I did it once and I can do it again ! 130# off and kept off for 3 years. 80# back on now due to poor coping skills with stress. This time it stays off. I don't want to die young or be in pain until I die old. I want energy and I deserve to be happy, energetic, and fit ! I've always taken care of others, now I take care of myself. NO MORE GUILT !!! I have choices.

Update: I had actually gained 147 # from my laziness. I had been at 177# for 3 years and still felt fat and out of control, poor self esteem. October 2013 I started again because I was unwilling to totally give up on myself. I discovered I really do love myself and I am worth so much more than what I think food & laziness were giving me.

10/5/2015 Update: I have finally arrived to Onederland. 199.3# Now on to goal !

Started 2/15/07, rejoined 11/17/2013. I work as a nurse, no stress there...I love my family and my pets. I have no children. I am 52 yrs old and tired of being in pain so I am choosing to change my life for the better, to make positive choices and to be thankful for all things in my life good or bad as it will teach me in the end.

Other Information:
Love to RV. I had a 1988 class A Fleetwood pacearrow. Mom used to joke that it is so delaminated, she expects to look in her rearview mirror some day to see a class A convertible. LOL. Work full time, so camping is weekends and one 2 week trip yearly. I have 1 dog and roomie has 2, all eskimo's. Also like to bike but have to adjust handles again as wrists go numb fast.

    Actually, I DID get to meet Pat from Maine along with her husband, Fred. Pat took us around Augusta, Maine where she lives, and showed us the sights, then, she took us back to her house! She has a really cute house in a nice neighborhood. We all went out to lunch together before we left. Really enjoyed the day!

    THanks so much for your encouragement! I think part of it was all the moving I did helping a friend move her fabric store from one location to another. Lots of steps and bending and stooping!! Your steps amaze me and keep me going. THanks!!

    You are one of the hardest working people on our team...we all understand that you do what you can do when you can do it!

    I hope my reminder didn't hurt your feelings or make you think that you don't participate! I SENT THIS TO EVERY SINGLE BLACK PANTHER (including the honorary ones) to try and get some enthusiasm about the race.

    We all know how much you do for the Panthers when you have the time. So when you get off work, kick back and relax and if you have time to play Tag then we welcome you to join us!

    We all know the job you do is so much more important in life than our challenges. Take care TC.
