I am 55 years old; at my highest weight ever. I have spent so much of my time in the past decade ineffectually dieting, and losing 10 just to gain back that 10, and then those 10 would bring their friends......So I am now borderline diabetic, my knees are killing me, I get winded going up 2 flights of stairs, and I figure it is time to use all that information I have gained while NOT losing the weight and this time maybe actually lose it and keep it off.

I hope you like the recipe. I'm a big Eatingwell fan, so I check out their new recipes when they release a magazine (they're online) for new ideas. Otherwise, I also tend to rely on the same 10-12 dishes which is fine, but I can get tired of it. Skinnytaste is also a good blog to check out.

Thank you for your wonderful words of encouragement. It appears that I have someone out there who is in the same boat as I am in...and going the same journey. I have friended you on your page...and hope to hear from you and share journeys as we both travel along.

Hey there! Thanks for reading and commenting my blog. It is hard to see how the job market is changing. Full time jobs and benefits are very slim picking.

Thank you for the lovely compliments. I have two interviews on Thursday so hopefully I will be training in for a new job soon!

HUGS!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Yes I'm really hoping that dealing with the internal stuff will help me to create the life I want and to stop failing miserably, so I must stay the course!

Hope you have a great day!

Thank you for your kind comments!

Coach Nicole has a couple of nice strength videos. I used them when I was starting out with getting serious with my ST. JessicaSmithTV on YouTube has a couple of nice beginner videos. FitnessBlender is a bit more advanced, but the channels straight strength videos may be doable if you use weight that you are comfortable. They have some nice low impact videos now, too.

In addition to your weights, you may consider resistance bands. You can find nice basic sets at Wal-Mart or Target. They can grow with you as you get stronger because you can increase the resistance by shortening the length. Really, just do what you can. I could barely do a small set of knee push ups when I started, but I did what I could and stuck with it.

Bodybuilding.com is a good resource for finding exercises that work muscle groups - like quads, hamstrings, shoulders, glutes, triceps, biceps, chest, etc. Find one or two that you like for each group and you can make your own routine. The site is a little intimidating at first, but has some great info.
