Hi. I am a 67 years old and have been overweight since 1995. The closest I have gotten to my goal weight of 135 (and maybe lower) was in October of 2018 when I landed at 158. Due to health issues and lack of being able to "get back in the rhythm" I am back to about 185, but don't intend to stay there! Starting the 5% Fall Challenge 2020 is the beginning of the END of this weight!

I had my cataract surgery during the Summer Challenge, and the Prednisolone eye drops that I have had to use daily for the last 5+ weeks has raised my blood sugar. I am cutting carbs but it hasn't brought the blood sugar down where it needs to be. Another 10 days and I will be off of them and I am praying that my blood sugar will return to normal.

My Goals:
Since my weight gain, I am back in a pre-diabetic state and I plan to lose 5% of my weight this challenge


My Program:
Eating Plan: I will count calories, space my meals and snacks, and use Atkins/Keto, trying to keep my ratio of calories between fats, carbs, and protein to 10% or less carbs, 30% or so protein, and 60% or so healthy fats. I am more concerned about the carb percentage than the other two.
My exercise program will include weight training on my Total Gym, HIIT on the treadmill, stretching, dancing, and possibly yoga/tai chi, and Hip Hop Abs. I also have bands and a ball which I may use occasionally.



Personal Information:
Married 46 years to a wonderful man. We are Christians and my faith is an important part of my life. I would not be the person I am today without Jesus and I am eternally grateful to have been born into a Christian family in a country in which I am free to worship, have my Bible, and practice my faith. I am blessed to live in a country in which our laws are based on the Word of God! We have two grown children, 6 grands and a great-grand. Love to cook. Also sew, knit, crochet, cross stitch and do crafts. Read. Play piano, saxophone, and accordion. Write music, prose, and poetry. Had a very hard time when the kids left the nest. Took 13 years for me to get over it. Gained this weight when I got something called Lichen Planus (they didn't know at that time what caused it or how to treat it ) .Now I know that it was caused by an antibiotic called Cipro that destroyed all of my gut bacteria that I took for a bout of bronchitis and finished just weeks before the Lichen Planus started breakin


Other Information:
My true highest beginning weight was 227 in Feb of 2011. Somewhere I think there is a picture of me then. If I can find it, it will be my Before Picture. I did have a picture of myself eating an ice cream cone on vacation at about 220bs and my buttons on my blouse were about to pop. I hid that one from myself because it embarrassed me to look at it, even in private. My fasting blood sugar was 116 at my highest weight. Lost 20 pounds in 4 months by just watching my portions but my blood sugar didn't change. Went on Atkins and in 3 days my fasting blood sugar was 98. I stayed on it from June 1 2011 until mid October lost 37 more for a total of 57 pounds lost but then ate a piece of birthday cake (though I didn't crave a thing) and fell way off the wagon.. Got off Atkins and gained 20 back. I have been rocking back and forth with those 20 or 30 pounds for years and now it has to stop! UPDATE! IT DID STOP! I lost 42 pounds from Jan 1 2017 to the end of Sept. and my A1C dropped. However I g

    Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there's no actual magic in it but when you
    know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you -- you can make
    things happen almost like magic. - Laini Taylor

    Another 5% challenge is coming to an end tomorrow when we do our final Saturday weigh-in and I hope you have been successful in reaching your goals. But, if not, keep living your healthy lifestyle with good nutrition and exercise and you will eventually see results as your body makes its adjustments. Remember about the in-between challenge that starts tomorrow on Saturday. It is a good way to stay on track and maybe even lose another pound or two. Also, I hope to see you in a couple of weeks next time at the Fall 5% Challenge with the Rowdy Rebels team.

    Best wishes & stay well as we continue our journey.

    Your SparkFriend,
    ~~~Marilyn
