Can I dream of how I will feel in a year if I continue on this healthy lifestyle of eating and exercise? If I were to continue to eat junk and lead a sedentary life, I know where I'll be in that same timespan. A year is going to come and go...where do I want to be in that year?

I am 46 and about 60 lbs. overweight. Cancer, heart disease and diabetes run in my family. Once upon a time (in my late 20s-early 30s), I did weight training and ate a low-fat diet. I was in the best shape and felt the best I ever had. I refuse to believe that it can't be done again.

I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!

Member Since: 6/2/2010

Fitness Minutes: 17,399

My Goals:
1) Maintain a weight of 125-130 lbs.

a: first major milestone will be to get to 158 which will take me out of "obese" and put me in "overweight".
YEAH! - done 10/7/10

b: second major milestone is to get to 132 which is the highest healthy BMI for my height. ***WooHoo - done 4/22/11

**Met goal of 127 lbs. on June 17*** Now the hard part - maintain.

2) Develop and maintain healthy eating habits

3) Do weight training at least 3x per week

4) Find some type of cardio I enjoy


My Program:
**January 2012**
Spark January Jumpstart Challange - finished and had fun doing it.

**Oct/Nov 2011***
New strength training rotation - 2 weeks Slow & Heavy followed by 2 weeks of STS Total Body followed by 2 weeks of Muscle Max (all with cardio mixed in). I saw some great strength gains and muscle definition with this program. Will do this again!

**June/July 2011**
Started a 7-week strength training rotation. 3 weeks of Muscle Max - 1 week of "rest" - 3 weeks of Slow & Heavy.

**4/3/11** Started a 3-week cycle (3 days per week) of Cathe Friedrich Slow & Heavy series in strength training. Adding in cardio and a rest day the other days. (I noticed a significant increase in strength after completing this 3-week rotation. Will definately add this in again).

2/3/11 Have been consistent with my exercise plan by using a variety of workout DVDs as well as weight training. My favorite DVDs are the Biggest Loser ones and Cathe Friedrich. **A

If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
