First, the easy stuff. My favorite things include knitting, sitting by the stove on a cold wintry day, and reading. I am a couch potato, although I'll take my bentwood rocker over a couch any day.

I joined SparkPeople with the idea that I could get down to a nice slender weight. My BMI is okay, but it could be lower and still be in the normal category. And with a potentially arthritic hip, less weight is a good thing. I love the idea of C25K, but my hips won't tolerate a ...
First, the easy stuff. My favorite things include knitting, sitting by the stove on a cold wintry day, and reading. I am a couch potato, although I'll take my bentwood rocker over a couch any day.

I joined SparkPeople with the idea that I could get down to a nice slender weight. My BMI is okay, but it could be lower and still be in the normal category. And with a potentially arthritic hip, less weight is a good thing. I love the idea of C25K, but my hips won't tolerate a gentle jog across the yard, so I'm not about to embark on a schedule of torture. I may flirt with the idea every once in a while and jog for 30 seconds or so, but I am still limping away from those flirtations.

I love timelines, so here's a shot at one:
March 1, 2010 - 148.6 (gotta love that digital scale)
April 13, 2010 - joined SP at 141
June 2, 2010 - 135 lbs
July 26, 2010 - 129.8 lbs

And now, maintenance. I wouldn't mind losing some more, but between 125-130 seems to be a decent weight for me. A BMI under 20 sounds like a nice idea ... but there is such a thing as too thin, and I think 120 lbs would be it for me.
....
February 2011 - 136 lbs
April 20, 2011 - 130 lbs
July 6, 2011 - 137 lbs
(ick, ick, ick)

My Goals:
Maintenance! Or rather, decreasing back to my maintenance weight.


My Program:
Eat healthy. I think I eat fairly close to what people are calling 'eating clean'. I want to keep up with eating fruits and veggies, and not worry so much about the calories from yummy homemade bread from freshly ground flour, too.

Strength training (wimpy, because I am a couch potato) 3x/wk. (doing horribly on this.)

Walking when the weather and bugs permit - a mile or two at a time.

Thanks for dropping by my "Ankle Surgery Update" blog. I have a "Bone Healer" herbal tea that I am drinking. The tea may, or may not, do any good. However, the tea is really tasty.

Thanks, Bruce

Thanks for the low-carb goodie! Haha, I get that SparkPeople might not consider bacon an appropriately healthy goodie. ;-/
(Why I'm doing my logging on a low-carb site these days.) I've gotten back to where I was at my lowest, before I fell off the wagon, so it's all "new" weight loss from here. I know what you mean about nutrition - so many conflicting "facts" and theories. But I have discovered for sure that my particular body does not process carbs well, and is much happier and healthier on a low-carb ketogenic diet. Great that you're feeling healthy and satisfied where you are, and keeping up your biking.
Happy to have reconnected!

You are, of course, right... but in those early morning hours of Sundays when I am so very hopeful it doesn't feel it. Thanks for the reminder.
