Journey to thin- the Poundage Plan

My weight has been a lifelong battle: Diet/lose/gain. Diet/lose/gain. At 55, it was high time I put that cycle behind me. My arthritis was so bad in my knees, I had a hard time going up and down stairs. This had to STOP!

My youngest birth kid, Meg, got a free month membership at the local "Y" and convinced me to join with her. OK, no dieting, but I could use the exercise for my poor knee.

My weight has been a lifelong battle: Diet/lose/gain. Diet/lose/gain. At 55, it was high time I put that cycle behind me. My arthritis was so bad in my knees, I had a hard time going up and down stairs. This had to STOP!

My youngest birth kid, Meg, got a free month membership at the local "Y" and convinced me to join with her. OK, no dieting, but I could use the exercise for my poor knee.

Imagine my surprise to find that I could play racquetball and with a little modification, take classes. I am using the cardio room every day and the weight room every other day.

The bonus? My diet evolved into a healthier diet! I no longer want junk. After only 1 week and a loss of about 5-6 pounds (not focusing on the scale!) my pain decreased.

After less than 10 months, I hit my 'goal' of being healthier, fitter and weighing 116# less than when I started. At just under 1 year, I hit my final adjusted goal with a weight loss of 135# on July 23,1957.

I now embark on a journey of a new me; a journey that I have never before taken. A journey of maintenance. I am confident that the same tools that I used to lose this weight will help me learn to maintain that weightloss.

Thank You so much for your comment on my blog! My DH used to ride his motorcycle over to Texas and wherever he pleased. Now he has slacked off. I loved the time alone so that I could "do what I do" without the dh! LOL Now that I am working on my goals, he has been so supportive. I'd still like him to go on vacation though! I need some good time alone! :) Thanks for sharing your story! Losing the weight sure makes the knees hurt less... well, mine do anyway! :)

Now how do *I* amaze YOU?? lol. You're the amazing one here, silly. It's rare that you can find someone so full of love and acceptance that you can feel it- all from a comp. screen!

Have a great day, Jaynee!

thanks for the support Jaynee. I did the blc a couple of rounds back and was on the fabulous feisty foxes and had a lot of fun. This time I think the team is a little more of a push and it is what I need. Really missed the fff team.
