Getting older can be AWESOME!!

Hi thanks for stopping by .....

I never once exercised until 2009. Sparkpeople changed my life. I had been bedridden for 12 years due to illness, in turn which lead to an increase of weight by 60 lbs. I needed to get back on my feet and healthy..... googled weight loss program and here my journey began.

I lost 50 lbs. in the first 3 years looking good and feeling great ..... then I accidently injured my knee, not able to exercise as much awaiting for knee surgery ...

I lost 50 lbs. in the first 3 years looking good and feeling great ..... then I accidently injured my knee, not able to exercise as much awaiting for knee surgery which took 2 years. Gained back 20 lbs. (ouch) At 62 it seems so much more difficult to loose the weight....... sooooooo S L O W !

I will conquer this by my Spark Anniversary in May .... I refuse to give up ........ I'm stubborn :D

My Program:
Spark Activity Tracker
Polar HR Monitor
Fitbit Charge HR :0)

1. Weigh, track and log everything I eat and drink. Enter all Nutritional Info. for every grocery purchased. It makes it so much easier for tracking.

Eliminate processed foods as much as I can

Ensure that all necessary Nutrients are met (i.e. fibre, calcium, sodium, etc.)

Drink 8-10 cups of water daily

Daily Calorie Differential of 500

2. Exercise 7 days/wk.(unless I'm ill):

- 5 days a week at the gym at 5:00 am (hardly anyone there, I get to try out different equipment )

- 2 days a week at home with a project (i.e. dancing, kettle bell, cleaning and stepping etc.) I get bored easily so I need to change it up in 10 minute intervals.
