Say it loud...I'm 60 and proud

I can honestly say that the second half of my life has been truly §MARVELOUSˇ¨.

After being overweight most of my life; including childhood, I have finally reached a point where I am eating to live and not living to eat. I have dropped the label of being full-figure or big boned but have actually been described as ˇ§healthyˇ¨ fit, or sexy.

The combination of losing weight, exercising and strength training I was able to turn my body age back to 42; a gain of 15 ...
I can honestly say that the second half of my life has been truly §MARVELOUSˇ¨.

After being overweight most of my life; including childhood, I have finally reached a point where I am eating to live and not living to eat. I have dropped the label of being full-figure or big boned but have actually been described as ˇ§healthyˇ¨ fit, or sexy.

The combination of losing weight, exercising and strength training I was able to turn my body age back to 42; a gain of 15 years.

In 2009, at age 55, I set my sight to ˇ§figure competeˇ¨ and I accomplished that goal. I competed twice and the second time around I finished in 3rd place for the age group 50 and over. Also at age 55, I completed my first 5K for breast cancer, where I placed 3rd for age 50 ˇV 55 female. This is from a woman who hates to run and at the best use to be able to run in one minute increments.

I am one of those rare women who went through menopause without any major issues or need for medication and I think one of the factors which contributed to an easy transaction was because of my healthy life style. Also because of the strength training, my bone density results either improved or have not decrease over the last few years. All of these factors I owe to a healthy life style.

Life is great and how many 58 year old women still have the guts to put on a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleading outfit and jump out of a birthday cake.

I cannot wait to see how ˇ§FANTASTICˇ¨ my 60s will be , which is two years from now, because I have truly ˇ§ROCKEDˇ¨ my 50s.

You are only as old as you feel and I feel great!!!

Hey girl.. thanks for stopping by and for sharing those beautiful photos of you.

I have fallen completely off the wagon, but I plan to start back on January 1st. I don't know, it's tough, but I am not quitting and this time I am going to try a different approach, I will blog about it. I am miserable right now feeling like this emoticon and looking forward to getting started.

Sorry to hear about Rodney's knee slipping, hopefully this next surgery will solve the problem. Has he lost any weight yet, I am sure that would help as well. 6 months is a long time, might as well set the date!!!... hint, hint!!!! emoticon

Hey Char, quick question. In your before pic, what size did you wear and how much did you weigh? Just curious how many dress sizes and weight you lost.

Enjoy your day! emoticon

Hey Ms. Char... thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog.

I do know about the protein, my macros will be 20/35/45 or 25/35/40... but I like the site because of the meal ideas, I will just increase/decrease macros where needed.

Well, week 1 is almost over. This was not a perfect week because I am still getting my menus/recipes/supplies together, but come next week I should have it together. My intentions are to post some menus in a blog, please give me your feedback.

Well, I am going to do some kickboxing and then fix something to eat. I hope you posted in your nutritional tracker, I can get some ideas from you too!

Thanks for your support... enjoy your evening. emoticon
