I've Lost It ...at 50...

I am so excited. I have oficially lost 50 pounds today (yes, I weigh every day). It is amazing how much your weight can fluctuate in a few days, or at different times of the day, for that matter. But as of this morning I reached 50 pounds.

This is the most recent picture taken last week before our Friday night date . I have continued my exercise regime, and healthy eating. I do feel so much better. I was able to cut my lousy cholesterol from 134 to 60. I was a heart attack or stroke waiting to happen. I have more energy, and respond to stress a little better. The very besty part is that I can go into any store and buy "regular" sized clothes.

Now I just have to continue the exercise and tighten up and add muscle tone. ..easier said than done when you are 50.

But I will press on.

That is so wonderful Sheila!!! Don't you give up! I'm 53 and I've lost 23 lbs since Jan. 17, 2011. I have another 20 to go but I feel great and my health has greatly improved. You look super in that picture. What a difference from your profile picture. You should be proud!

Congratulations !! You look great!
Would love to say I have lost a few - but not gonna happen. Have not lost any, but have not gained any either so guess that is a good thing.
Have a fun and safe holiday weekend.

Congrats - I am so proud of you!! You are looking great, too. I am re-booting my health regimen. I got to within 10 lbs of my (weight watcher) goal, and then voila... it was like my willpower disappeared for 3 weeks. But I'm back at it again, on a little different program (but one I've done before - think I just needed a little change). I'll be 51 in late July... we can do this!! -Tammy
