New, but here is my starting points
Age: 63

Weight 124
Height 5'2"

Neck 13"
biceps 10.5"
chest 38"
waist 33"
hips 37"
thighs 20"
calves 13"

Here are some photos for my starting pointing today, February 13, 2016. These revealed more to me than I knew. I did lose weight, but really, have some problem areas. I am so anxious, but just one day at a time, and think this post will help me progress to my goals.

Also logged breakfast so far at http://www.myfitnesspal.com/food/diary . All are welcome to take a look at what I am eating at this point as well.

You look awesome - we should all hope to look so good at 63! If you aren't doing any strength training yet, there is no better time than the present to get started! Not only will it help you change the shape and composition of your body, but it will help you stay strong and independent well into your 70s and 80s. it is so empowering...

I truly believe that Anitra, I just never had the willingness for one thing, to start lifting, the right way. You gals are so encouraging, I've seen many with amazing changes. I hope other ladies my age will see that it isn't that hard to change a few things, to start feeling stronger, sleep better, and I just plan to do better with adding in some real strength-training.

I just did a new exercise with my little, 5 lb dumbells, just to "test the water" as I have to listen to that rotater cuff especially. Here's a pic of the exercise I am doing for now, until I can get to the gym. Feedback/suggestions welcome. I'm doing my regular stretch band stuff as well which is very easy. That's how I know I can move up to more resistance/weightswink

These photos are so ugly, lol!! But that's all the more encouragement to work hard, lolwink

RE: New, but here is my starting points
I wanted to add the rest of the pics but only allowed 5 so that's ok, I just wanted you to get an idea of what I am doing now, with the stretch bands, and the dum-bells. I did the dumbells with no pain or discomfort to my cuff, so will go ahead on those. the physical therapist said I could do anything I like, but to just listen to my body. I am really careful because I'll do anything to avoid further injurieswink Thanks for your support Anitrahappy I feel so good about all of thishappy Almost time for lunch so catch you laterwink denise
