Current Weight:(20 Feb 14) 194.6 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: HCB's own diet
performance: losing 0.4 lb a week

I am a 58 year old woman with the hope of reducing my weight for my health and to meet my fitness goals. Up until I was about 45 years old, I exercised regularly and watched all my food choices. In fact. when I was 40 years old, I was in the best condition. This was an accomplishment since I had been an overweight kid, and battled weight off and on for most of my adult life.

Then, menopause hit and I started a more sedentary job...and I also have hypothyroid! I just slowed down and didn't seem to care anymore.

I have done organized programs at the gym, and food programs. I tend to do well for a while until I hit the dreaded plateau...and then I am discouraged and give up. I WILL NOT give up this time.

My progress photos are displayed below.

If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

Nighttime eating
Peanut butter is mostly fat and high fructose sugars - so hard to resist! I switched to almond butter and it is OK. I tend to not overeat it and it has healthy benefits without the additives. Or maybe find peanut butter that is ONLY peanuts and a little salt.

Experience with planet fitness?
I am not a member at Planet Fitness - but I have gone there several times as a "drop-in" member. It is clean, has many options for cardio and weights, and has a no pressure environment. It is least expensive compared to most places, but you have to be very self-motivated.

Labs totally out of whack
So...it depends on what kind of carbs you choose to eat. Oatmeal is good, fruits and veggies are good.

Garcina Cambogia...
Tried it for two weeks but it didn't seem to do anything for me.
