I've been at my goal weight a few weeks but only recently learned about this team. I'll TRY to make this intro brief!
I'm 47 for one more month. I've been married for 29 years and have kids 21, 20, 18 & 16. I've been the infamous yo-yo most of my adult life. A large amount of my weight loss THIS TIME has been due to some rigid dietary restrictions due to an illness. (7-9 grams of fat, 600-800 calories plus supplements as prescribed by physicians)
I have reached and surpassed my goal. I've been given a weight range by my doctors which is very low by most standards (103-110). Because of my medical condition, it helps to maintain a low weight. I am monitored weekly with a massive amount of bloodwork and exams by my hemotologist and gastroenterologist. Other specialists are consulted as needed.
It feels good to achieve a goal. I am ready to work at fitness now and hope to be able to do some firming up. I've had a good week and will possibly get clearance to begin exercise at my appointment tomorrow (Monday).
Thanks for reading what ending up being a longer than intended post. But, trust me, it could have been much longer!!!
