This is blue6433 here promising myself to get healthy and lose 50lbs - one pound at a time - next year. Not only for better appearance, but for becoming more healthy.
I am in my early 50's now and realize that my body won't stand up to excess weight the older I get. Muscle is definitely a "use it or lose it" as I have seen my muscular legs change to jiggly tissue (and not only my legs)!!!!
Questions for you all...how long did it take for you to determine what exercise routine you liked and would stick to? What do you do for exercise and how long and often?? Was this the routine you started out with or have you gradually worked up to this?
After the holidays I plan on blogging here at least once a week. Would love to have others join me and celebrate your progress!! Or just to say hi and compare notes.
Hello all, I am new to this "blog" stuff, but very familiar with worrying about my weight. As a younger woman, I could maintain my weight much easier than after "surgical" menopause (total hysterectomy w/oopherectomy 5 years ago). I am 5'5" and weigh in at 230...NEED to lose some weight!! I would be fantastic if I could lose 50 lbs.
I would like to find someone that I could blog with say 2 to 3 times per week and compare our progress and give each other ideas.
Let me know if any one of you would be interested...????
