One of the best days of my life!
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
RHOOK20047 is a SparkPeople Motivator!
I am a 63 year old man who has abused the body I have been given and am having many health issues. I am determined once and for all to lose this weight I have gained and ignored for so long. I am married with two grown sons, and the prospect of becoming a grandfather in the future scares me as my mobility is getting worse. On my 61st birthday I joined the century club by losing 100 lbs. Although I have another 100-150 lbs to lose, I am ready to meet the challenge.
Since losing 100 lbs. my new goal is to lose 10% of my body weight, 28 lbs., by December.
Journally everything I eat, and pushing myself to do a little more each day.
Anything else you would like to tell people. Could include things like your favorite books or movies, a quote, anything.
5% Challenge Commitment - Plan
So with 60 minutes daily exercise (from fitness plan), and eating between 1,200 - 1,500 calories a day, I will lose 16.0 pounds in 8 weeks.

stopping by to remind you that when we commit to losing weight, we need to create small realistic goals that are attainable. Small goals could be anything like getting in your daily serving of fruit and vegetables.
Remember when it comes to vegetables, we are just talking your typical tomato, carrot and celery to eat or snack on. When it comes to vegetables then are many to chose from like kale, collard greens, mustard greens and other dark leafy greens. The darker green the leaf the more fiber the vegetable has and the better it is for your digestion.
We also have purple, yellow and orange carrots, purple potatoes, red, green and yellow onions. Then there is whole multitude of other vegetables like summer, butter, winter, pumpkin squashes, radishes can be white or pink, even red. Then look at those beautiful black egg plants they to can come in different colors. The point is don't be afraid to experiment with different types of foods. And let's not forget our fruits, they can be sweet or sour, you can use them for desserts, smoothies, juices, snacks and so much more if you are a creative cook.
If you don't like water, this too can be another small goal, try making a goal to drink at least 5 glasses of water 5 days a week.
And most importantly when you reach your small goal, don't forget to reward yourself with a non-food reward for achieving that goal.
Then it is time to move the goal up a little. Like the water from 5 glasses to 6 per day.
And also you will want to "Fire up your sneakers to get at least 10+minutes of exercise at least 3-5 times a week." I know you can...You are ready to take that first step and commit yourself to a "HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE".... "A HEALTHIER NEW YOU"....
