me and my car.........April 2009
me at Lake Ontario, July 2007
me in Sept 2003, at my ideal weight, 132
In June of 1999, after weighing 246lbs, I started Weight Watchers Points System, and by March of 2000, I was down to 135lbs.....I felt great.......exercising, eating healthy, and loving life. Then I got divorced, lost custody of my kids, lost my dad and several other close family members within 18 months, and started to have major health issues.

I was put on steriods off and on from 2005 until present, and have taken so many antibiotics.......I think that plus the stress of my life has put some weight back on. Plus not exercising and eating healthy did not help. I now weigh 166lbs. And am not happy about it at all.
I want to be 135 again.
I want to drink more water, exercise everyday and feel better overall.
Eat between 1000-1200 calories per day.
Walk the dogs before and after work.
Do Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred 5 days per week, and ride my elliptical 5 times per week.
Do not eat after 8pm-mostly due to my severe acid reflux.
I would like to be back to my image picture by fall.
I am 41 years old, from a small town in central Pa, Wiconisco.
I enjoy camping and cooking and walking.
I belong to 2 different support for moms without custody...if you are in need, let me know. I have been alienated from my children for almost 5 years now, and the pain is almost unbearable at times, and I'm sure that has attributed to my health and weight gain.
Never quit, no matter how much it hurts.

Thanks for coming by!:)) I had M.G. Then just had to get some things done and was on track for a few days then caught my cold! I NEVER get sick so, it's been a rough going on day #5. I have been doing a little something everyday but when I started to keep track of everything like I used to I started gaining weight again! I just don't get it. I'm ok with things right now. I have come to terms with the way I'm built and the way I eat I will always either be around 130 pounds or be kicking myself in the butt to try to be a few pounds less for a few day at a time. I will save those times for when it counts. Maybe this summer I will slim down and when I get better maybe things will be better, I'm not one to spend all my time working out for nothing. I did that the last couple of years and missed out on time with my older dog that passed away on March 15th 2011. I have horrible regrets about that. But, I'm rambling right now! LOL!:)) I wish that stupid video would load up.
What's going on with you?

You asked what I was holding in that photo. It is a bag of cotton candy! YUM! I have eaten about 4 bags of the stuff since the 29th of Jan.! HAHAHA!!! I think I'm done with it till next year. Now it's time for Roman candy if the weather permits!

Did you ever get a response to needing a buddy? If not, I am more than happy to join up with you. I have a much longer road to travel than you do, but that shouldn't affect accountability.

I posted this also on my blog where you asked me the question, but wasn't sure if you would check there and didn't want you to think I was ignoring your question, LOL.
Here's a cut and paste of what I said there:
I finally got accepted last night and signed up. I'm still a little confused about how to "pin" things, but will hopefully get some time later after I take care of the kids, go super double coupon shopping, etc. to check it out and do some research on the Pinterest site.
I can't figure out how to add people unless they are your Facebook friends. I've searched the entire site and let my "techie" daughter help me, but neither one of us could figure it out either.
I'm sure you'll get an invitation to the site soon, mine took just a few days of waiting.
