performance: gaining 0.2 lb a week

I'm 55, from central Maryland.
5'10" and fluctuate between 154-157 lbs
I'm currently at 12% body fat. I believe I have achieved 10%, and would one time like to achieve 8%
Married for 35 years have 3 children, 2 girls, one boy. Two years ago I lost my son (26 years old at time, former USMC who toured Iraq) due to PTSD and an overdose while self-medicating.
I have 11 grandchildren.
At my heaviest I was 191. I got into a 16 week weight loss competition with a group of about twelve people. It was evident by around 6 weeks no one but me was serious. By the end of the competition all had dropped out but me. I really liked both the weight loss and the health gains that I had achieved and continued. At my lowest I got down to approx 143 lbs, all through portion control-no exercise.
It was then that I had been noticing people's concern for my health. I looked so guantly that some thought I was wasting due to cancer. I finally, realistically looked in the mirror and saw what they saw, ergo the exercise phase. Needless to say I didn't pursue this properly either. I never warmed up or cooled down all while achieving unbelievable numbers for a man in his 20s, let alone 50s. I completely tore off my supraspinatus and had it reattached. Needless to say it will never be right in spite of all the PT and exercise I have done to overcome the malady. No one could know unless I had to do something overhead. My present journey is one of health and physique. I NEVER exercise without warming up or cooling down-NEVER. Every workout is an internal competition with myself. I love to compete.
Shut you mouth, put the fork done, push away from the table, and keep your body in motion, or roll over and go to Dunkin Donuts and indulge. Either way, stop tourturing your self-only you can want it. No one can want it for you.

My name ia Laura
Good for you, just remember as we age we gain a lot easier than we take off. That's why I changed my attitude about my eating habits. It's worked great for me. God bless.

Yes, losing 2lbs a week is very doable, and can be done healthily. Do it!
