Thrilled with this program!

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

I stumbled upon this web site after a candid conversation with my doctor. She told me that menopause and working 50+ hours a week was not an excuse for letting pounds pile up on me...it was a cop out. Yes, as I got older my metabolism had changed. And yes, it was easier to come home after an 11 hour work day to get in comfy jammies and curl up with a couple of beers. Now, with the help of this program, I write down and log every single thing I eat and drink. I check my reports. I follow the exercise guides, even when I sure don't feel like doing planks and lunges. I bought some gym clothes and joined a local Zumba class twice a week. I dug my bike out of the shed and pumped up the tires and rode it for the first time in years. God, that hurt! LOL! Bottom line...my thighs no longer rub together, I've lost 10 pounds in three weeks ,but have gotten so toned that I've changed my weight loss goal from 20 pounds to 14 pounds. The cellulite on my arms, just below my arm pits and my thighs is "disappearing". I feel "alive" and even on days when the program doesn't tell me to strength train, I find my self doing calf and wall push up exercises. I'm getting addicted! We took 3 of our grandchildren, ages 4,5, and 6 to the zoo yesterday. By days end, they were crying that they needed to be carried, but I was barely winded, and my legs didn't hurt at all. Thank goodness for this program and for my Doctor. I should send her flowers!
