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.

Pollyanna!!??

Girl, if I told you what I did yesterday during my husband's lunch break you would blush. emoticon

But yes, positivity is the way to go. And you're part of my positivity (as was yesterday's lunch break emoticon ).

You've been an integral part of my existence here in the Spark world, and this Thanksgiving, I thank you for that. You're a gem, Jaynee. Don't ever forget that.

Love you! Have a great Thanksgiving!!!
