My name is Lisa Adams and I am 60yrs old. I have never done a page before even though in years past I have used the site. I must get down from 251lbs. I was 268 and now I'm 259. If I don't change directions I will be back up there. I have been big all my life but in most of my years I was shapely and active so always belived I could not possibly weigh what charts or Drs. would say. I got to 50 yrs old and got into real trouble going higher each yr. with menophause and giving up so much. I now know I can get the weight off, i just have to continue in the lifestyle and never give up! I haven't finished too many things in my life. I did quite smoking yrs ago and I thought it was the hardest thing I could ever do. Ha! I do want to finish this and change my life. I need buddies and I want to be one to someone else. Well I'm starting again after such along time of doing other diets or nothing. I got up to 272. I didn't stay there long but couldn't belive it. My husband and I are not good dieting partners,we love to take weekend drives and junk eat in the truck and snack at night together. It makes us feel better about doing it. I had to have knee replacement this Jan. and before that I decide that was it. So in Dec. of 2013 I started working at it and lost 30 lbs before the surgery. I sailed through the surgery and now I am back here even though I really dreaded the constant keeping track of everything but, I know that is what works for me and I need the partners and accountabilaty. So now I am 63yrs old but like I said "I can never give up" because I only have "One Life 2 Live".
Hi Lisa, How are things going? It's about the same around here but I do have some good news about my Mom. I talked to the Doctor and asked him to start her on Vitamin B12 He did about a week ago. Last Wed. her blood count was up a whole point, praying that it keeps going up. I feel a little relieved but not getting too excited for a while. It's still raining everyday here but mostly at night. I love to hear the rain at night, when it doesn't storm. We've had a lot of bad storm. I'm now trying the Hungry Girl recipes, but not really going with her 300 recipes for under 300 cal. plan. I think that you lose too fast on it. I talked it over with my Doctor 2 weeks ago and she wants me to try to stick with about 1600-1700 cal. and see if that does any good. She doesn't want me to lose too fast. She is surprised that my BP is good. Hope everything is going well with you and your family. I'll try to keep in touch at least once a month It's nice to have a Buddy around my age to talk to Hope to hear from you soon. Barb
I'm not ignoring you,I just have not been on. It is the gym here at the resort we stay at while in Fl. I know its crazy cause it is a spa also and people are members. Many have ask about it and it is a very nice gym but not real busy so I guess they can take their time. Well I did go buy one and did not like what I saw. I have not lost a lb. I really don't get it but I know its me not the scale. I have been doing water arobics the past week and got sore. I just have to be consistant and I am not. Not felt well lately but kept going. I had to go to ENT Dr. cause of big trouble with my ear. Found I had a hole in ear drum and infection so could not get it wet. I thought it was getting better then pain and ringing bad again. I go back Thurs. Its been real busy here. So I just have to keep on. I would love to meet sometime. That would be great! I have to order the first spark book and read it. I'm sure it will be a great help to me. Well keep on going and thanks for your response.
