I have had a weight problem ever since I was a child. I remember how focused my family was on it. When I was in fifth grade, I met a pediatrician who got me a diet I could manage myself and I became pretty empowered and lost a great deal of weight. When I went to college, when most people gain weight I lost and kept it off pretty well until after my first child. About the age of 40, I mentally became tired and threw in the towel.

I have had a weight problem ever since I was a child. I remember how focused my family was on it. When I was in fifth grade, I met a pediatrician who got me a diet I could manage myself and I became pretty empowered and lost a great deal of weight. When I went to college, when most people gain weight I lost and kept it off pretty well until after my first child. About the age of 40, I mentally became tired and threw in the towel. Unfortunately the pounds started to sneak up on me. At 55 I got on the scale and realized I could be considered obese. Also my blood pressure was up and my liver enzymes and my calcium levels were out of whack. I knew I had to gain control again, or I won't be able to enjoy my grandchildren.

I been with Spark People for just over four years now. I am not where I want to be but my doctors have seen a radical improvement in all the things that were going bad. I am still working toward my goal weight but enjoying life as it comes. I appreciate all the support that I have received from my Spark Friends and am committed to keep at it.

Thank you for the salad spark goodie. Our weather has taken a dive in temps, so Hot cocoa is good too right now.
Hope you are feeling ok. Sad about your news about the student. Did you know him personally? In your school?
Have a a good night and Thursday. emoticon

Oh, you will enjoy Downton's new season! Didn't know you were a fan too. I may watch it over. Like those restful Sunday evening TV watching too! Glad you are liking my photos. I sure hate to hear you are that cold now! Yikes! We are warmer this winter than ever before..record breaking temps. UGH! But, really not complaining, that is why I moved to FL. to get away from winters like you're having right now. Hang in there...spring will be here before you know it. I mean, look how fast 2105 went by! emoticon emoticon
