Hey Jodi,
Actually I gained a bit back, about 12 lb and am working of getting that off. I am in a challenge on the challenge board and that helps a lot. I use ****** and I'm also a spinning instructor so I exercise a lot. right now I am actually making a transition to add carbs back in so I'm climing the carb ladder. I am also read the BFFM ebook. Because I do such intense exercise, I need to be more in a moderate carb state.

Challenges are great way to stay motivated. Check out the challenge board.

Thanks guys. It's a never ending struggle though. One thing that I've learned is that you never ARRIVE. It's a steady journey. Strategy and planning ahead are a real key to success.

At age 55 it has become abundantly clear to me that exercise needs to be a priority in my life.

About 6 years ago I was assessed by a Physical Therapist for back problems. He did a total spine evaluation and told me that if I did not do something about my physical condition now I would have permanent damage. He put me on a cardio and strength training program in his rehab facility. After physical therapy was over I knew that I needed to continue to exercise but I knew trying to do it on my own has never worked for very long. That’s when I decided that joining a gym would be the best thing I could do for myself.

I started out slowly. When I first began I could only do 3 min. on the elliptical trainer. Even though I was not losing weight at first I gained a lot of strength and endurance. I also overcame several obstacles. I had arthroscopic knee surgery and was facing a knee replacement if I did not lose weight. I have rotator cuff problems, hip and back problems all of which tremendously improved. I was also having hormonal issues and was told that it would be very difficult for me to lose weight during menopause.

I was determined, however, and did not give up. I adopted a healthy eating plan and stuck with my program. I have now lost over 100 pounds and have maintained that weight loss for a year and a half.

My latest fitness accomplishment is that I have become a Les Mills International certified RPM instructor and teach spinning classes. This is a HUGE accomplishment for me.

For me fitness is not about having the perfect body. It’s about adopting an overall healthy lifestyle. I feel like exercise has given me a new lease on life.

Linda
Amazing, congratulations on your achievement do you not have any before and after photos?
