Finally Fit!

After spending the majority of my first fifty years as an overweight couch potato, I decided to turn 50 at a healthy weight and get physically fit. That was nine years ago and after losing 78 lbs., I am a slender, healthy, grandmother who loves to run and bike. I still struggle with food issues and wish I could say that it is easy to keep
the weight off but it takes daily effort. I'm here to further that effort and gain motivation from other people who can appreciate the struggle...

I am glad I stumbled by your story. You are an inspiration. You look terrific... I too have lived my first 50 years in a fat suit. Its time to shed the baggage. Live every day to the fullest. Thank You for being such an inspiration.
