Proof of Weight Maintenance and active movement March 2019

I'm busy living life. Head over to my two Instagram accounts for daily videos, and more frequent photos!!! Links on right side bar of this blog.

Soap BOX: Hobbies are a huge part of my weight maintenance 20 tools. Hobbies and activities that keep my butt off a chair, my body in motion, and my brain engaged in something other than sedentary TV, butt parked crafting , with exception rule Survivor and photo editing. LOL. I work in the gray zone.

Movement, as I age, huge part of weight maintenance. Hiking, Photography, Gardening, Walking, Beach combing, Sea glass collecting, Pokemon (don't make fun, I walk and hatch those poke eggs, YO!), limited kayaking (dang that positional vertigo!!). All interests that keep me on the move.

Photo editing, not so much, but a great night time activity to keep my brain engaged and listen to music or podcasts.

Here are the deets. Not losing, very much maintaining and chill-axing quite a bit. Vacation, visits with family, good coffee. Proof of weight maintenance and all around hobby awesomeness.

Oh, ooooooh!  And a super fun phone call with Dr. Barbara Berkeley, MD- buy her book, apply those Weight Maintenance rules to your own n=1. Do it, only if you like your revenge clothes and lower inflammatory foods. Listen, you may have to change your weight maintenance food plan compared to your loss plan. So hold some space for weight maintenance ideas, then keep finding your own root causes.  Link to her website here

Keeping low carb simple: Ground beef, Italian spices, salt, onion, and Brussels sprouts

Wild flowers on my walk. Great bloom in So. Cal due to the rains.

Back to the tide pools. Yes!

Mor walking around the swamp. Weight maintenance means daily activity. 

Listen Nosepass, get your nose out of my Pokemon double raid. LOL

Kate, the cats are well and catching all the sun cat naps as possible. 

I'll get updated photos soon. Photographer is coming home from college spring break soon!


  1. Love this, Karen! I so agree with you about movement as we age to keep the weight off. I'm 48 and now weigh the least I have weighed since college (when I was a few pounds thinner). I move every day (mostly walking with some weight lifting). I learned from you that is about movement more than going to the gym and doing crazy amounts of exercise. That was something I did in my past, but, as you know, my health does not allow that anymore (and I don't think I would go back to that). Now I walk, walk, walk. I shoot for 12,000-15,000 steps about five or six times a week. And the beauty of this is that I can continue to walk (and maybe walk more) as I age. (Now I fit it into my work day, which takes some effort; the days I don't work it is so much easier to get my steps in).

    And keeping my food simple! Yes, to this. I eat a lot of meat, veggies, some fruit, and some nuts.

    And lastly daily weighing to catch my gains. I saw a small uptick recently in my weight, and I decided to switch things up with my food to reverse this trend (by eating a little more fat and a little less protein--I suspect that too much protein doesn't serve me well though I still eat plenty).

    I know so many women who are resigned to gain weight as they age. This does not have to be the case! It takes some work and a lot of commitment, but it is possible to keep weight off.

  2. I love your maintenance plan! I agree with it 100%! Keep moving!!! I want to start back up with my camera. I miss photography!!!

  3. Pleased all is going well.
    Love all your photographs.

    All the best Jan
