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.

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.

My plan went emoticon Was it perfect? No, but because I'd eaten before I really wasn't hungry. Later in the evening had apple, two Brazil nuts & a medium chocolate covered strawberry & since I'd forgotten to take my yogurt that was originally part of my plan, I stayed within all my ranges with room to spare, so I COULDN'T be happier!!! emoticon

Thanks for stopping by my page to read my blog and for your comments. I thought of you when the doctor told me a regular beef hamburger patty is "much better" than a veggie-burger. I remember you commenting one time about a steak being your number one choice when eating out. I think the thing she said that surprised me the most though was her definition of processed food - I never would have included whole grain bread in that category. Today is day 1 of change (again). I've had a lot of "day 1's" but hopefully this will be the start of a more successful journey.

Thanks for the pedicure. I did get out walking last night so my streak is alive.
