap, but it breathes OUT for me, as well). It's pretty life-altering. At least they told him ahead of time that it is a risk. I just woke up gasping for air... Ugh!

It's very hard to get in shape when I get winded just walking, but I am giving it a go! Looking forward to reconnecting with you.

Hi - I just friended you and am going to ask for your support. I just saw your comment on PUPPYWHISPERS page about walking 2015 miles in 2015 and that's my goal also. I would love to support you reach your goal and have someone help me be accountable also!
