Hi, I'm really new at this whole thing. I've tried diets soooo many times, never too succeed. But you see, I have a husband that I adore, a daughter that is also my best friend and 3 wonderful grandkids that spend the weekends with me. So I have so many reasons to do this right, this time around. I'm at my heaviest since the mid 90's, that scares me. I've always been a big girl since I got married the first time way back in the 80's, gosh that was a long time ago. But I really want to change that. So here I am. I set myself a goal after the latest check up to lose to 149, I dont have to be bone skinny, I just want to be normal and healthy and able to keep up with the grand kids, and beautiful for my husband, and I want to do it for me, so I can grow older and be fit. Heck, I'm only a little past the halfway mark in life, I still have a lot of living to do, and I want to so enjoy the ride.
