I'm 55 yrs old and have been heavy most of my life. I've done the yo-yo thing several times and am now back up to my highest weight! 13 years ago I lost 60 Ilb with Weight Watchers and kept it off for 3 years. Then...I got married and moved away from my support group and then my Mom died and it all went to the dogs. But now I'm determined to get back to that pre-married weight, which is still an unhealthy BMI but much better than what I am right now!

2008 Year-End Update: Well ...

2008 Year-End Update: Well its been just over a year now since I joined SP and I've almost reached my pre-married weight (just 5 lbs to go!) On this journey I've lost over 50 lbs, developed good eating habits & incorporated regular fitness activity into my lifestyle. I know now that this journey is forever because its just too easy to fall back into those "old" habits. One of my fitness goals was to start running again and starting Jan 9, 2009 I'll be attending the "Learn to Run" clinic run by the Running Room. GO Mary GO!! Thank you to all those out there in SP land who have helped motivate me along the way! I can't wait to see what changes I'll be able to record at the end of 2009!!

2009 Update: WooHoo !! Feb 15/09 I have met my original goal of getting back to my pre-married weight of 170 lbs! (Total lost to date - 56 lbs). Now the adventure continues to lose another 44 lbs, of which I'm aiming to lost 30 this year! I love SPARKPEOPLE!

2010 Update: Well it just wasn't a good year. My daughter died in April of 2009 and I lost focus completely. I've now gained back all but 1.5 lbs of the weight I worked so hard to lose! So we're starting over. I did it before with the help of SP and I can do it again!
