I've Been Trying For 6 Years Now! Time To Get Serious!!

I am 58 years old. Weight has not always been a problem for me. In fact when I was a child and teenager and into my 20''s, I was really under weight. But, after 2 babies, a failed marriage and other life happenings, the weight piled on....a whole lot of weight. I have many health problems due to my obesity. I am definitely an emotional eater.

I am married and have two grown children and two handsome, precious grandsons and two beautiful, wonderful granddaughters. My grandchildren are my inspiration. I want to live to see what they become.

Fitness Minutes: 8,479

My Goals:
I have approx 90 pounds to lose and I know the road will be hard. I also want to start exercising when I can (I have severe arthritis that limits that), but want to do what I can. I want to be healthy and not have so much pain. I am a diagnosed diabetic taking medication.

My Program:
Getting and STAYING active on SparkPeople. The staying part is the hardest for me. Since being diagnosed with diabetes, my doctor has always recommended a low carb diet to help control my blood sugars. No more than 30 carbs per day. Also my heart muscle doesn't relax....more meds. I also have severe arthritis in my knees which makes exercise difficult, but try to get out everyday and do at least some kind of exercise. I've done all of this to myself over years of being overweight. It is just not about choice any longer, it's about living or dying.

Personal Information:
My name is Beth. I need to make some serious changes in my life. I quit smoking 3 years ago which I'm very proud of. But, now I have this weight that I just can't seem to get motivated about and it is killing me slowly but surely.

Other Information:
I like flower and cactus gardening, TV and reading. I had to stop working due to my arthritic body and depression. I never wanted to feel this bad in my 50s.
