*********
Now 66, in the last two years I retired from my job, left my marriage, and moved - after 25 years in the midwest - back to the mountains of Western Maryland, not far from where I grew up.

I joined Spark in October 2010 at 174 which is obese for 5'2 (highest weight was 178); dropped down to 159, just barely out of obese range, then stayed around 160 for four years, but still was losing inches and gaining control over binge eating. In June 2015 I buckled down to drop another 10 pounds for health reasons. Two months later I've plateaued at 152 but am aiming for 145 as my goal weight.

For the past three years I've been following the WheatBelly low-carb program (no refined carbs, plenty of good fats, no grains or processed foods) which has brought my blood sugar down from diabetic to prediabetic and has also lowered my cholesterol.

My Goals:
Leave Obese BMI - DONE
Leave Overweight BMI - 15 pounds to go.


My Program:
Exercise: ST class twice a week, swimming, walking and mountain hiking.
Food: I've cut out all sugars and grains for several years to control my blood sugar. I use almond flour and garbanzo flour in recipes and sweeten with stevia. Emphasis is on protein and good fats. I don't always get in as many vegetables as I should, so working on that. I limit fruits.
