I'm doing the Ideal Protein diet using a mixture of IP products, various protein powders and alternatives that meet similar nutritional values.

Just started the Couch to 5K program, I do strength training with dumbells twice a week and like to walk as often as I can. I'm hoping to get back to swimming once the weather warms up a little.

Just turned 50 and loving how my body feels 70lbs lighter. The success of this diet is spurring me on to reach a normal body weight ...

Just turned 50 and loving how my body feels 70lbs lighter. The success of this diet is spurring me on to reach a normal body weight with a much lower body fat percentage. I am determined not to suffer the early deaths my parents did if I can possibly help it.

I have already started looking at food plans for maintenance (although I'd like to drop another 50lbs or so) and realise that my body is extremely happy running on fat, rather than carbs, so the paleo/primal hybrid that follows similar macros will be my starting point.

Hi there!

You made a comment on my latest comparison photo that I wanted to thank you for. You noted that I am standing differently than in the original photo, so I took a close look and saw that you were right.

I spent some time thinking about why that would be, and I think I had gotten to a point where I felt so ashamed and disappointed in myself for my out of control eating. I was embarrassed to even stand in front of a camera; that's the first picture I've willingly taken in years.

I hadn't realized until you pointed it out that I've been standing taller these last few weeks and now its another thing to be proud of!

Best,
Annalise

g'day !

for Christmas, one of Geoff's gifts to me was an AeroGarden. we finally set it up a week ago with Petunia pods & i'm so impatient for them to come up! not really a fan of petunias but i do think it's fun to try & grow stuff in the middle of winter. emoticon

this has been a rough couple of weeks for my back ~ pain anywhere from a low of 2.5 {uncomfy but i can function} to over 8 & unable to do anything without tears streaming down my face. the prescription meds help somewhat. the main thing is that I'm not gonna use my back as an excuse not to exercise even if i have to build up at the speed of a emoticon

Cisco & Casanova are fine. In fact today, Casanova caught a small lizard & then shared the eating of it with Cisco!

Geoff is wanting me to go back to college this coming fall & i'm feeling really ambivalent about that, especially since we'd have to come back here in August rather than late October. We'll see.

How are you & your hubby? Are you guys still living in Texas? Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I love seeing your comments on the Friend Feed ~ you're doing so great emoticon

Marie

way to go on your continuing progress! I'm not making progress but then that's just a lack of commitment on my part mixed with an equal amount of depression.

Geoff (dH) is serious about losing weight now so I'm gonna try to latch onto his attitude and energy

Hi Briael!
I am on the same diet, (not program, but the concept) and it is SO great to get rid of that voracious appetite for anything sugary. The carb craving disappeared for me as well. Good for you getting out of the obese category! That is awesome! emoticon
