Hi Aftonannie,

I just joined today. I hope this page is still active. I do wear a fitness tracker which has helped me to move more. However, I'm not on a program. I'm tracking what I eat on Spark People and keeping within my calorie guideline.

Hi,

Yes, I was born on August 24, 1958. Two more days to celebrate my 59th birthday. I'm early retired and trying to get in shape for my grands!

It's working...

I haven't been using any trackers (except for pounds lost), or counting grams of proteins or carbs. I've found how I, myself, should take care of my own body - not following any programs, or whatever. I've been "dieting" since I was 12 and look where it got me. I've finally learned to shut out the hoopla. I have to do this in the most natural way I can. If not, it just psyches me out, (wasn't that term was from the 70s?) I can just relax through it and finally enjoy the process this way.

I'm adding one new change to improve my health whenever I want - not when someone tells me it's time to.

I walk each day-probably about a mile now.

I drink 8 cups of water a day.

I haven't had any "sweets" for 20 days, (but I'm not counting any grams of sugar for this). Psychologoically it works for me. Tonight for the first time, hubby and I have planned a small treat together. IF I don't do that every once in awhile - I know that when a holiday comes along and then I finally have a treat - I'll binge and lose my progress.

I've been eating a lot more fresh fruits and veggies, and I'm actually enjoying them - must be that I don't have the sugar drawing me away from them. My hubby's buying them and just puts them in the fridge - doesn't say anything to me about them.

And I don't eat after 7:00 pm, which has also helped enormously with reflux!

Without even realizing it, I'm feeling 100% better than I have for years.

Someone join with me, please.

Without any big fanfare, I'm moving forward. In medical-speak I'm morbidly obese, and have been for over 20 years. I've been experiencing so many big changes in my body during the last 2-3 years, that I now HAVE to eat healthier and exercise from now on. How about all you people??

So, I'm not on any program, I've finally learned that I have to do this the slow but SURE way. Gratefully - I'm not diabetic, so I'm not counting any sugars, carbs, or fat grams, because that has psyched me out my whole life. Small changes please.

But with a lot of prayer I've gotten myself to where I haven't had any "sweets" for 13 1/2 days, and I'm drinking 8 glasses of water a day. Today, I'm starting on not eating anything after 7:00 pm. My hubby is on a program at work and is buying all kinds of fruits and veggies for us, and slowly but surely I'm getting used to them. Thankfully, I have lost 3.5 lbs this week - because I've been moving like crazy! And when I say "moving" I mean it both ways...I'm getting movement that I haven't gotten for - forever, and it's because we are "moving" out of our house to a new one. I'm experiencing hip problems, so I'm also purposely doing a couple of those exercises daily. I pray I will not have to have any surgery on them.....

I was born June 6, 1958, so I'm 59 years old.

We were born the year the highly revered Hula Hoop was invented, so how can we help but be successful in our program???

This will be my (our) best year ever!

I started ok, but the past week did not do good. Friday's are my weigh in day. Tried it every day but with losing one pound a week was waist of time. I am on low carbs, which is very hard as I am a carb addict, and diabetic. But I know I can do it cause I did for 6 weeks. Today will be my back-to-it day.

One day at a time, and set your eating goals.
