A Little Old Lady in Training

11/23/2012 - Maintenance: The Final Frontier! Heck with "Space"... unless you're talking about what one fills.

For newbies to this page... I was not always like this. It has been a long road getting here, with lots of hills and valleys. The "really, really before" picture is hidden in my photo gallery. Pictures are good reality checks for me, but I ran out of room and dumped some of the "in progress" progress photos to make room for recent athletic ones. I did keep the before ...
11/23/2012 - Maintenance: The Final Frontier! Heck with "Space"... unless you're talking about what one fills.

For newbies to this page... I was not always like this. It has been a long road getting here, with lots of hills and valleys. The "really, really before" picture is hidden in my photo gallery. Pictures are good reality checks for me, but I ran out of room and dumped some of the "in progress" progress photos to make room for recent athletic ones. I did keep the before January 2010 one that marked the beginning of maintenance, and you can see that in maintenance phase I've still become fitter.

Why "A little old lady in training"? "Little" because I have become small. "Old lady" because that is my goal, to live to a ripe old age. "In training" because that's how I intend to make that goal happen: by training my mind and body.

I stopped "drifting" downwards on the scale in July or August, 2010. I have become comfortable calling the 120's "home". I had found a comfortable way of eating healthy, a comfortable calorie range, and a training goal to keep fitness level alive. This is how I want to live the rest of my life.

Update 7/1/2014 - Basic biographical: I am a 61 and a half year old empty-nester. I've lost, regained, lost, regained, lost in cycles of years, across decades. I am more confident of maintenance than ever before in my life. If it takes the rest of my life to learn how to do this, I'll take that long, but I feel I'm very close.

No name-brand program or diet is the "final answer" for me: I'm a compulsive over-eater. I might change programs to give myself a motivational shot in the arm, and as long as the program I choose to use is balanced nutrition and activity, I'm good. The end goal is to keep working at developing and maintaining healthy habits.

SparkPoints: 117,094

Fitness Minutes: 93,184

My Goals:
Stay on track, live consistently, be healthy. That means a balanced diet and an active lifestyle. Nothing says you have to curl up in a ball just because you're past the half-century mark.

My Program:
The two pieces of my program:

1) Reduce my intake of saturated fats, while eating a balanced diet with my favorite fruits and veggies prominent.

2) Keep moving at the rate of 30 minutes of walking almost every day, and two strength training days a week.

Personal Information:
Obviously, from my groups, you might infer I'm from Nebraska. You would be right. I grew up around here, moved away while my son was young, and moved back when he was a teenager. Love it here, it's home.

It is good to know that after 5 years people at your job are accepting the new skinny you with more comments. I think what hit me was realizing that 3 years ago, I accepted and reacted to those comments from position of lacking self confidence. Now if someone made those comments again to me, I would confidently confront them.

Here is to feisty maintenance.

By the way, I almost ended that blog, copying your ending blog comments..Life is so much better when you are fit. I am glad you are enjoying a life of being fit and thin. I am so much happier as well.

Thanks for the book and I also visited the page of that person you mentioned.
There for the grace of God, go I.
Not out of the woods yet but at least I can still hug my family.
Thanks.

LOL, life going nutso?
You haven't heard the half of it this time, dear spark friend. It all will come out in the wash as my Nana used to say.
In the meantime, not only have I placed the mask on my face first, I've also inflated the life-vest and am about to turn on the position indicator light!
Yet I keep on moving, one foot in front of the other- at a 3.15 mph speed! emoticon
