HELLO, I'M HERE!!!

Well, I've arrived. One more attempt at that big weight loss goal. From what I've seen so far, I'm in the right place. I am a mother of 3, grandmother of two, mother in law to 3. I have raised 3 sensational children into adulthood. I'm proud of myself. I am a widow. My late husband died when my youngest 2 children were just 12 & 14. I've tried every diet out there, I thought! I've had a tummy tuck, liposuction and gastric by-pass. Here I am in all my enormous glory. The two biggest ...
Well, I've arrived. One more attempt at that big weight loss goal. From what I've seen so far, I'm in the right place. I am a mother of 3, grandmother of two, mother in law to 3. I have raised 3 sensational children into adulthood. I'm proud of myself. I am a widow. My late husband died when my youngest 2 children were just 12 & 14. I've tried every diet out there, I thought! I've had a tummy tuck, liposuction and gastric by-pass. Here I am in all my enormous glory. The two biggest disappointments with my weight loss journey has been giving away my 3 children in marriage and not losing weight to fit into the size 14 dress I bought when I was a size 20. I may have even been in a size 22 at their weddings. My next disappointment was at one of my grand children's birthday parties, other grand mothers were on the floor playing with the toddlers and I got down and embarrassed, I couldn't get up. My eventual outlook was "oh well, life goes on". How pathetic! My children still look to me for strength, a feeling of belonging and a sense of stability. How dare I take that from them. I somehow found this site and am very encouraged in believing I've found my place in the diet world. I have a son in the military who is deploying soon and my goal is to surprise him with a new mom when he returns. I can do that for him, my other children and myself. Can't I??? No more questioning myselves...If he can go to war, I CAN DO THIS!!! Hope I can help make your journey possible too.

My Goals:
Will be ecstatic when I reach my goal of 65 pounds exiled. I want to be another one of my grand childrens grandmothers who can get down AND UP from playing with them on the floor!!! tee hee (not really funny).

My Program:
I'm loading up on fresh fruit to replace my cookies and other sweets. I'm dedicated to walking 1-3 miles a day to start with. Sticking to my meal plans unless I drink a hot and spicy V-8 or xtra fruit.

Personal Information:
From NW Florida

Other Information:
I'm in a real mess physically. My biggest hurdle is having hypothyroidism and taking 13 medications a day. My metabolism is bleak to say the least. That just makes me have to work harder to reach my goals.

I detracted from the site. I'm losing again and have help from my Dr. I was so excited to get in the 180s. Hows your journey going?
