Hi. I am a 63 year old who had pre-diabetes but through my intense progressive weight lifting program and increased activity, my fasting blood sugar has gone from 116 to 94-100 99% of the time.

My nutrition and exercise plan are below under MY PROGRAM

5% challenge goals lose 9 lbs in 8 weeks
To lose from 178.4 lbs to 169.4 pounds in 8 weeks
From July 1 - August 26
Burn 3290 calories a week
Eat from 1350 - 1700 calories a week

With 2 hours a day of exercise and eating within this calorie range, I will lose at least 9 pounds in the 8 week challenge.

My Goals:
To lose 5% of my body weight (which will be 9 pounds) in 8 weeks. The Challenge starts July 1st and ends on August 26th. That will bring my weight to 168.6

My ultimate weight goal is 120-130 pounds. I plan to increase upper body strength until I can pull up and chin up my body weight. I plan to increase stamina until I can walk 90 minutes at 4 mph so I can complete the slowest pre-programmed walking program on my treadmill. I plan to get back into my size 9 jeans (from back in the day when a 9 was a REAL size 9! What is a size ZERO, anyway? Just sayin'..) which was a 28' waist.


My Program:
My eating plan is high fiber (up to 45 grams fiber split between my meals) and 50 grams or less NET carbs split between 3 meals and a snack. I was eating a LOT of food because my exercise was intense but have dropped the wt training and calisthenics in favor of walking 2mph for 105 min a day and dancing for 15.



Personal Information:
Married 43 years in 2017 to a wonderful man. Two grown children, 6 grands and a great-grand. Love to cook. Also sew, knit, crochet, cross stitch and crafts. Read. Play piano, saxophone, and accordion. Had a very hard time when the kids left the nest. Took 13 years for me to get over it. Gained this weight when I got something called Lichen Planus (they don't know what causes it). A lot of people have it in their mouths, and a few break out in a rash. I was one of the "lucky" ones and had it for 16 years. It is lavender and itches and spreads just like poison ivy. I personally believe it was due to the fact that I had just taken a round of powerful antibiotics and my immune system aka gut bacteria was "wiped out." The doctors were no help at all, but after research and nurturing my flora the outbreaks stopped in 2009 and it has been gone, even out of my mouth for 6 years. Now I am only left with the weight gain it caused. That will be history soon. This has been with me LONG ENOUGH!


Other Information:
My true highest beginning weight was 227 in Feb of 2011. Somewhere I think there is a picture of me then. If I can find it, it will be my Before Picture. Lost 20 in 4 months by just watching myself and my portions. Went on Atkins for 4 months and lost 32 more but felt deprived and cholesterol was going up. Got off Atkins and gained 20 back. Then started back with SparkPeople just eating lower carbs than the tracker has for me. Have lost 9 pounds since then.
As of Dec 18, 2013 I began the Virgin Diet. In 6 1/2 weeks and I lost from 185 to 172 and felt better than ever!!
However, I left and gained back up to 200 and am back again. This time is the charm!
