SWAMI tweaked Explorer Super Taster from Illinois

Age: 67
On August 1, 2008 I weighed 140 lbs.  On August 1, 2009 I weigh 120 lbs.  I am 5’2” tall.  

In March 2008 I twisted my knee bad.  It swelled up from my ankle to my hip.  I was not back to my full exercise routine until August and even then I had to watch out so I didn’t put too much pressure on my knee.  Since my exercising routine was reduced and my sitting time increased, munching increased.  I had gained 20 pounds.  

I decided to track my eating habits.  I also looked up what was the ideal amount of calories to commune for a person of my age, weight frame and exercise level to maintain 120 lbs.  What I discovered was that I had gotten sloppy with my portion sizes and serving amounts.  So I vowed to only have 1 serving of any item at a sitting.  I tracked everything I ate and the calories associated with it for 3 months.  Then I felt confident that I could maintain that eating style without the bothersome tracking.

Of course, needless to say, sticking to my Swami diet helped.
