My Weight Loss Journey

I've decided that if I lose 15 pounds in 2014, I will reward myself with a subscription to People Magazine and if I don't lose 15 pounds, I'll hire a personal trainer. And, I will fit into the brand new size 18 jeans I've had for two years!

INFO about me...

I am 54 years old and I started at 264 pounds in 1998 and have been trying to get down to 150 pounds since then.

INFO about me...

I am 54 years old and I started at 264 pounds in 1998 and have been trying to get down to 150 pounds since then.

I have rheumatoid autoimmune disease, which sometimes makes it difficult to exercise, but in 2009, I exercised 253 days and in 2010, I exercised 344 days! Now some of those days were only 10 or 15-minute exercise sessions but the point is that exercise is doable even when you're sore and most of the time, it actually makes me feel better!

Unfortunately, I gained 6 pounds other the course of the year.

And, then in 2011, I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my knees and wasn’t able to do as much exercise as I did in the past two years. But, I did some physio on my knees and by the end of 2011, I was exercising more days than not even with some kickboxing. Woohoo!

I exercised a total of 144 days for the whole year and lost the 6 pounds that I gained in 2010. I did that with a combination of Weight Watchers at the beginning of the year and with the support of the Awesome A Team on the 5% Challenges on SparkPeople in the latter part of year. And, I only gained 1 pound over the Christmas holidays with their help as well!

In 2012, I found the BLC challenges and my wonderful Amazon Warriors team and with their help, I lost another 11 pounds from September 2012 to April 2013, which puts me at my lowest weight since 2008!

In 2013, I exercised 325 days and lost 11 pounds.
