I am 48 years old and have struggled with weight issues my whole life... 15 years ago I weighed 337 pounds. With the help of Weight Watchers and my family and friends I lost the majority of my weight but have never truly reached my final goal. Over the last 10 years I have been through some major life changes... Divorce, Moving, Job change, Remarriage. Bewteen 2001 and 2003 I underwent 5 knee surgeries and a major back surgery in 2007. I have experienced the loss of some wonderful family members as well as having gained some wonderful new family members with my new marriage in 2008 , as well as my youngest daughters marriage in 2007! All these changes and challenges seem to be marked by distinctive fluctuations in my weight. One of my desires is to overcome the emotional eating or not eating, factor in my life. I have a wonderful husband, two beautiful daughters, and 2 amazing grand daughters! I am blessed with some of the worlds most amazing friends! From my longest tome friend who has stuck by me since 1st grade to some of my newly acquired friends these last couple of years who have been a great motivation to me to get back on track and finally reach my goal! I have a great love for life and feel that everyday there is something to smile about and much laughter to share no matter what the circumstances! Life is Good... the alternative is not so good... lol
