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)

Here are some special emoticon to get you through the day. Always remember you are not alone. This journey is long and slow, if we are going to do it successfully and healthy! It is a lifestyle change and not a diet. And it's OK to lose the UMPH to get MOVIN' again and be on the right track.

But, WE ARE SO WORTH IT, so continue the struggle. And, know with confidence that with each step you take---you are moving closer to your
ultimate goal!!! Keep challenging yourself! emoticon
