I want to: -Lose 55 pounds -get fit -build up my upper body strength -feel more healthy -wear nice clothes -be able to wear a swimsuit
Keeping calories below 1300 a day. Start walking again.
I live in Canada in Victoria BC on Vancouver Island 6 months a year and in Nuevo Vallarta 6 months a year. I have two sons 22 & 25 and a step daughter 38 I am married to Roger. I am retired 6 years now.
I don't think it is ever too late! I was on no prescription meds until I reached 67; then had two mini strokes in just a few days. The doctor said that my healthy diet and exercise probably mitigated the seriousness of the strokes and I am fully recovered. No, my good habits didn't keep the strokes from happening but they may have given me the ability to survive and regain all my strength.
Good for you for making a commitment to healthy habits.
Your blog really hit home with me today. I am 56 and am not taking any prescription meds. I have always been healthy and I have always fought with my weight. I have printed your blog and will look at it everyday as a reminder. Please keep me updated on your journey. I will be thinking of you and cheering you on. Thank you for the inspiration!
I saw your post today and just wanted to tell you it is never too late! I ate horribly for most of my adult life, tons of processed foods and SUGAR SUGAR SUGAR all the time. When I turned 51, like you, I realized I needed to make changes if I was going to feel good as I aged. I was terrified of not having sugar but once I made small changes and saw and felt the difference, I’ve never looked back. I am 55 this year and have never felt better. You CAN absolutely change the course of your aging process and reverse the damage that eating poorly and not exercising has done over time and you are doing it! Just as quitting smoking imparts immediate health benefits that keep building over time, so can changes in diet and exercise habits have an overwhelming (positive) physical impact. Keep up the good work!
