Once upon a time I was an active person that lived and worked and played outside. Then I sat upon my duff at an office job and gained 40 pounds. In shock and horror and in the profound enthusiasm of youth, I lost those 40 pounds and regained my active lifestyle.

Then the good and the bad hit all at once. In about 2 year's time - I got a promotion and moved, my new office was (literally) on top of a Subway, a donut shop, and Baskin Robbins, I got married, I got pregnant, I developed a chronic and life threatening disease, and I got pregnant again.

After those two years I was packing all the weight I'd lost and a bunch more. It's been over 10 years since then. A few years ago I lost 35 pounds and I regained 15 of it last year when I developed some more health problems.

For my health and because I want to live to a ripe old age to see these scamps of mine grow up into the great young men they promise to be, I want and need to loose the rest of this weight.

My main challenge is that too much exercise and being outside too much can make me quite ill so I must do everything in moderation.

I'm hoping that the support I find on this group along with the other things I'm doing - Weight Watchers, a supportive group of friends at work, and regular exercise classes at the YMCA will help me to stay on track.

    Hi there G!
    I hope your dad will be doing better soon. I know how hard it is to take care of kids and parents. I've been there.
    Hang in there and be sure to take extra good care of yourself too!

    Thanks again for your comment. Well, let me just say I prefer the treadmill to the elliptical. I have been trying some different things to break up my routine. When I am in the mood I start on the elliptical until I don't think I can do another second, and then get on the treadmill to complete my hour. I have slowed down a little, and have not been too faithful to SP, but have now lost 47 pounds!! Yeah. I am hoping to lose another 4 before the Prospect Jamboree and Timber Carnival in 3 weeks.
    Have a great week!!
