2008 @ 268# to 2013 @ 233#
219 lbs

My Goal:
To focus on loosing weight in 10 lb increments as this appears to be where my body has drawn the lines in the sand... it wants to stabilize before loosing more at every 10 lbs ... with a final weight of 150 ( will re=evaluate then)

Juice , green smoothies and lots of raw foods. Limiting most starches

increase water consumption

regularly exercise ... either being more physical in general and/or planned "exercise".

Naturally control/heal diabetes

get thyroid & other autoimmune issues under control, or get healthy despite it... lol

About me:
I am 51 yrs old. Married & have three kids (19, 21 & 34). And my beautiful grandbaby. I started my first diet in 5th grade and other than a few years, I have been overweight to one degree or another and have tried too many diets to count ruining my thyroid in the process but was always very physical & active till a move 10 yrs ago. I am concentrating on healthy foods and cutting out processed as much as is realistic for my life. Trying for 80% or more raw foods I want to do the things I used to do... be active ... ride & train my pasture ornaments, hike & find a workout buddy again some day I Live on mini farm. I do not generally believe in western medicine practices that only treat but do not cure.

Diets I like:
mostly raw, no starches, with some animal proteins seems to be best for my blood sugars and my weight.

Workout of choice:
anything I can get myself to do ( zumba, turbo jam, hip hop abs, belly dancing, yoga DVDs) ... ride my recumbent bike as my fail safe.

My plan:
Eat at least 80% raw. juicing, green smoothies, salads, fruits & veggies. Try to greatly reduce grains even more than I already have ... yes, even whole grains. My blood sugars are greatly effected by grains & beans/legumes.

I need the most help with:
working out on weekends too, choosing well when eating "out"

Additional Info:
I want to feel better, look better & have more energy and control diabetes or cure it would be even better.
