I have had a weight problem ever since I was a child. I remember how focused my family was on it. When I was in fifth grade, I met a pediatrician who got me a diet I could manage myself and I became pretty empowered and lost a great deal of weight. When I went to college, when most people gain weight I lost and kept it off pretty well until after my first child. About the age of 40, I mentally became tired and threw in the towel. Unfortunately the pounds started to sneak up on me. At 55 I got on the scale and realized I could be considered obese. Also my blood pressure was up and my liver enzymes and my calcium levels were out of whack. I knew I had to gain control again, or I won't be able to enjoy my grandchildren.

I been with Spark People for just over four years now. I am not where I want to be but my doctors have seen a radical improvement in all the things that were going bad. I am still working toward my goal weight but enjoying life as it comes. I appreciate all the support that I have received from my Spark Friends and am committed to keep at it.

    Hope your eye is better. When my allergies get bad, my whole eye can turn red. Then I use special otc eye drops-Zaditor for it and within a couple days it is gone. Thanks for your well wishes for my husband...he is doing good so far. Next week the results should be in on the biopsy. Glad you use sunscreen....it sure was a wake up call to him...now he is wearing long sleeve shirts & gloves when mowing. We bought all new sunscreens too.
    Have a great week...stay safe on the roads! emoticon

    Looks like your weather will be improving this coming week! Ours is starting to get hotter again. We had such a gorgeous week last week, except for the tornado that hit 50 miles south of us. We just got an inch of rain with that storm, intense lightning and 40 mph winds. Have a good week! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank you for the goodie! Hope that snow doesn't stay around too long! I remember the 13 inches we got in April in Ohio melted pretty quick, like in a couple days! Have a good week. Drive safe! emoticon
