Hello! I am a 45 yr old mother of 7, including a set of boy twins. I am also a grandmother to 5 grandchildren with another one due in March 2013!

The dr. wanted to put me on meds but I begged him to let me try to lose weight on my own. He gave me 2 mo. After the two months I had lost 20lbs. and the HBP was gone. I decided enough was enough and haven't looked back. It has now been 6 mo. and I have lost 45 lbs! I am running/walking 4.5 miles on an almost daily basis. I have so much energy that sometimes I can't calm down to sleep at night! (I am also currently doing strength training). I just pray that I can continue in this new lifestyle and not revert to my old habits.

I am really sorry to hear about your Mom, I can only imagine how rough it would be.

This is a great spot for encouragement and support. Check out some teams too, there are many.
