My Goal:



My Weight Chart:
Weight Chart


Lost 11 lbs in 11 weeks and going to set a new goal for more once my 127 goal weight is stabilized. 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.

One goal is to increase raw foods to 80% of diet, currently it's probably closer to 60. Also do some kind of exercise every day, even if it's just a walk.

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

Progress not Perfection group:

Core Rule Week 11 (ending Sept 26)
CR 1: Do not eat while preparing food
CR 2: Do not eat after 7:30pm & bed by 10
CR 3: Use portion control with protein items. Even though cheat system says unlimited garbanzos, these pack the weight on me.
CR 4: Limit fruit to 2 servings per day
CR 5: Take a breath or two in between swallows; put down fork.

Keeping this going for week 12 (ending Oct 2)
My brutal week will be one week behind everyone else's. This coming week will be atypical (TOM, houseguest, eating out more, road trip, not that it's an excuse, but I won't have as much time to exercise)

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


About me:
I'm 51 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:
Currently trying the Harcombe method. Her book is called "Why do I overeat if all I want is to be slim". I eat a lot of animal fat and protein and veggies, a bit of fruit. Mostly one of cutting out sugar, coffee (caffeinated), all grains incl. wheat, corn, rice, etc., all starch and most fruits. I have already been off dairy for a few years. I got inspired by a book called "The 7 Principles of Fat Burning." Highly recommend.


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


My plan:
For 2013: at the minimum, walk 1 mile a day, stop eating after 7:30 pm, stop eating artificially sweetened food, eat more raw foods. Follow Core Rules in LFG community challenge.


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.
