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.)

Congratulations on your persistence, which appears to be an essential component of this much success! I admire your ability to make movement an essential and desired part of your life. Thanks for being inspiring to a 58 year old who is working on cultivating persistence and the habit of exercise! Best wishes for further success!
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....

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?
