I lost weight 3 years ago the old fashioned way, counting calories on Sparkpeople. I craved the entire time, then gained it back and then some. May 2, 2015 I started Trim Healthy Mama. As of today, May 15, I've lost a few pounds. More importantly, I've lost my cravings - even when I taste carb & fat ridden foods.
Update on May 8, 2016 - I lost 18 pounds while following THM principles over several months, fell off the bandwagon, but only gained 3 pounds back. Not bad. I'm back on the THM plan and plan to keep going.

Other goals I want to do at a lower weight:
Hike the Blue Beaver Trail up Lookout Mountain.
Spend a night at the Hike-Inn.
Swim with the manatees in FL.

My Goals:
I am not going to try to attain a weight within a healthy range as defined by all of the charts. I'm striving for a weight I attained 12 years ago which was about 10 pounds over the Weight Watchers goal. That's what I think is realistic for me.

My Program:
Trim Healthy Mama.
But perfection is not the goal.
I'm tracking my food on Sparkpeople.

30 min. of cardio 5X/week

Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

    Hi there, I hope you do not weight for a few days..give your body time to adjust, perhaps wait for a week. The book "Friend with the Scale" suggests waiting. Just a suggestion...

    TROUT, you ask and stated on 5/14/16 this:
    How much is everyone exercising? I'm walking 30 to 40 minutes a day. I intend to do yoga stretching, but mostly I forget to do it.

    THM Deb, THM Carol, YJNANA , me and others are doing a 5K on the 28th & or 29th of May. We all have Fitbits and or use Runkeeper App. Do you have a Fitbit?

    We also have a place to post on the "WOMEN BOOMERS (1946 to 1964) all ages are Welcome" (a team I started). We are posting in
