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.

Great job n well done. I will like to hear some of those great tips that helped u in those ten months to get where u are now. I struggle to lose a pound. I chart everything I eat. Never go over my calories but one time. Been at it for two weeks, still going strong but not seeing the numbers drop on the scale but I can tell in the fitting of some of my clothing. I feel great some times a little week but hey that's ok to. I will keep pushing because it's better to do something than nothing. I don't want to give up. I want to keep pushing for the better. So feel free to give some input.

Thanks for your comment on my page. I have lived in many places (my dad was in the Coast Guard when I was young, and my hubby and I moved a bit after we got married), but I spent junior high through college in Seattle area and still think of that area as "home". We have been in Indiana for more than 10 years now. I love the lakes, but miss the mountains. We have lived on both coasts and now in the middle--every area has its own beauty.

Thank you so much for the comments on my blog! I'm pretty new at this, so I didn't even know you COULD respond. lol.

You're awesome! But umm...something is wrong with your page. On it, it says you started this at 55 and you just had a birthday. Judging by your pics you're much younger than that! *shakes her head* Silly sparkpeople.
