I'm 58 years old and I've always been heavy. I tend to feel that losing weight is impossible for me but I want to change. Nine years ago I lost 70 pounds and have gained it back plus 18. I know this is not an uncommon story. I'm excited to find such an encouraging, supportive online community filled with others who are nodding their heads while reading this introduction. I must stop "beating myself up" and simply do something about this. I want to honor my God with a more disciplined life, no longer enslaved to the controlling reign of food in my life. To God be the glory!

My Program:
Use the food tracker and fitness tracker daily.

Try at least one new recipe every week.

Joined Operation Tranformation at GRMC in October,2009. South Beach Diet, workouts with a class trainer, and weekly weigh ins with doctor supervision have been very supportive for me.

    Hey Jane! I think mom is going to tell you this, but I want to also tell you on here, that yesterday my grandma commented that you were lookin' good! Those weren't her exact words, but that was pretty much what she said. It's always nice to hear that people are noticing!! emoticon

    Guess what? That weight loss ticker doesn't move on it's own...YOU made it move... emoticon emoticon 11.5 lbs less of you...awesome! You must be really excited by now and I'm excited for you. The new program you joined must be working well; are you liking it? I just realized you've written some blogs here; I'll have to get them read soon. Right now, I have an errand list two miles long and need to get hopping :) Have a day of blessings and wise choices. emoticon from your friend, Kathy

    Hello and Praise the Lord on this beautiful Sonday!
    Just stopping by to say hi and to see how you were doing. I see you went to Israel! That is such a blessing! I would love to go there one day.
    Pray that you and yours have a blessed and wonderful week in the Lord
