Hi! I''m a 68 year old woman who wants to stay as healthy as possible so I can continue to enjoy my "Golden Years"! I lost 90 pounds from June 2009 when I started Sparkpeople, to June 2011 and have been maintaining that weight loss with the help of Spark and my FitBit! I gained 10 pounds after a wonderful once in a lifetime month long trip to Europe in September 2013 and have been struggling since. But I haven''t given up once. I just keep getting up and trying again. Finally, with the help of Sparkpeople, Judith Beck's book THE BECK DIET SOLUTION and the Spark Beck team, I reached my goal weight on Jan 13, 2016 for a total weight loss of 95 pounds.

My Goals:
I have lost around 90 pounds and had wanted to lose at least 15 more. I have become more active and have drastically reduced my portion size. I am enjoying learning to eat a more healthful "clean" diet. I'm working on my weight loss 5 pounds at a time now that I am getting closer to goal. Recently, I have decided (with my doctor's encouragment) to take a "losing break". I will continue to eat healthfully and to stay active but will try to relax from the pressure of losing the last 10 or 15 pounds. I weigh weekly and will continue that to ensure that I stay in a 5 pound range. I have recently started running and have raced 2 5Ks and one 2 mile Turkey Trot.

My Program:
I am tracking daily and using the fit bit to log my activity. I have explained a little of the program to my DH who is helping me cook. He is retired, I took a healthy cooking class in 2010 after I was laid off from my nursing position. We are making much more healthful meals . I have been becoming more active since starting Spark and am enjoying a healthier life style.

Personal Information:
I live on the Front Range of Northern Colorado and spend lots of time at our mountain cabin where I have started trekking. I am married, have 2 grown children, 2 grandchildren, a Golden Retriever and a cat.

Other Information:
I love to read, hike, swim, bike, run and spend time with the grandkids. My 2 new hobbies are healthful cooking and running. I was laid off work Sep 1, 2010 and wasn't able to find another job so I just retired on my 65th birthday 5/10/12!

That is interesting that three meals a day is easier. I'm doing two at present on my very low calorie diet and though each is only 250 calories, find that I am 'just right' full. Smetimes I have to wait until later to eat my fruit. Life is full of surprises, and we are learning all the time.

Hi there. Thanks for checking out my Beck Trek redo blog. I have checked the book and the workbook. It's on page 192 of the book, but not on page 145 of the workbook. (my book and workbook weren't available when I did the Beck Trek so I used an ebook version. Not Optimal but it did the trick.) How are you doing with your Becking?
Love your blogs, friended you.
