Retirement: before and after

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Retired friends, please forgive/ignore the pic—I want to show my Weight Loss Support Group and we can’t post pics there. Please don’t make fun of me—this is hard to share.

On the left, 3 years ago, I was ecstatically happy. I had just finished a lesson for the County Superintendent and my P, and retirement was less than a month away.

On the right, I was at a play 2 weeks ago. I was also pretty darned happy, enjoying an outing with my DD—and 36 lbs lighter.

Weight Loss Support friends, we can do this!

Way to go, Amiga! You look fabulous!

I recently lost 30 pounds, and I look (and feel) like a whole different person! I do not have before pics (wonder why?), but even my driver’s license pic from 18 months ago is unrecognizable as me today. I think the stress of dealing with my dying husband showed all over my face, as well as my being overweight.

I am at a great place as far as weight right now...my goal for the next couple of months is to get back to doing yoga. I do aquafit three days a week and walk every day. As soon as the museum closes for the season in December, I am going to get a trainer and start on some strength building. Taking a balance class as well, starting tomorrow.

Here’s to a healthy retirement!

Good for you! You not only lost pounds, but you lost years in your face.

I wish I could get motivated to exercise. I have pain in my knees and at the top, sides of both legs. ARGHHHH!

Wow Amiga, you look mah-ve-lous!! Thank you for sharing your pictures with us....I am so inspired by you and your determination to maintain your weight loss! I hope to be as good as you someday!

I've lost and regained so many times....but now that I"m retired, it's a bit easier to eat better and exercise more and I"ve lost about 20 lbs but I'm not yet where I"d like to be. I like the saying...."Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels."

You should be very proud of yourself!

Wow- you are inspiring (and believe me, I need some inspiration in this area to get going!). It really shows what a lot of hard work can do.

You look great! I get inspired by seeing your pictures. I need to get walking now that it isnít 100+ degrees out. I love my active aging class, too. Thanks for the boost.
