Hello everyone...so glad that I was given the opportunity to join sparkpeople......I'm 59, married since 1971 with 3 children and 5 grandchildren ..I had Gastric Bypass in 2002. I used to weigh 326 lbs...I lost my weight went down to 180...I found myself gaining cause I didn't watch what I was eating...I'm now around 206 after loosing about 13 lbs this past 5 weeks..it is hard work but well worth it..I just had a few problems... with feeling like a whole new person since loosing the weight...had to have a pacemaker put in and 3 wks later a stint in my heart.. I have chronic aniema...last year alone had to have about 6 blood transfusions..last Friday had to have Iron transfusion and will be getting them for the next 5 weeks..I'm keeping my chin up..each day is a gift to us..we alone can only make life better for ourselves by taking charge.

UPDATE: Sadly to say been sick and gained 30 lbs. so here I go starting over again.....

    Check you out Ms. Dee! I'm proud of you for coming in first place! Brian (my husband) and I are in our 7th (?) week of the current challenge. Of course this is my 2nd challenge his first. So far I'm down 10 more pounds and Brian is down 20 pounds since February! Still more to go, but hey we're getting there! Bri's confidence has been boosted so much that he's out today applying for a job! I'm so happy that we decided to do this together.

    Talk to you soon - have a good holiday weekend!

    Thanks Dee - what a rush! I'm still siked about last night! I can't believe I actually cried...I couldn't help it. I never intended to win....I just needed someone to hold me accountable! I guess the lesson here is to never sell yourself short - huh! And just think - this week I was feeling sooo discouraged that I wanted to give up. Talk about the ultimate rejuvenation of my motivation!

    Thank you soo much for coming last night. It meant sooo much having people around me that cared about me...my family and friends (new and old). I didn't expect anyone to come, but I sure am glad that you did! Especially since you weren't feeling good! Feel better today Dee....see you soon.
