Still to go: 74.2 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...

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?
