The beginning of the journey...
May 2006..notice the cane...In 1998, I was 54 kilos, but the deteriorating right hip from a motorcycle accident in college contributed to the weight gain, though in this photo I was not at my peak weight, that was the fall of 2004 the year my daughter left for college. Did regular exercise & weight training so in this pic, about 63 kilos...almost 139 pounds on a sub 5 foot frame. Officially, I say I started at a high of 64 kilos, the only time I carried more weight was in 1986 when I was pregnant.
January 2009...the journey continues
About 54 kilos...119 pounds....post August 2006 surgery, with the pain gone, I was able to increase the exercise, coupled with a revamped nutrition plan, the 20 pounds came off in the spring of 2007. Two years later, the excess weight has not returned and I have gained muscle & flexibility. Check the Meanderings page as I recount what I did and continue to do to travel the path from flab to fit.
October 2010 The maintenance challenge
A few bumps along the road this past year...my mother passed away in February at 91. Coffee and sugar eased the stress but the scale crept up. Back home again in Bangkok and refocusing.
Maintenance continues...January 17, 2012
Keeping life in balance is key...play some, work some, love some. Creating a healthier lifestyle means not really having to think about weight to much...nourish yourself at the cellular level...green smoothies and bone broths.
