Healthier Boomer Lady in Progress

I lost 60 pounds down from a high of 238 in 1998 to 178 in 2001, and kept it off for more than 5 years. About 2006 I went on an experimental study drug at the same time as I injured my knee. The drug caused weight gain and the knee problem prevented adequate increased physical activity. Result: I put on 25 pounds over 18 months. Off the study drug, I have finally ditched those extra pounds and plan to keep on to ultimately lose a total of 100 pounds. Have set my ticker to reflect the 100 lb ...

My Goals:
Although my cholesterol runs in the "normal" range, I'm working to decrease the LDL fat in my diet while increasing the protein. I'm doing better at it. I'm also getting back into exercising more. I used to park in the farthest corner of the parking lot and walk 2 miles a day to my office and then back again, and I also climbed several flights of steps on the way. Lately I've been walking less, but have been swimming more.

My Program:
Working to eat only enough calories to support increased physical activity while losing weight slowly. I have a comfort-style bike I'm planning to ride more this year. My Medicare gets me a "preventive" Silver Sneakers membership, which I am using at the Y that is just around the corner from my home. I'm participating in the (mostly) chair exercise classes every Tuesday: it's fun!

Personal Information:
Raised in NW Ohio, I've lived in 6 states including OH, IN, TN, MI, MS, and NY (Long Island), twice in OH and MI. Happily single again for 30+ yrs, I have 3 successful daughters and 6 wonderful grandchildren! With perseverance, I completed a BS in Biology.

Other Information:
Interested in politics, I am doing lots of volunteer work aimed at helping bring back my inner-city neighborhood.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!!
Take the time to thank the Veterans in your life,
remember those that gave all to keep us safe and free.

I will ALWAYS support our troops and all they do to make
the best of the situations our politicians can't keep their
noses out of!!
