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.

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.

Ay ay ay, after answering your SPmail, I idly clicked on to you page and -- oh, my -- your pic with the hat can't be of the same woman in the photos at the top of your page. You are amazing. Let me repeat: You are amazing. You've given yourself such a brilliant gift.

Thanks for stopping by my page to read my Cautious Optimism blog. I had a pretty busy weekend and didn't get the chance to reply until this morning. I'm also optimistic about our new doctor, things are looking up! emoticon

Not sure I have the right team leader for this question, but on the Determined Daisies team I don't see a thread for posting our exercise and LTGL challenge? Am I missing it and just don't know where to look? It's been a while since I've been in one of these challenges. Thanks! Looking forward to making good progress!! Jeannie
