Back at it!

I am 61 years old and have been overweight pretty much my entire life and a member of various weight loss groups most of that time. I am hypothyroid and have a difficult time losing weight. But after a cancer diagnosis eight years ago (clean bill of health now) I know the importance of getting to a lower weight to help prevent the chance of a re-occurance.

I am 61 years old and have been overweight pretty much my entire life and a member of various weight loss groups most of that time. I am hypothyroid and have a difficult time losing weight. But after a cancer diagnosis eight years ago (clean bill of health now) I know the importance of getting to a lower weight to help prevent the chance of a re-occurance.

1/7/13 I'm back! Have taken a too long break from SP but I am ready to get back on the losing side of this weight issue. I actually did pretty well maintaining for such a long time. I seem to have that down, now if I could just lose to get to my goal and then maintain. It is time to do it!

8/7/07 I have been on SP for one year today and have not made much progress. I have had a hard time controlling my thyroid the past year and know that if I hadn't been here doing what I have been doing my weight would have gone up much higher. I have a new found motivation to kick myself into gear again and get this weight off once and for all. I CAN DO IT!!

4/21/08 I am starting again, as of today. I have gotten lax in what I have been doing. I have had a lot of stress in my life the past 6 months but I have to quit using that as an excuse.

9/17/08 Recently I have had my thyroid meds raised again. I just don't seem to make any progress with my weight loss. Work for weeks to lose a pound or two and then go out for one meal, making healthy choices, or give in to one dessert and wham, it is all back plus some. Then I work weeks again to get it back off. I want this so much but it just isn't happening.

2/17/09 I have still been struggling and am up and down the same pounds over and over. It is very frustrating but I am again going to give it my all and see if I can't break through to a new set of numbers and then continue on.

First 10% - 290 - Done
2nd 10% - 261
3rd 10% - 235
4th 10% - 211
5th 10% - 190
6th 10% - 171

Weigh ins:
278 - 4/21/08
275 - 6/2/08
272 - 6/6/08 (9/09 still holding at this weight with no progress.

My Goals:
My short term goal is to get back down into the 270s.

My Program:
I am back to doing this on my own at home. Watching calories and portions and using the resources that SP has available to us should get me losing again. I need to get the exercising going again and keep it going.

Personal Information:
I live in Wisconsin. I have done licensed family child care since 1985.

Other Information:
I am setting short mini goals until I reach my ultimate goal. I'll know what that is when I get there.


Starting weight 322


Slow but steady will still get you to the finish line.

Never give up!

Glad to have you back. Why do we always think we can do this alone?

10 years ago I was diagnosed with colon cancer, stage 1. No chemo, no radiation, but I did have surgery to remove part of my colon. Now I'm clean too and doesn't that feel good?

So let's get on with this weight loss thing. We can do it. GO, GO, GO.

Happy Saturday! I'm brand new to SparkPeople and just joined the Wisconsin Team. Pulled up the map and you are the closest person to me. I live in Beaver Dam and work in Watertown. This site is huge and I'm sure it will take me a while to figure it all out. Any pearls of wisdom you can pass along? Ann
