I was losing weight until I quit smoking (back in 2007). I put it all and an extra 24 pounds on. I need to re-lose those, plus the 10 I hadn't lost yet to get to my goal.

I gave up all soda in 2013 and am working on going Whole Food Plant Based.

2020 Update: Backslid up to the mid 150s. Time to get back on the horse and eat on plan. Need to start tracking again to be accountable.

Update 2019: Down to the low-mid 140s, bouncing a bit. Still doing the 5% Challenges since the first one worked so well. I just need to get back on track and actually DO what I say I'm going to do.

Update 2018: Joined my first 5% Challenge to see if I can get these last 10 pounds off,

Update 2017: Have succeeded in going WFPB with very few slips. Down to the low 150s, but need to lose a bit more as I am only 5' 4.5" tall.

My Goals:
I want go get down to 130 pounds.
I want to learn how to meal plan - I get by so far by not keeping stuff I shouldn't eat in the house, but I don't always eat the best proportions of grains and beans to veggies and fruits - and nuts can be dangerous.


My Program:
Have been eating Whole Food Plant Based 99% of the time. I have been reading about Intermittent Fasting and tried the eRTF (early Time Restricted Feeding) version where I ingest all my calories between 5:30 AM and noon. That stopped being workable when work got too busy to eat all 3 meals at work, so I am going to try doing the other end - no eating before noon and done by 6 pm.



Personal Information:
I am a voracious reader who enjoys Ren Faires and science fiction / fantasy conventions. I have 2 long-haired cats and one son who is ASD.

    It's funny - I totally believed Peter Pan and refuse to grow up!

    I am not afraid of dying as much as dying in a lot of pain. Same with old age - if it happens, so be it. If not, I want to be able to say that I enjoyed life and living.

    My mother said it best, "old age is not for sissies."

    Hi Kerry. Yes I had already been doing yoga for a couple of years before I did that particular challenge. But my practice had dwindled and my eating habits were all over the place, so it was a really good way to get back on track. I liked the 40 day aspect of it because it was so much less daunting than "forever"!

    Isn't it amazing that now, all of a sudden, this 95 year old with thin skin is clotting when he tears skin?!

    He's only on low-dose aspirin (heart doctor) so I am truly amazed.

    Huggers,

    My sister said the same thing about a curtain - she didn't explain it as well as you.

    I will see what he says. I promise, I wouldn't peek on a dare, lol. Peeking at someone on "the throne" is not my idea of a good time, lol.

    Thanks! I appreciate your input.
