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.

I would be so lucky to have your grand kidlets at my school. I'd smother them with love. lol.

On a different note, a co-worker gave me a bag of pretzels (not chex mix emoticon ) bit they were seasoned with garlic, ranch dressing powder and dill weed. O...M...G! Totally addictive! I MUST pinterest and find a recipe!

Hope you're doing well and feeling happy!

I read your post that your mother is 103 and loved it. If my mother had lived, she would be 106, so I know just how far back your mother goes. My mother smoked and had a heart attack at 58 & died. It was New Year's Eve of all times, and the doctor was at a party and he told her to go to bed & he'd see her in the morning.
I read that the internet can be a great help to Senior people to not have loneliness and to keep their mind busy, so I'm sure it will help all of us. I love to listen to the oldie music on YouTube and watch clips from American Bandstand. That was a fun show. emoticon
