Back to fit day
I used fitday and my own determination to lose about 50 some pounds 16 years ago. I gradually gained a large share of the weight back then had surgery and lost about 45 to 50 pounds. Now I have gained back at least 40 of that.

Also the doctor is very concerned about my high blood pressure. So it is back to fitday. I have been checking my diet carefully and have increased my daily walk by about 4 blocks a day.

My goal now is to get off the yo-yo, lose about 30 pounds and keep it off.

I am age 74, 5'7" weigh 193 down from 198 after two weeks back on fitday and keeping track of what I eat. I am taking medications for the blood pressure. Those are helping but my goal is to lose the weight and try to reduce the now required meds.

Down another half pound today. That makes a 5 pound loss from 198 to 193. Hopefully I can keep it up and be about 180 by Christmas.

16 years ago, wow I had no idea fitday was around that long. Good for you for the tracking and walking. That's great. Join the motivational thread if you like :) newcomers welcome.

Thanks. My eventual goal is 160 which is what the bmi charts say I should weigh. but for now I will be glad to get down just another 15 pounds.
