Losing weight at Bag End

It's a New Year and time to get moving again!

I've lost 111 pounds since April, 2006, and have gone from 308 to 197. The weight has crept up now to 225, on January 1, 2009, and I really would like to get into normal BMI range by the end of this year. I'm 5 feet 9 inches tall, so to get my BMI in the normal range I need to get down to at least 164 pounds. I'm 62 now and it's time to get this weight off for good!

Dale and I have been on this weight loss journey ...

Dale and I have been on this weight loss journey together and he's lost 100 pounds since we started and we keep encouraging each other to keep at it little by little. He's my husband, my best friend and the best part of my life.

My Goals:
BMI to be within healthy range by 2010. I'm 5 feet 9 inches tall, so to get my BMI in the normal range I need to get down to at least 164 pounds.

My Program:
I'm using basically a low glycemic 1300 - 1600 calorie ADA diet, exercising daily for 30 minutes or more if possible.

I weighed 308 in March 2006 and got down to 197 in 14 months using Nutrisystem. My weight has gradually crept up to 214 and I need to get back on track using my own foods following a 1300-1600 calorie ADA diet.

Other Information:
I'm a retired RN and was working at home doing medical transcription for 9 years. I am now fully retired as of September 15, 2008.

I love my hubby; our dog, Remy; reading, anything to do with LOTR, the Hobbit, Dune and Harry Potter. I especially love audible books and download them into my iPod so I can keep listening to my books and do my mundane chores around the house.

Hi fellow LOTR fan! I see we also have Harry Potter in common. If you're ever in Reno or if I get to Vegas we'll have to get together!
