Journey to thin- the Poundage Plan

My weight has been a lifelong battle: Diet/lose/gain. Diet/lose/gain. At 55, it was high time I put that cycle behind me. My arthritis was so bad in my knees, I had a hard time going up and down stairs. This had to STOP!

My youngest birth kid, Meg, got a free month membership at the local "Y" and convinced me to join with her. OK, no dieting, but I could use the exercise for my poor knee.

My weight has been a lifelong battle: Diet/lose/gain. Diet/lose/gain. At 55, it was high time I put that cycle behind me. My arthritis was so bad in my knees, I had a hard time going up and down stairs. This had to STOP!

My youngest birth kid, Meg, got a free month membership at the local "Y" and convinced me to join with her. OK, no dieting, but I could use the exercise for my poor knee.

Imagine my surprise to find that I could play racquetball and with a little modification, take classes. I am using the cardio room every day and the weight room every other day.

The bonus? My diet evolved into a healthier diet! I no longer want junk. After only 1 week and a loss of about 5-6 pounds (not focusing on the scale!) my pain decreased.

After less than 10 months, I hit my 'goal' of being healthier, fitter and weighing 116# less than when I started. At just under 1 year, I hit my final adjusted goal with a weight loss of 135# on July 23,1957.

I now embark on a journey of a new me; a journey that I have never before taken. A journey of maintenance. I am confident that the same tools that I used to lose this weight will help me learn to maintain that weightloss.

#4 -- reasons I smiled in 2014! She said yes….

We are more than a little excited. They live quite a distance from us so I'm not privy to the major planning but we will be making sure the whole family is together for this BLESSED EVENT!

My oldest lives in SPOKANE WA and my youngest and his family reside in town (MEDFORD OR) about 20 minutes from us.

#5 – countdown of top reasons I smiled in 2014! chocolate tomatoes.

we never heard of them before last year. we skipped the chocolate mint but tried the chocolate varieties in peppers and tomatoes. they were both yummy but the peppers didn't produce much for us or come back.

Always a special blessing when I allow GOD to do the work so I don't have to!
