100 Pounds Gone Forever!!!
(August 6, 2009 to August 6, 2010)
June 18, 2011 - 161 Pounds - 130 Pounds gone FOREVER!!!

Hi, my name is Faith and I am 60 years old. I live in Northeastern Illinois. I have been overweight for most of my adult life. In January 2008 my Cardiologist recommended me to lose weight and walk for 30 minutes a day. I lost 20 pounds during 2008 but proceeded to gain it back in 2009. I started on on my journey to ”A Healthier Lifestyle” on August 6th 2009 weighing 291 pounds.

I want to lose weight and become healthier. I started walking for only 5 minutes a day (August 2009). and currently walk for 35 to 75 minutes daily.

I have dieted many times throughout my 59 years of life. This time I am not on a diet....I have changed my eating and exercise plan for life. I have made a lifestyle change!

Good luck on reaching your health, fitness and weight loss goals in the year 2011 and beyond!!!

Have A GREAT Day!!!

Personal Information:
My name is Faith and I live in Northeastern Illinois USA. I am a Christian, wife, mother, stepmother, grandmother, secretary at local real estate office.

I have been struggling with my weight for as long as I can remember. I want to become healthy and lose weight. I control my cholesterol and blood pressure with medications and would love to eventually get off them. Diabetes run in my family and I do not want to add that to my medical problems. I'm including regular exercise into my daily plan by walking daily and using strength training DVD's 3 times a week.

I started this page and blog to monitor my daily progress.

Have a GREAT Day and Thanks for Stopping By! Faith
