Current Weight:(19 Aug 16) 159.0 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: HCB's own diet
performance: losing 0.2 lb a week

I am a 61 year old woman with the hope of reducing my weight for my health and to meet my fitness goals of increasing muscle and losing body fat. 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 about my health.

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 profile photo is me in August 2016. My progress photos are displayed below.

Intermittent Fasting and Low Carb/High Protein
What a relief! Thank-you, kookywit for your comments.

intermittent fasting
"No Wheat For Me" - Many people do 16:8 Intermittent Fasting which just means eating within an 8 hour window. I have been doing it for 18 months and lost over 80 pounds - perhaps you could do some research before you tell others it will "ruin your metabolism." Starvation mode is a myth. I workout five days a week, and have plenty of energy - and I am 61 years old!

YOU are important to thousands!
Yes, we are what our ancestors hoped us to be...and we carry it forward so why not be the best we are able at this time?

Protein Powder
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard offers good tasting protein. It depends why you want to use powders - I drink them to increase protein totals to build muscle. If you want to hold off hunger, a snack may be better like hard boiled eggs, unsalted almonds, Greek yogurt, etc.
