I'm doing this for me!

When I reached 199 pounds in my early 40's I decided to lose fifty pounds by my 50th birthday, but more importantly lose jeans sizes.
I shrank from a size 14 / 16 jeans to a size 12. My new goal to lose another 2" each off my waist and hips.

Losing weight is difficult for me: I have hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia, and a surgically rebuilt ankle. So not only do I have a slow metabolism, but also painful muscles and joints, fatigue, and a disability. I work around all this ...

Losing weight is difficult for me: I have hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia, and a surgically rebuilt ankle. So not only do I have a slow metabolism, but also painful muscles and joints, fatigue, and a disability. I work around all this and exercise when I can, as much as I can tolerate, crossing the line often. I forgive myself when I need to take a break.

I HIGHLY recommend the Spark People chair cardio video (my poor abs) and the seated workouts! Even if you are fully mobile. I left a calorie counting paid site because the videos and articles at Spark People are worth their weight in gold (no pun intended)
