January 1, 2020 - There were big changes in my life last year but unfortunately my weight was not one of them. I retired from working in July and became more sedentary. I started watching my Grandson on a regular basis (3 to 4 days a week). Since I couldn't go to the gym in the morning on those days I quit going altogether and then quit completely. I'm going to commit myself to doing a 15 minute Youtube exercise video at least 5 days a week. I'm going to slowly increase the time as I feel better

9/1/2019 - Changed my name to GmaQueenBee from JocyMc1956.

January 4, 2019 - Time to update this page. 2019 is going to be the year I weigh in the 140's. The closest I've come in the last couple of years is 162. I keep faltering and restarting but at least I restart. I've joined Planet Fitness and instead of dropping in on my home from work I go in the morning. That seems to be working better. I don't have all day to think up excuses not to go.

____________

I have been on this weight loss journey for many years. Even though I sometimes falter, I always come back to my committment to weigh in the 140's and be a healthy, happy, energetic person. 2016 will be the year that I make it!

2017 for sure!

August 10, 2017 - Starting the Keto way of eating. It's totally different than diets that I have been on before. I can eat the fats and leave the fruits without any guilt.


Member Since: 1/4/2015

My Goals:
To lose weight, and belly fat. I also want to tone up and get back my muscle.


My Program:
1/1/2020 - Today I'm starting a Whole30 to reset my body and then I'm going back to Low Carb eating. I could call it Keto but I'm going to keep it at around 50 g of carbs.

1/4/2019 - I'm still eating Keto but I've been pretty lazy about it. Since I started my chance of heart attack has gone down to 4% so there are some health benefits to this way of eating. I have had to increase my carbs to include more kidney friendly foods, on my doctors advice. He didn't tell me to stop, just to eat more fruits, veggies and less protein.

Beginning 8/10/2017 I'll be following the Keto diet.



Personal Information:
I'm 63, retired, mother of 1 daughter, and doting grandmother to 1 grandson. I have 3 elderly cats and 3 beehives. I enjoy gardening, reading, and playing games on the computer.
