My name is Charlotte and I am obese.

I am 56 years old and I know I have about 100 pounds to lose. Last time I was weighed, I was 263 pounds, and that was 8 or 9 months ago! The amount of extra poundage that I carry astounds me, worries me, depresses me. I have to start the changes that I am so good at writing about.

Member Since: 9/20/2007

SparkPoints: 3,142

Fitness Minutes: 2,605

My Goals:
To walk every day, no excuses.

To continue to swim twice a week.

To cut out added salt, and added sugar. No more white bread or pasta.

Go back to dietitian's weekly classes for support.



My Program:
Keeping a food diary, looking at the Nutrition Tracker for meal ideas and counts, using my low-fat cookbooks.

I keep a little notebook for grocery lists and meal planning and try to update it every 2 or 3 days.

Other Information:
I thrive on group support and find this online community to be very inspirational and helpful. I finally feel that the decades-long issues with weight and food can be resolved so that I can feel healthy and able to face my "older" years with more confidence.

Hi Charlotte. I'm new here and was blog browsing and found you. I waas looking for 50+ers like myself...I think we have an added challenge right there. Good job staying with the good eating plan even through the stressful time, that's one of my downfalls.
