Start Weight:(17 Feb 11) 176.6 lb
Current Weight:(30 Jan 15) 143.2 lb
Goal Weight:125.0 lb
following: KSttride's own diet
performance: losing 0.9 lb a week

I'm 53, married with two children and so far one grandchild. I grew up on a farm where processed food was really something that was an unusual item on the menu. I look back now and realize how hard we worked not only in the garden but doing other things around the place. My favorite foods at the time were vegetables which probably was why I barely got above 110 lbs by high school graduation. Those were the days when really and truly I was the last one at the table and could eat anything I wanted. Sigh.....

In the last 10yrs I've been up to 176 or so twice. I managed to lose 53 lbs (in 1yr & 4months) about 7yrs ago. I lost all the way down to 122. I kept journals of everything I ate as well as an attached diary. I finally found them again (we had moved) and seriously can't see how I managed to lose as much with what was listed. I hadn't listed any calories etc, just the food. I was much more active at the time so I'm sure that helped. I'm not as active now but have got to begin again. I mean geeze I've got a gym in my basement. (treadmill, bike, weights - unheated and cold!) Some medical issues- plantar fasciitis,(somewhat controlled), hypothyroidism, a need to get some of my blood chemistries corrected (which happened last time when I lost the weight).

Of course it seems to be taking much longer to lose this time but go it will! I have a closet full of great clothes that I haven't been able to wear in years and have really not bought much since the weight all came back. No more excuses!

Wish me luck!

By the way I still love vegetables...... :)

Know your privacy!!!
I remember reading something about this in some of the older forum posts. If you search about privacy it would probably come up. I just can't remember how long ago it was.

Thank all of you for so much helpful information! I haven't been online this week because I had a gallbladder attack and surgery. Home today and more determined than ever to purchase a new phone! My BB at times this week wouldn't even let me online without making an issue of it. Lousy timing! Again so many thanks for all your info!!! Smile

Thanks Niecee! That's very helpful! My BB is about 3-4 years old. Ancient by most standards I suppose. Do the droid phones have a specific website that lists what apps are available? BB app world is what I'm familiar with but at the moment it won't even load. Thanks for the info!
