Many of you sent wonderful emails of welcome--unfortunately before I figured out how to use the site. So, to each of you who sent those sweet notes, know that I'm very grateful. I think I've got the pieces straight now, so can actually respond to emails and posts.
I'm in the 50+ group with about 55 pounds to go. After years of yo-yo-ing with WW, which I've been convinced was the healthiest option out there, I started working on leptin resistance and that seems to be magic for now. I take chair yoga and aerobic classes at the JCC in NE Cola, and try to walk with them an hour a week. I've started working with Coach Nicole's workouts, which are short and great.
Recently retired, I finally have time to work on my own goals, the biggest of which is to get healthy and a whole lot slimmer. Looking forward to working on that goal with you folks...Go COLUMBIA!!
