A new beginning

I am now in the 60's and starting eating for the wrong reasons in my teens. My weight issues were made worse by gaining a lot of weight during my pregnancies. The doctor told me that during pregnancy you can multiply fat cells and they will want to be filled up the rest of your life. I believe him now more than then! So I have lost weight up and down several times in all these years. Each time I am embarrased about gaining it back. So here I am again just trying to be healthy. I am tired ...

The doctor told me that during pregnancy you can multiply fat cells and they will want to be filled up the rest of your life. I believe him now more than then! So I have lost weight up and down several times in all these years. Each time I am embarrased about gaining it back. So here I am again just trying to be healthy. I am tired of hearing that obesity can cause every ailment under the sun and knowing that means me. I need to be healthy to live a life where I can do the things I enjoy. I have been jailed in this body. My only hope is that when I lose the weight, my body will still be there for me.
My biggest challenge is a job that is very stressful and long hours during several months of the year. My pattern has been to get healthy during the normal times and to gain it back during the stressful times. I really can't change jobs now.
In so many ways I am lucky; I have a lot to be thankful for. I am thankful for finding this site. It is amazing.

BTW, I'm sure you know that that "Beautiful Woman Award" that people keep sending around is against Spark's policy since it is Chain Mail, as it says to "Paste it on the page of 8 women". They have posted about it a number of times.

BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AWARD

Hi! Just a shout out to congratulate you!

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

"Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!"

Again, Congratulations Beautiful!

Thanks for spreading a little beauty, love, friendship, and support into my life!

I've been to that edge. I turned around and so will you. We have been successful before and this plateau will be gone before you know it. We ARE a success story still being written.

You are doing so great with your weight loss. Yeah, we all have control issues. Yours seem to be in check and balanced about now. Is it easier to keep your priorities straight these days?
