I am training......................... the rest of my life!
I will be turning 50 this year. I made a promise to myself late last year that I would be in the best shape of my life for my 50th birthday. I weighed in @ 243 lbs around November of 2011. My goal is to get below 200 & stay there. I've been active my whole life, but in 2008 I broke my left hip, and that lead to a total hip replacement in 2009. I got in shape before surgery & recovered fine from the procedure because of it. But then I got lazy and over indulged an in no time I was overweight.
My titanium hip is not an excuse as to not being active. I can do anything I used to do with it. I just need to be careful. Paying attention to my diet is easy for me because I like all food. I know how to eat sensibly & just need to focus on it. That's where Fatsecret really helped out. Since I found Fatsecret, my weight started coming off more consistently. Having a total diet & exercise journal is so helpful. And now that I have almost 5 months recorded, it so easy to see how changes affect me. I dont follow any specific diet. My main goal is my RDI & stay below 50 grams of fat. I just eat to live now, instead of living to eat. And I eat good food. I love to cook & eat but I just do it sensibly. My lady is Italian & cooks like no other. I pay attention to portions & I'm ok.
I'm not far from my goal & when I get there I will continue to use Fatsecret to monitor myself. I am totally in love with my best friend, soul mate, woman of my dreams. I want to be on this earth with her for a long time!
