Hi Guys, I am back. Not only did life happen but my computer pooped the bed. I couldn't afford a new one right away so I am now using a cast off from my friend.

Hi Eileen, Alan, Linda, VATrucker, and all. I haven't been active in this or any group, but thank you Eileen for stepping up. My understanding of a stickie topic is a special topic written by the leader, like the one calling for introductions, that never goes away - stickie. If we write enough posts, the old, time-sensitive ones will be deleted, I guess.
Congratulations Linda on well rounded success, fitting some veggies and their super beneficial fiber into the hamburger and lifting half of your very svelt weight. I'm with you VATrucker: I am committed to getting myself so fit that I never have to go through by-pass surgery again, no matter how long I live.
I was just 58 when I had my surgery at the beginning of last October. I'm in an at-work health program, supported in part by our health insurance, to reduce weight and get healthy. It ends at the end of June and I'm trying to be reasonable, yet reach an acceptable body fat percentage by then.
If you'll really do anything, check into green vegetable based or whole food based diets. I haven't been a purist since the operation, but I go several days at a time by those recommendations. Basically, it means cleansing your diet of all processed foods, no refined (white) flour, refined sugar (table sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, etc.), processed vegetable oil (no chips, no popcorn cooked with oil, no fried food), and very little animal products (even lean protein). Watch "Forks over Knives" or read "Eat to Live" to learn more.
My son and I (he is developmentally disabled) get to our local YMCA gym three times a week for hard work-outs on cardio machines. It's really working. I found out through my trainer via my at-work health program, that my target reduced healthy weight should be higher if I retain muscle while losing weight. So far out of 40 lbs, 13 have been lost muscle. There are two-handed devices that measure your percentage of body fat. For a guy pushing 60 the high end of healthy is 21.9%. The ladies are healthy at a much higher body fat percentage. Following is a link to a chart for body fat percentages: http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/library/blbo
dyfatcharts.htm I hope you can make it work and it does some good. For many people, going by body fat percentage is a much more accurate measure of health than the simplistic Body Mass Index. If I keep on losing muscle at the rate I have been, I should get down to 165 pounds. If I manage to keep the muscle I have now, not even put on a pound more, I'd have the same body fat percentage at 175 pounds, and a faster daily metabolism. I love my trainer. Maybe if I stop writing books, I'll post more than twice a year.

I am not the authority but my understanding of sickie is you get a response when someone posts after you.

Rayleen789 said she was going to take on the lead. I think life happened and it did not work.

I have been fighting with my self over eating right. Gee a handful of cheesits won't heart, that kind of fight. My husband is a meat and Potatoes guy. I hid squash in spagetie and it worked. Textured vegetable Preteen to stretch a lb of hamb to look like two with low sodium beef bullion Beans and rice with 1/4 lb hamb .Veggies
it has been a while (May two years) Starting small I worked up to 50 lbs lifting . At 106lb last time I weighed my self that is almost half my weight

Hi Alan, thanks for the welcome. It looks as if you are doing really well with your weight loss.
How are you doing it. Are you following any special plan or just pushing yourself away from the table.

Hi Everyone, My name is Eileen and a couple of days ago I was signing up for this team and I was informed that you had an inactive team leader so I applied. Sparks notified the present team leader, AUNTGA, and she did not respond so here I am. I am going to try to revive this team and make it truly functional for us all. I see that membership in this team is 119, I don't know how many are active. Please respond to this posting and let me know that you are there. I am also open to any suggestions you have.
