I am a baby boomer who has finally gotten fed up with being obese, and have developed a plan that works for me to lose the weight I have carried most of my adult life. My husband finally has health insurance, so I am losing weight so I can schedule my knee replacement surgery to fix the knee osteoarthitis in June 2013. I just hit the less than 100 lbs to lose mark, so that is so exciting for me! I've started eating heathier and swimming and on my own I have lost 50 lbs so far, and am very proud of my success!! I am married with two grown daughters who support me in my quest The picture on the left was taken at my eldest daughter's wedding. My hobbies are reading, swimming, antiques, and playing bridge.

Lose 10 lbs February
Lose 10 lbs March
Lose 10 lbs April
Lose 10 lbs May

If I meet these goals I will be 100 lbs down and my mom will give me a $100 reward!!

My Goals:
My main goal is to become healthier. ( I see as I grow older the list of maladies that can befall overweight people) I want my outside body to match the inside happy person that I am. I want to be able to become more active. I want to lose lots of weight before my upcoming knee replacement surgery.

My Program:
I follow a low fat diet that includes many small meals spread throughout the day. Swimming is my exercise of choice...try to go every other day and swim 60 minutes of laps. I invested in a scale that measures by .2 lb increments, which encourages me. My emphasis is on practicing portion control, not excluding foods I like. My weakness is desserts.

Personal Information:
My name is Cyndia and I am originally from a a suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I have lived in Maryland for almost 30 years now. I have two grown daughters of whom I am very proud.
