I did it! Down 20 pounds !!!

Hi my name is Robbie and I have been yoyoing for years. I am over 50, and determined that my age is not going to stand in the way of my being healthy. Like many of you I have tried and lost the weight only to gain it back. I had gotten so frustrated that I surpassed the highest I had ever been by 20 pounds.

Hi my name is Robbie and I have been yoyoing for years. I am over 50, and determined that my age is not going to stand in the way of my being healthy. Like many of you I have tried and lost the weight only to gain it back. I had gotten so frustrated that I surpassed the highest I had ever been by 20 pounds. So I was pretty depressed when one day I looked around at my patients (I am a nurse practitioner) and realized that I too could be spending the rest of my life in a wheelchair with an overwhelming list of chronic conditions.

I am still in the midst of trying to get to my goal weight. I have always had long plateaus that are so demoralizing, but this time I have found a way to work through them. I took a break from the scale, kept exercising and writing down my food and am paying attention to how my clothes fit and how I feel. I am 20 pounds from moving from to "obese" to "overweight" by medical standards, but feel stronger and healthier than I have in years.

My clothes are getting bigger, I do 40 minutes of aerobics every day, I am getting all my water, and most days am able to stay within my calorie range.

You have encouraged me to stop the insanity with yoyo dieting and get real with the right way to do it. Such an inspiration, can't thank you enough.

Thanks for your comments on my vblog Robbie. It's a pleasure and I'm so chuffed that you and your mates had a good old laugh. I'm a firm believer in 'Laughter makes the world go around.' Enjoy and keep smiling!
