I'm 5'3" and pretty muscular and broad shouldered with a wrist width that would indicate at least medium boned. I'm in Rockin Bod, Christian 50+ glals, inspiring and perspiring, & was in Christian Women Unite! Recently joined Progress not Perfection, the most accountable and active team I've seen.

Strength goals: To be able to do a pull-up, and cross the monkey bars on a playground.

Progress not Perfection group:
(see group for "stages" definitions listed above)

Starting Weight for "Lead, Follow or Get Out of they Way Challenge": 139

Evaluation: there are some ups and downs, it's not a steady thing. Exercise and weight loss do not always correlate. Eating 100% clean and weight loss do not always correlate. Starving oneself and weight loss do not always correlate. Eating more butter, coconut oil, red meat = weight loss.
Once I met my goal I tried the Harcombe method and dropped another pound (although it's back - might be water). Ate no fruit for a week on top of an already low-carb diet. Fat and protein do not trigger the fat-storing insulin response. Leafy veg carbs don't either. Will add fruit back in but limited and separate. I stopped counting calories.

CR1: No food after 7:30pm
CR2: Put fork down and breathe between bites
CR3: 1 fruit serving max per day

Continue exercise regimen of cycling to work (when it's not a downpour), or stationary bike (when it is), mountain biking, - combined 50 miles per week, walking, pushups
200 Struggling the most with not eating after 7:30pm. It becomes a comfort thing.

For Brutal week: nothing that is processed, packaged or sugary.

Bronze Stage Goal: Ride bike toward Seattle, take train back (~90 miles).

About me:
I'm 53 and my body is a bit ravaged from injuries, but I still get out. I currently hold the title of "Riverboarding World Champion in Freestyle Surfing" for what it's worth. I want to be thinner to be more attractive and lighter/meaner in sports. Energy is better thanks to my naturopath and the corrected thyroid dosage.

Diets I like:
Simply don't eat.

Workout of choice:
Riverboarding in 42 degree water, mountain biking, road biking, body boarding, snowboarding, walking

My plan:
For 2015: at the minimum, walk 1 mile a day, stop eating after 7:30 pm, stop eating artificially sweetened food, eat more raw foods.

I need the most help with:
Eating after dinner. FREE FOOD that's unhealthy. Not wanting food to "go to waste".

Additional Info:
It's amazing to lose weight and feel light, so much easier to climb hills, nice to fit into clothing / bathing suit that looks good.
