Great job! You are an inspiration to me! I am 11 years older than you, also trying to lower cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure to get off meds .. or at least reduce them. I love that you are obsessed with movement! I'll never be as active as you are, but I've become a lot more active than I used to be since joining SP. It really makes a wonderful difference! Keep up the great work and let us know what your doctor says. (Or maybe you already have. I need to check your SparkPage.) emoticon

Way to go! I hope that you are able to get off your meds and since many meds can cause wt. gain and fluid retention, you may see an even greater wt. loss soon!

WOW! Chills ran all over me when I read what you wrote! It encouraged me so much. I am 60 also, and I have started walking in the pool and focusing on my calorie intake 100%. I too want to get off my medicines when or at least half when I go to my Doctor the first of January. I want to lose at least 16 pounds by Jan 01....then another 50 by my birthday in June~ So"CONGRATULATIONS", I am very very happy for YOU! It does make you feel better and not counting You get such better health (no prescriptions!!) Keep up the good work.... emoticon

Lost 4 more pounds this week. Didn't starve myself to do this, I actually ate pretty good. What I did do is keep moving. I have become obsessed with movement. I walk every chance I get. When at work I walk on my breaks. When it rains I walk inside or hop on an exercise bike. When watching tv, eating, searching the web, or reading the paper I ride my exercise bike. Sometimes I multitask and do all 4 at the same time. I hit the gym 3 times a week to run through the circuit. I then go back and concentrate on one area i.e. chest. Next time I focus on another area. It's working for me and I feel great.
I began my journey to a healthier life at 250 pounds. I now weigh 179.9 pounds. I feel great and am happy with the way I look. My plan is to take it to 150 or 160 pounds then maintain. I will continue to exercise and will focus more on fine tuning what I eat so I get all the nutrients I need.
This week I plan on making an appointment with my doctor to see about stopping some of my meds. Who knows by next summer I might be med free. Pretty good for 60 years "young" huh?
