Starting again
Hi, I'm Booie. Just getting started with FitDay and starting again to lose weight and improve my health. I want to be able to do recreational road cycling.

I lost 80 lbs many years ago doing low fat, calorie restricted diet with 4-5 x a week cardio and weights. Over the years the weight crept back on.

Three years ago I lost 50 pounds on low carb. I have put back much of that weight.

So I am trying to lose again but do it in a way that I can maintain long term. I'm older, I have a more sedentary job and I'm past menopause. I expect this time to be even more challenging than in the past.

I thank you all in advance for the support and wish everyone success with their personal weight loss goals.
