Start Weight:(05 Dec 16) 237.0 lb
Current Weight:(27 Mar 17) 192.5 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: Sherillynn's own diet
performance: losing 10.5 lb a week

I am 50 years old and have recently restarted after falling off the wagon.

I am feeling the effects of being overweight and I really want to reduce the stress on my joints as well as prevent high blood pressure and diabetes, which I am sure are right around the corner if I continue on an upward trend.

I just changed careers and instead of the high stress of being an Emergency Department RN, I am starting an inland shrimp farm in NE Iowa. I like having more control over my hours and my life. Hopefully, this will also help keep me motivated to drop the weight.

Blessings to all as they try to lose weight too!

Come and walk with us
Please join us for our next 300 mile challenge.

We dropped a lot of weight during our first 300 miles. What a success! This challenge breaks down to walking 3 miles daily. This is an achievable goal as we greet the spring time weather.

Not a diet
Very true. That is for sure the reason I have failed so many times. Currently, my portion sizes are about a third of what they were. I need to stay like that.

Phil is right. Learn to make better choices. Count your calories. Eat healthy and exercise.

What do people do who have chronic issues with pain
Water aerobics has been a great option for me with my back issues. Walking is also good. Your MD should be able to suggest things that are appropriate for your condition. If not, have him prescribe a few visits to a PT and they should be able to help.
