Hi Debra, sounds good to me. I'm 53, i have been married for 25 yrs. I have one daughter 18 and a niece that's 30 that we took in when she was 17 and my sister died, so we consider her our daughter too. She just got married in October. I am currently running our Embroidery business with my husband but we will probably be shutting down soon as the economy is horrible, so I'm currently looking for a job.

Otherwise, I love dogs and have 3 ( I would have more if my HOA allowed it, not that i would become some crazy dog hoarder). LOL. I have a wire-haired dachshund, Phoebe 8 yrs old, I have a chichuahua/mix Bella who's 3, and a long haired dachshund, Daisy Mae who we just got and she's 1 1/2 yrs old.

I have been trying for a long time to loose this unwanted weight. I am Type 2 diabetic and have stopped taking my insulin as it makes me gain weight. so I'm giving myself this opportunity to change my lifestyle and exercise to see if i can't get my sugars under control without the meds. I am determined. I've had some skinny moments in my life but this time I need to get it to stick.

Wow 4 kids, god bless ya, I'm impressed that my one made it to 18. HaHa just kidding. We're surviving the teenage years cautiously. You seem to have survived every age category. I think this will be a good mix for us. I've forced myself out of bed every morning this week to exercise and I'm tracking everything I eat. It does help me to track I just hate doing it.

I'm sorry this is so lengthy. I live in Charlotte, NC by way of NJ. LOL

Hi, I joined SP a while ago but just restarted this week. I need someone to be accountable to. I've gotten myself out of bed every morning this week to exercise and each day I'm getting better with staying within my range of calories per day. But it would be great to have someone that we can check in with each other every day.

I'm at a point in my life where I don't really have anyone for support, so it would be great if i could find someone on here to help me and I can help you. We could keep each other motivated and on track.

I've lost a lot of loved ones in my life and since then I keep a wall up that tends to keep people at bay, but in realizing this I'm trying to break out of my shell. I'm 53 yrs old, I have 2 daughters, and I've been married 25 years.

Anyone interested in a friendship and a life style change buddy, just let me know. emoticon
