Current Weight

Performance: losing 2.4 lb a week

Goal Weight
160.0 lb
Still to go: 48.3 lb
I am 57 years young, have a 2nd go around with life to get fit and healthy, I worked 33 years in restaurants as manager and helped my husband with remodeling, being large was never a problem because I burned so many calories, then I changed careers about 10 years ago, office work and I let my body go, muscle mass is replaced by fat! even though I only really gained 40 lbs from my working weight, 40 lbs of fat is so much more to deal with! I was not even able to get off the couch without a struggle, even my thyroid stopped working for me!, but 5 weeks into this new commitment and I can not only get off the couch I am remodeling again, slowly but able to work out and walk again, can't wait to go hiking! I live in the NW and we have some beautiful trails in the woods that are worth the hike, had no energy the last few years to do anything but sit and do nothing. My doc told me last year not to worry about weight until I had at least 1 year not smoking then Feb 1 she said go for it, All my blood test after just 4 weeks and I have no health issues but I will stay on thyroid meds for probably another 6 months just to be sure I stay on the losing track, then hopefully no more pills, that is my goal all natural and healthy, slow but steady...

Reboot
Not sure what your eating plan is but... I have "food for thought" for you. Try to not think this as a diet after all the word "Diet" is what you eat no matter what it is.
If you were to look at my daily intake and I am very honest about what I put in my body, (or I could not hold my self accountable) you will see that I eat pretty much what I like to eat, I just managed to use portion control and eat more often like all day! I eat and I lose, I do have to make choices like, what do I really want if the portion size is small and I make up for substance in foods I really like, learn to eat your veggies first and then the rest will fill you up... I have lost near 40 lbs since Feb.1 and I lose slow on purpose, did the fast track 12 years ago but it came back so this time I am not working so much to lose as to be "healthy"! I only walk my dog and do some light aerobics for exercise. So if I can do this so can you. I fell so much better and my health is normalizing, I can even tie my shoes now! Down 4 sizes in pants and it feels good.

seeking buddy who wants to lose 100 + pounds
Hi, well today I need a buddy, like I get started doing my light aerobics and then yesterday my foot hurt so bad I could not take it! so today I went to the drs and they told me to elevate foot for a week and take antibiotics, (do not even know what I stepped on to get such a bad infection but the good news is I am still watching my calories and will just have to adjust down while I am chair ridden... Hope this works out we will see on my next weigh in tomorrow am?
