Quick intro: My name is Virginia, Iím 59, 174 pounds (down from 276 in 2000), been managing a window of about 5 pounds for 2 years or so, trying hard to get to 167. Iíve been in CK for 3 years and have met some wonderful people here.
My goal is to re-establish some of the healthy habits Iíve let slip awayÖexercise, in particular. I know I can lose weight if I set my calories as CK suggests, get my green check and drink my water. Itís a simple formula of calories out being less than calories in.
Iím noticing the effects of aging on my body, skin and hair. Iíve accepted that Iím aging and want to do so gracefully and with health and vigor. I saw this group and thought Iíd give it a try.
Iíll be browsing through the threads on this group, getting to know you all.
Cindi I was 49 when I started my weight loss program. After so many yo-yo experiences I decided on calorie counting and exercise. I lost slowly, but it stayed off. I made the decision to loose after my mother passed from heart disease and my husband was diagnosed as Type2 Diabetes. Add that to the fact I couldn't bend down to tie my sneaker in the shoe store (embarrassing)...those combined to give me the wake up call I needed.
Maddie I too want to be healthy. Life is so much more enjoyable. I've discovered that a healthy lifestyle leads to weight loss....imagine that! I'm constantly hungry and I do a lot of reading on why. I call it the pyschological aspect of weight loss...I need to constantly be aware of my relationship with food!
Hope to ďspeakĒ with you soon.
GOAL: 167 by 6/20/11 ~ 41 years married!
