After retirement, I met my goal of losing 60 pounds in 5 years. Then last summer I had a fall. In a wheelchair, then a walker and being fed by my wonderful caretaker, I regained 30 pounds. Finishing physical therapy at the end of December, I decided to get a personal trainer to lose the weight. In the last month, I met my goal of losing 6 pounds per month. But I also went down one size. What is more important? I think the size, because now I have a lot more strength, am close to losing my limp and can raise my right arm another 10 degrees. I want another 10 before I am done. This will enable me to resume canoeing and swimming the crawl, which are my long-term goals for this summer. Will I meet my goal? My fitness trainer believes I will. I only can afford her another month, but I plan to carry on with the fitness videos on SP after that. Please--wish me luck.
