This is me, before weight loss...I can hardly believe I could move!
Visiting Chicago -- first trip after weight loss where I could actually walk (10 miles that day)!
I'm a 51-year-old woman who's had bariatric surgery, and still need to lose 70 lbs. Looking for some buddies to help me stay motivated!
Ultimately, I want to reach a truly healthy weight, but in the interim, I want to have the scale go down and my energy level to go up!
Tracking my food and exercise are critical to my success, but I also have little goals, including:
- Drinking 8 glasses of fluid a day
- Not eating after 8 p.m.
- Never giving up; learn from setbacks, rather than use them as excuses to give up!
My name is Kathy, and I work in public relations. I live with my husband, no kids, and we're HUGE University of Missouri fans!

Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*

Hey M27! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I'm 51 as well and looking to lose 62 lbs. I refuse to go through my 50's overweight and unhappy about myself.
Lost 5.7 lbs so far and by this Saturday, I'm going to have a total of 6 lbs down....my first small goal!!
If I can do it, so can you! I'm here if you need an encouraging word.
