Hello All,

I guess it's time to update my bio, since my situation has changed from originally joining years ago.

I've been on this health roller coaster most of my adult life (like many of you). I've bounced back and forth from the 300's to the low 200's several times. I even dropped to the high 170's almost 20 years ago. You'd think at 57 years old, I'd know better. Actually, with the experience of getting to 177 lbs, I DO know better. The knowledge that I gained it all back haunts me at times because I remember how good I felt at the lower weight. If reading this bio helps someone else to maintain their lower weight, then it's served it's purpose.

Well, enough of that. I'm back and moving the scales downward again. I've met several buddies on FS over the years and it really does help for someone to have your back, so thank you buddies for what you've done in the past and hopefully, the future help you'll provide. I'll also try to support you too.

Thanks for taking the time to read my bio.

Although it hasn't been 3 months (this time), I've gone from 327.8 (9/22) to 292.4 (this morning) in 11 weeks. I increased my food intake from previous times to lose the weight slower and not feel deprived like before. I'm counting calories but also trying to keep the carb level down where possible. I try to keep my food intake around 1500-1600 Kcals because I don't track the 5 calorie sugar free gum and drink mixes (with water). I figure I probably get another 150 or so calories per day from those. I try to have at least 3 lean proteins, 3 fruits and 3 veggies (minimum) per day. These are spread over 5 to 6 meals during the day. I'm not able to exercise much because of some health issues, but I do try to add some activity when I can.

I consider this a "work in progress" and I'm always looking for ways to improve. I guess I know enough about diet to know how much I don't know! Smile

I have about 92 lbs. to reach my goal and I figure I should reach it late summer of next year. Well, that's the plan anyway!

I'm interested in hearing from more folks on this thread about what's worked for you.

Thanks for starting it myawethinTICself.
