Member Since: 6/30/2007

Fitness Minutes: 3,610

My Goals:
Start with 20 pounds.
Yahoo. reached my first goal.

5/28/11 I have reached 50 pounds. Wahooooo.

I have 22 pounds to go to reach my original goal. LOL, then I will re-adjust my new goal.

6/11/11 I have now lost 52 pounds. Yeah.

7/5/11 I have now lost 62 pounds. I joined the YMCA. I love going. Angel and I go every day.
I can feel the muscles in my trunk and legs the most.

7/13/11 Lost another 2 pounds. up to 64 lost now.


My Program:
right now I am just watching my diet.
making life style changes

I cook with grape seed oils. they are Cholesterol Free.

I don't allow myself to eat seconds. (lol, unless I am at an oriental restaurant)
I am cooking healthier, grilling, baking, No fried foods. I also love veggies. so that has been a blessing for me.



Personal Information:
Oh gosh, I am 60 years old. I have 2 grown children. 2 grand-kids, 3 step grand-kids. my step grand son made me a Great Grandma this year.

I have always had to watch my weight. I didn't really start putting on the serious weight gain until I reached 50.
I injured my knee, then realized how heavy I had become. I went home and cried. determined to do something about it.

I had surgery on my knee, that didn't work. I wound up with having to have a total knee replacement.
I went through that last November.

** I learned that for every 1 pound of weight you loose , you remove 4 pounds of pressure off of your knees. **

That was one of my inspirations to loose the weight. I was so tired of hurting. Of not being able to climb stairs without crying. Of not being able to do fun things with my kids and grand-kids.


Other Information:
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, The trick to getting out of the rut, is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of
our troubles is a steppingstone.. We can get out
of the deepest wells just by not stopping,
never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.
