Hi thanks for stopping by .....

In my 20's 30's 40's and early 50's I never once exercised!!!Sparkpeople changed my life. I had been bedridden for 12 years due to illness, in turn which lead to an increase of weight by 60 lbs. I needed to get back on my feet and healthy..... googled weight loss program and here my journey began.

I lost 50 lbs. in the first 3 years looking good and feeling great ..... then I accidently injured my knee, not able to exercise as much awaiting for knee surgery which took 2 years. Gained back 20 lbs. (ouch) I'm slowly getting back on track having l 've lost 8.6 lbs. since surgery in April. I'm 62 now and it seems so much more difficult to loose the weight....... sooooooo S L O W !

I will conquer this, I refuse to give up ........ I'm stubborn :D

I do not speak French. My first name is after my great grandmother Amelia so my mom spelled it Amie because of that. Michele is for my dad Michael so my mom used the french spelling so that is why I have a french name even though I am not French
