50 AND FABULOUS

I guess I'm officially a Senior (at least according to AARP). I have had major back surgery and have rods in my back. This cause the siatic nerve to be crushed. I have trouble with my right leg. Then I was diagnosed with cervical cancer and the pin point radiation caused further damage to my right leg, especially my hip. If anyone out there knows of any exercises that won't irritate my right leg and hip, I'm open for suggestions.

Hi I just happened upon the post below and I want to say that I totally agree with you. I know that i can easily maintain a weight of about 130 to 135. I am 5'2" tall and I used to try to get down to 110 to 120. It's way too hard for me to maintain that weight. I am very very obese right now. My goal weight is to be 130. But as I get to about 150 I will re-evaluate my goal. Anyway....I just really liked the post below.

In reading your message, I just read an article today in "O" Magazine about how they're finding the BMI readings are not as accurate as once thought. The article has found that one woman who was in the "overweight" range of the BMI was actually healthier than a woman who was in the "normal" range. What the difference was, was the "overweight" woman exercised regularly and had very good cholesterol, blood pressure, and other levels. The "normal" range woman did not exercise, had more visceral fat (fat around her mid section), and her cholesterol and blood pressure readings were not good. The article also went on to say that the BMI scale does not take into consideration bone structure, breast size, or the amount of visceral fat the person has. It is being proven that blood pressure, cholesterol, and tigliceride levels, visceral fat, and how much exercise a person gets per week are better indicators of health. The article also went on to verify that people who have more weight on them than is medically acceptable, live longer. It is also proven that as we age, if we eat healthy and exercise regularly, our bodies will stabilize at a weight that is right for us. When you think about it, what good does it do us to reach 115 pounds if it is hard for us to maintain that weight? I guess what I'm saying is we need to listen to our bodies and pay attention to real health indicators' not a number on the scale.

I will officially be 50 on March 4, 2009. I have spent the better part of those years taking care of everyone else (brothers, mother, husband, children, grandchildren). NOW IT IS TIME FOR ME!!!!!!! I have roughly 100 pounds to lose, but I WILL NOT let a number on the scale dictate how I will perceive myself. I will lose the extra weight that is unhealthy for my body. I will incorporate daily exercise (even if it's only for 5 minutes a day to start). I will allow God to guide me on this journey. Together with God and the help I receive from other members, I know that all my goals are possible. emoticon
