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.

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 three and a half 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.

Isn't that something how weather can be so different in the same state? When we lived in Columbus Ohio, it seemed to get missed by all the bad storms most of the time too! North was the snow belt and we would always get rain or freezing rain. Or miss it all together! Glad you didn't get any of those blizzards!
Enjoy your yardwork! emoticon

I was reading on the Weather Channel page there is a town in Russia that is coldest place on earth...lowest temp recorded 98 below zero! Interesting reading how the people cope. Do you know they can't even have plumbing...all outhouses! Can you imagine running out to that all the time with a bladder problem! emoticon emoticon
So 28 would feel balmy to them! Glad to hear you are in the 40's! emoticon Don't forget your sunscreen when the sun comes back!!
When you roast that hog-just tell us what time you want us over?! emoticon emoticon

I am glad you liked the pics on my page. That is some white sand, isn't it?! There are only a few places in Florida, that has it. I just put up some new sunset photos that we took a few days ago at the beach! Have you warmed up like you thought you would or are you expecting another storm? Seems these storms just won't quit!!! emoticon
Have a good rest of the week! Thanks for the balloons goodie! Stay strong with your goals! Keep moving!! emoticon emoticon
