Journey to thin- the Poundage Plan

My weight has been a lifelong battle: Diet/lose/gain. Diet/lose/gain. At 55, it was high time I put that cycle behind me. My arthritis was so bad in my knees, I had a hard time going up and down stairs. This had to STOP!

My youngest birth kid, Meg, got a free month membership at the local "Y" and convinced me to join with her. OK, no dieting, but I could use the exercise for my poor knee.

My weight has been a lifelong battle: Diet/lose/gain. Diet/lose/gain. At 55, it was high time I put that cycle behind me. My arthritis was so bad in my knees, I had a hard time going up and down stairs. This had to STOP!

My youngest birth kid, Meg, got a free month membership at the local "Y" and convinced me to join with her. OK, no dieting, but I could use the exercise for my poor knee.

Imagine my surprise to find that I could play racquetball and with a little modification, take classes. I am using the cardio room every day and the weight room every other day.

The bonus? My diet evolved into a healthier diet! I no longer want junk. After only 1 week and a loss of about 5-6 pounds (not focusing on the scale!) my pain decreased.

After less than 10 months, I hit my 'goal' of being healthier, fitter and weighing 116# less than when I started. At just under 1 year, I hit my final adjusted goal with a weight loss of 135# on July 23,1957.

I now embark on a journey of a new me; a journey that I have never before taken. A journey of maintenance. I am confident that the same tools that I used to lose this weight will help me learn to maintain that weightloss.
