Hi! I'm 49 years old and need to take better care of myself. I want to lose 15 lbs before my 50th birthday and I also want to make a consistent healthy lifestyle for myself. I'm starting to feel those aches and pains that you get when getting out of bed in the morning. Being out of breath just walking to the mail box and back, or washing my car are sure signs of being out of shape. I need to eat better, sleep more hours each night, and I definitely need to exercise. I'm always too tired by the time I get home from work to do anything but veg out. Even so... I've decided it's time to do something about it. So here I am!

Goal Weight:
by Dec 31, 2008 --- 135

Jul 24, 2008 ----- 148.0
Aug 4, 2008 ----- 144.5
Aug 11, 2008 ----- 144.5
Aug 17, 2008 ----- 144.5

I didn't meet my goal by Dec 31, 2008. My mother died of cancer in Oct 2008 and I lost my focus on diet and exercise. I will be 50 years old next month and I want to be on a clear path to health and a new exercise routine. I'd like to lose 5 lbs by my 50th birthday. Here is my new start:

Short term goal:
by Apr 20, 2009 ----- 145

Mar 10, 2009 ----- 150.0
Mar 16, 2009 ----- 148.0
Mar 23, 2009 ----- 147.5
Mar 30, 2009 ----- 146.5
Apr 6, 2009 ----- 147.5 (Gained a lb. Yikes!)
Apr 13, 2009 ----- 148.0 (Oh No! All that Easter food!)

1. I will lose 13 lbs by New Year's Eve 2008.

Personal Information:
I love tea. Black Tea, Green Tea, Orange Pekoe, Earl Gray, herbal teas... I love that tea is basically healthier than many other drink choices... provided nothing is added to it. Love that tea is basically calorie free and fat free, sugar free. Caffeine free varieties are good. Love it hot. Love it iced. Love tea cups!

    A big Congratulations are in order. Fifty and Nifty is what you'll be. Because you got you back. Celebrate with a big bang, but don't over do it, you definitely will deserve it. Not many people can boast about turning 50 or being fifty.

    God Bless you and yours.
