I am 59 and married. I have 6 grandchildren and I have a great grand girl. I need to lose at least 100 lbs.
I come from a family of large boned over weight people. My mother & Father were raised on the farm so every meal was a big meal with lots of calories. Bisquits and gravy, Fried chicken and Pork chops etc. I was the skinny child (of five) until I was 19. I have been up and down the scale several times. One of those times is when I was divorced in 1978. I lost 53 lbs, in 3 months. I didn't eat but once a day. How silly was that. I started to gain the weight back a few years later until here I am today at 255 lbs. People say that I don't look that fat. I am not really concerned about my looks as much as my health. I have just been diagnosed with Celiac disease and I suspect my mother had it as well. I have had major stomach problems for about 5 years. I am tired all the time and I have skin issues on occasion.
All my children are grown. I have lost two siblings too soon due to health issues.
I am looking forward to the day when I can change my current picture with a much thinner and healthier me.
I feel very good about SP and I am confident that I can change my lifestyle and reach my goals to lose weight and be GF.
