Reviving thread: How are all the 50+ peeps doing???


thanx for the "revival" - I feel like singing !!!

i was sleeved one month shy of turning 58 years old, 7+ years later, i am 65 years young!!

used to be 5'3" - now i stand 6' feet TALL!! (still cute as a button!!)

inherited kidney problems from dad - about 15 years ago🙁, good looks from mom LOL

Dialysis started one year ago -no prob - no pain - sleep fine, "hooked" up in bed

at night for 10 hours.(hmmmm, sounds kinky😉) dialysis then does its stuff and i'm good to go.

(small catheter in stomach / attached 30' hose) i can reach/walk to the bathroom - phew!!!

(hmmmm - probably TMI, but when you are in renal failure - your kidney functions -

urinating - decrease/STOP) buttt unfortunately you still feel that need/urge to go to the BR (you try, but will be unsuccessful)

i eat like a "normal" person, Moderation used to be a big problem. all good now - watch

how and what i eat, i no longer keep track of my day with MFP - but i am very mindful of

what/how much i eat & drink, calories etc.

weigh daily after i shower- weight fluctuates 5+ lbs here and there GOAL - was 130 - now 135-140. NEVER have gone over that dreadful # of 140.

that's my story and i'm stickin' to it. 🤣 (film at 11:00, coming to a theater near you!!)

hugggggs to all my BP family

Hit goal last month and figuring out maintenance right now. 1 year anniversary is Tuesday. I haven’t felt this good or active in awhile.

I’ll be 59 this fall and I will continue to live an active and healthy lifestyle for the rest of my life. Being overweight was a lot of work, I much prefer this.

edited because I thought I was a year younger than I am!

well your 158 according to your chart you should be happy at your weight even if you don't lose anymore you use to be 230 before...

I AM HAPPY where I'm at. I just get a little disappointed at myself that I'm not at 140 yet. I will get there someday but for right now my Husband and daughter is so proud of me. I'm truly grateful that I had it done. Thank you
