I joined SP for a short time in 2006. Hence my choice of username - I had just turned 50. I have been overweight for the past dozen years and have used that as a form of protection from romantic relationships. I am an emotional eater; eating when I'm sad, happy, bored etc. But I would like to be thin again; to be able to walk without huffing and puffing; to be able to get down on the floor and back up again gracefully; to be less self-conscious and more self-confident as I was before I gained the weight. I'm hoping to learn much, and give and receive encouragement here. And I'm hoping to see if Oprah was right that 50 IS the new 30!!

Personal Information:
I am a 56 year old Christian widow from Illinois. I am thankful to still have both of my parents and enjoy spending time with them as well as my brother's family. I enjoy antiquing, flea markets, scrapbooking, working in my yard and decorating projects, although as the weight has gone higher, my desire to do much of anything has dwindled.

Other Information:
I love cats, but for the past two years have not have any. But I always click on SP who have cats in their profile picture. Maybe one of these days I'll have another one.
