I've gained and lost the same 10 - 15 lbs since I turned 50. It takes forever to lose and then comes back almost immediately!! It's very frustrating!!

Fitness Minutes: 55,734

My Goals:
I'd like to lose about 15 - 20 lbs and increase my fitness level. I have osteo arthritis in my knees and hips, but if I stay busy I don't hurt as much. I'd also like to gain muscle so I can eat more :-)

My Program:
I'm trying to increase my protein and lower carbs. That's very difficult for me since I love carbs!! I also do some kind of exercise every day, even if it is only to take my old toy poodle for a slow walk around the block.

Personal Information:
I'm a retired engineer, turned 58 in March 2009. Married, one married son, teenage grand daughter and grand son. Live in SE Michigan in the summer and So Cal in the winter. I have wonderful friends and a great life. I try to live in the present with no regrets or worries about the future (easier said than done in this economy!!). I come from a big family and parents are living and in reasonably good health, however my dad has dementia. It's sad to see what's happening to him.

Other Information:
I love to read and usually have a couple of books going at the same time. At least one classic or books on health & fitness, what I think of as books I should read and a good mystery or a good love story.

Imagine what would happen if there was an outbreak of kindness in the world, if everyone did one kind thing on a daily basis- - -

If in our daily life we can smile,
if we can be peaceful and happy,
not only we, but everyone will profit from it.
This is the most basic kind of peace work.
- Thich Nhat Hanh
May you enjoy a beautiful, peace-filled weekend!

It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts. - K.T. Jong

"The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had. "
