Default 300+ and getting fit after 40 #287

This group is for those dealing with the challenges of being fit when you have a significant amount of weight to lose which becomes harder after age 40. If you're an old or new friend and not over 40 and feel this is the place to post, jump right in!

Debbie -- Thank you so much for starting the thread. I had to run the dog to radiation treatment too early this morning, and never made it here.

I'm hoping things at work calm down soon... everything's still really busy!!

Wow, Heather, I hope things quiet down for you.

I'm with you, ladies, let's make June a great month. For me, my June/July should be excellent times to work on establishing or solidifying habits. I have a week and a half left of my summer course, and then the rest ofthe summer is all mine.

Must get back to grading now, though... have a great Thursday, all.

Angela

I knew subway was loaded with sodium but 900mg for a sandwich without any dressings..WOW. No wonder i slept through the night without getting up to use the bathroom. I will increase water today to flush it out. I really enjoyed my sandwich to be honest. It was a nice change of pace.

Going out for a walk before it gets to hot.

Good morning! It must be that time of year again, as soon as one set of company leaves another is coming in the door. Makes it hard on my eating plan. So far so good though. The scale is up a bit but it could be worse! I think maybe the visits are over for a few days anyway. LOL!

I hope you are all having a great weekend. Ruth
PS: I forgot...today is our 60th wedding anniverssary, how about that? Never thought I would live this long must less be married most of my life. LOL!

Ruth - it's not all the company for me - it's all the extra social stuff that challenges me. Last night the choices could have been better at a graduation party. Tonight is DH's high school reunion - I have a plan now I just need to execute it. Tomorrow is a big family event here - one day at a time.

Exercise is great but doesn't keep the scale going in the right direction when I make poor food choices - need to remind myself it's the total wellness package! Wellness is what I'm after.

Stay strong!

We ate at a chinesse seafood place last night. I was careful with what I put on my plate. ITs just that I ate two plates of it thats was the problem.
I should be pop the rest of the weekend. We are just staying home and relaxing.

Good Sunday morning friends! Beautiful day to go and worship, but boy is it hot here, and dry!

Carol, Every day living challenges me as far as food is concerned. LOL!

I should be yelling help right now. My thirteen year old Granddaughter wants to come and spend a week with me......HELP....a teenager! I haven't had one of those around for years. LOL! I am sure I will enjoy every moment of her visit.

Well, I do hope today will be an OP day for all of you. (Me too) Ruth

Happy Anniversary ruth and hubby. 60yrs is a long time. We will celebrate 30 this year. I hope he takes you out someplace special.

I did a bad job yesterday where food was concerned. I skipped breakfast to go to yardsales with a friend. I knew better than to do that. It set me up for being hungry all afternoon and nothing seemed to hit the spot. OH well today is a new day and back OP.

It so hot and dry here also. It would be nice to have a slow steady rain for a few hours. Guess we are going from one extreme to another.

Hope everyone has a great day and stays cool.
