Almost retired RN

I am 5'3" with a starting weight of 232 pounds. I had lost 60 pounds from an all time high of 253 pounds, but due to work related stress have put 40 pounds back on. My oldest daughter has maintained a 60 pound loss for over 10 years and one pregnancy. Through sensible eating and exercise including several 1/2 and full marathons, my daughter and son in law maintain a healthy lifestyle and fitness level. With my old knees, walks will be more my style .

My Goals:
My goal is to lose weight in a healthy sustainable manner, not by "dieting". I did it once, but then let the stress of work overwhelm my resolve. (Those 12 hour days sitting in front of the computer didn't help).

My Program:
I have started tracking calories, and am trying to walk a mile a day. As my family has a history hip and knee problems, I am deterimined to break the cycle.

Personal Information:
I was an Operating Room nurse for 32 years in the Chicago area, but switched to information systems in the OR about 12 years ago. I have two beautiful supportive daughters and a wonderful husband. He however does not feel I need to lose weight and am "fine" just like I am.

Other Information:
I love to read, garden, garage sale, and be with family. I'm hoping to retire in 2 1/2 years when I'm 65 (if the economy permits)

Hi and welcome back to you as well. Well done not putting any weight on, it's a hard job this weight loss thing isn't it. Lol. They do say that anything worth while doing is hard. So I will try again and hopefully be successful. Good luck to you and take care. How's the new baby doing?

Thanks for commenting on my blog, "Training the Yearlings"! Yes, we both DO get a workout. I took a wrong step today while hurrying after Dutchess and fell flat on my face!! Took the fall well, though. No lasting effects! emoticon emoticon emoticon
