I'm 54 years old today. I feel the healthiest I ever have in my life!

I'm living the lifestyle, eating & exercising like the slim, fit & healthy person I want to be; by body can't help but catch up, because I'm worth it, and I deserve it.

I've been painfully aware that I've lost large amounts of weight before, and gained it all back and more! I'm embarrassed I was 202 in 2007, 168 in 2008, 209 in 2010, and now I'm at 174. I want people to know that I gained 40 pounds, ...

I've been painfully aware that I've lost large amounts of weight before, and gained it all back and more! I'm embarrassed I was 202 in 2007, 168 in 2008, 209 in 2010, and now I'm at 174. I want people to know that I gained 40 pounds, even though I was on SparkPeople. I know I'm not alone. Regain happens to other people, too. I feel for them, and want them to know that with the right kind of tools (mostly mental) you can lose the weight for the last time.

I'm 54, divorced and have 3 boys: 27, 24 & 16.

emoticon The Motivator of the Day. What an honor.

Jason Fung M.D. has six one-hour lectures on YouTube in which he explains why we regain weight and how we must work to keep the weight off for at least one full year in order to establish a new "set point' for our bodies. He explains how we can stop Insulin Resistance and not get Type 2 diabetes. I've learned so much from him. I don't want to regain the weight this time either.
