I "recently" retired January 2012 and am enjoying life immensely!! I also lost the stress weight I put on - approximately 36 pounds - and am now working on losing the remaining belly fat (probably about five pounds more). Now it's time to stay quit smoking!

I found that my wardrobe has expanded by virtue of the clothes I kept from when I was smaller as well as the ones I had bought in the meantime to motivate me to lose the weight. Now I don't have to go shopping, plus when I watch the fashion commercials I find myself thinking "I can wear ALL those outfits and look good!!" Needless to say, my options as far as what I can wear have definitely expanded!!

My Goals:
I gained approximately 12 pounds due to life's stressors. So I want to lose 10 pounds, go on maintenance and continue enjoying hiking, walking my dog, Honey Bear and doing whatever else my heart desires as far as activity wise. I also want to stay quit smoking!!

My Program:
1. Track all food or drink consumed in my journal.

2. Walk my dog Honey Bear every day.

3. Workout at the gym at least four times a week - treadmill with HIIT or Jillian Michaels DVD

4. ST three days a week.

Personal Information:
I guess you could say I'm a California native, having lived in Los Angeles for 37 years. I "recently" retired January 2012 and am absolutely loving life! I am single, totally footloose and fancyfree with no kids; and I had a German Shepard mix named Prinny who I had to send over the Rainbow Bridge December 2014. I really miss her, but I got another "child" at the shelter, a pitbull mix whose name is Honey Bear. Life is good again!!

Other Information:
I love to read, hike, sail, watch movies and walk my dog Honey Bear. I am a member of several groups on Meetup.com and will join a group for going to a new restaurant, hikes, dancing, clubs, concerts or the theater. A great way of meeting new people, for sure!

    Welcome to the 50+ with 10 pounds or less to lose. It is a wonderful team. I too retired (five years ago) and really enjoy it. I know you will too.

    Welcome to Living Binge Free where we take the emphasis off targeting weight loss and concentrate instead on learning to feed ourselves moderately no matter what the situation.

    I'm so envious of your retirement. I didn't start into my teaching career until after I was 40 so I'm just trying to hang in there for a few more years.
