I acted on the advice given, and cut back on the chick peas and oatmeal. Eventually, I did join a different gym, as well. One with more options (swimming, yoga, other classes).
But the absolute most important thing that I did was that I stuck with it, hung in there, did not give up. And for me, that is remarkable as I have always given up in the past.
Not this time. I just kept on trucking. I am still fighting for every pound lost, but I AM fighting and making progress. I am now down to 154 pounds, and am hoping to lose 18 more pounds over the next 6 months. My goal is to hit 136 on, or before, my 50th birthday in June.
AND...I just had a recheck on my cholesterol...4 months ago my total cholesterol was 205 and as of two days ago I have lowered it to 152! (Two years ago it was 289 on an ovo-lact vegetarian diet.)
I am insufferably pleased with myself.
