Here is my page

I have reached 61 and trying to retire! I'm working part time to train my replacement. Still fairly fit, but starting to have some pain from things wearing out. I reached my lifetime goal of 125 pounds and now I am working on staying there. Maintenance is just about the same as losing, with maybe one treat day per week.

In 2015 I competed in the Bataan Death March, White Sands NM, on March 22. I was in the 60-69 civilian women heavy category, which involves carrying 40 pounds ...

In 2015 I competed in the Bataan Death March, White Sands NM, on March 22. I was in the 60-69 civilian women heavy category, which involves carrying 40 pounds over a 26.2 mile course. I was second in my age category, and 17th overall for civilian women.

Damaged knee cartilage precludes many exercises like heavy squats and leg extensions, but I do as much resistance exercise as I can. I hike one day every weekend but during the week I have my office slave job with daily bad food temptations (hope to retire this year). Hunger plagues me at work. At home I live on 30 acres with sheep, 2 Border Collies , 7 cats, one husband. My son is 21, in the Army and stationed right now in Korea.

Moondustie,

I hiked in Switzerland when I was in my late 20's Hut to Hut & it was absolutely fabulous! I agree entirely.. Iceland & Greenland!! Have you ever seen anything by Responsible Travel?

thanks for the goodie! Still have a ways to go! Really did have that awful flu (but had the flu shot!) It took 2 courses of antibiotics and 3 weeks to feel better; though my energy is not back yet....
Only have walked twice this week after 2 wks of nothing!
Really sapped the energy!
Slowly coming back....thanks for the boost! emoticon

Thanks moon for the car comment.....
I LOVE my MG; it was the car I wanted in college, but it was deemed 'not safe' by dad (no roll bar) so I had a stupid Pontiac! ugh!
Was always on the road (99) so that was the point! This one only had two previous owners and was original to the valley (visalia) so no rust and well cared for! I feel lucky to have found it! (with a roll bar too!!) I drive it often, though I have a bigger vehicle for the freeways! It can be very scary looking at big rig wheels on the freeway right at eye level!
There are so many MG lovers out there....everyone has a story, and I get approached all the time when I am out and about with it!
I say, get another one and relive those days! Put on your 70's playlist and rock on!! Keep 'em running!! emoticon
Plus yay! we got some rain finally!

Hi CGEM! To get a 400 calorie deficit, I am tracking every bite that goes in my mouth. I use an app on my phone/computer called MyNetDiary. I think it is faster and simpler to use than the Spark food tracker or any other one I've tried. I try to weigh food rather than estimate. I have a scale at home and one at work.

To get my burn, I rely on my Bodymedia armband. But I also know from my historical data that my average burn is a little over 2200 per day for office days.

So I am aiming to eat 1800 calories per day. Some days I burn more and I feel hungrier, so some days I might eat a little more.

What program are you using?
