Back and trying again.

I have been gone for many months now. Doing badly and gaining way too much weight. Several emotional upheavals, physical pain and just general feeling Blah!
I am back to try again.
I am someone who hides out when things are not going well so I am trying to snap out of it!!!!

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
I am 5ft 7 tall and would like to weigh 175. At this weight I will feel a lot better and hopefully live a more active and healthy life.

My Program:
I have a lot of joint pain (hips and knees) so I don't get a lot of aerobic exercise, but I do get in some walking every day. As for my diet, I learned a long time ago that my own version of Weight Watchers is what works for me. I don't go to meetings, but I go by the points plan from about 10 years ago. When I stick to it consistently it works. I love this plan because nothing is off limits. I can eat anything I want.

Personal Information:
I just turned 60 and I live in a very small town in Northern California. I have been overweight most of my life and am now feeling the stress of all this weight on my joints. I refuse to be a crippled old lady and want to communicate with others with like goals.

Other Information:
I love rock and roll, crafts and sewing, travel and love, love love nature! I live very near to the most beautiful redwoods and beaches in the world and want to be healthy enough to continue to enjoy these places.

I think it might be a Weight Watchers thing. At least that is where I got it. It's basically 1 can of black beans drained, rinsed and mashed very well combined with a brownie mix. I get the dark chocolate kind (lower in fat). You use the beans instead of the oil and eggs. You may need to add a little water if too dry.
You will be shocked how good they are. I gave them to my husband without telling him what was in them and he loves them now.
