I have gained and lost and gained over 100 lbs 4 times so far in my life, including once since I joined SparkPeople. I need for this time to be the last 100+ lb weight loss. It has been the biggest battle of my life. I am fighting to live.. there is too much history of heart disease in my family.

Thank you to all my SparkFriends! You have stayed with me through good times and bad. I can once again see the light at the end of the weightloss tunnel!!

Fitness Minutes: 56,882

My Goals:
My longterm goal is to lose and keep off over 100 lbs. My short term goal is to be aware of what I am eating at each meal, since portion control is an issue. I will weigh and measure everything. Also I want to make sure I drink my 8 glasses of water a day. Another short term goal is to give myself a break if I am not perfect on my eating program and to remember that not being perfect does not mean failure.

My Program:
My program is to stay within the confines of the SP plan given to me-1200 to 1550 calories, to exercise a little everyday and to drink all my water everday. I will participate in my team posts. The most important part of my program is to keep a good attitude, no matter what......

Personal Information:
I turn 57 years old this year(2010) and am single. I am a retired Teamster. I live in central NJ and am owned by a 7 year old cat. I love to watch any and all paranormal shows, as well as read paranormal romance/mystery books. I also love science fiction fantasy- especially dragons.

Other Information:
I am sometimes remiss at answering emails. I will try very hard, making it one of my goals, to answer them in a timely fashion in the future. I don't know why it is so hard for me, maybe because my typing skills are very poor.

Hi, I just clicked the "add a friend" button on your page. I hope you will agree. My story has a lot in common with yours, with the repeated gaining and losing of weight. I have over 200 pounds to lose. I have already experienced several health problems due to my weight, including the development of Type II Diabetes, lymphedema (water retention in my legs, necessitating daily wrapping with compression bandages), low back and knee pain...just to name the main ones! I would enjoy sharing my weight loss journey with you. emoticon
