This is my January 2015 update. after about two years on this journey to be healthy I'm 60 pounds lighter and in better shape. I still have a long ways to go on the fitness and it will be a lifetime to keep that fitness and weight. I used have chronic pain and what a difference!!

This journey has changed my life in so many positive ways. It's not just a weight loss journey but one to face all your demons and in the end be a more positive person feeling good about yourself and your world.

I love to cook all kinds of natural foods and delve into many cuisines. I'm a leftover health food nut from the 70's who has always loved exploring cusines from all over the globe. There are all sorts of interesting foods to try. I've been busy exploring vegetarian dishes from many parts of the world, I've discovered some new favorites and ingredients that are new to me.

I work full time as a customer service rep for a mutual fund company, a mentally exhausting desk job. Not a dream job but it pays the bills and has terrific benefits.

I am currently single 65 yo with 9 grandchildren, 1 great granddaughter, and another grandson due in June. I spend alot of time at grandkids sports events and in the summer attending mud runs as one daughter and her husband race and fishing for catfish with another son-in-law.

I'm slowly remodeling my house and most of the year work on my yard and gardens, one of these days I'll get both so I'm happy with them. It's part of my journey to feel good about my life. I'm a professional longarm quilt artist but my little business (used to be fulltime) is on hold while I concentrate on my remodel. Hoping to get back to my passion my the end of the year.

I live with a chatty and very onery Quaker Parrot and a little girl boston terrier mix born 3-31-13. She's a very active character-wish I had her almost never ending energy.

Really Deb, strength exercise helps... add some besides your cardio. Per doc's insistence it has really helped. Not a childhood injury, was in my 30"s. The doc gave me a 5% chance of ever being able to walk on both legs and if I could a 10 year time frame to have a knee replacement that was in 1986!!! So far I've beat all the odds. I want to continue to do so.

Welcome, this site has helped me tremendously over the past couple years. I'm now on maintenance and still here most every day. Last thing I want to do is gain weight back.

GAINING Weight??
FS calorie RDI's are high. Mine were over 1700 on FS. I set mine @ 1200 but mostly ate at 1000 average over a week. Even on maintenance there is no way I can eat that much and not gain weight back.
