My weight-loss journey!

Hi, my name is Mary and I am 51-years-old and ready to lose the extra 40 lbs that I accumulated in my 40's. My youngest of 4 children is going to college after this summer. So I'll have more time to spend on getting myself in shape and finding some new activities to get involved in. Empty nest syndrome is right around the corner!

Personal Information:
I am 51 and live in the Cleveland, Ohio area and I have about 40 lbs to lose. I have four beautiful children between the ages of 33 and 17. I also have four very loveable cats; Sammmy, Kobe, Bella and Boo. I play soccer 3x/week. Also practice Tai Chi, Yoga and QiGong when I have the time. I love to jump rope and HulaHoop! Mine actually glows in the dark!

Other Information:
I have always been very active and weighed about 120 lbs. But when I hit my 40's I started to gain weight (sound familiar). I think that by dieting, I actually gained even more weight. So now in my 50's I'm going to try a new approach that I am learning on this website. Wish me luck and I'll let you all know how it goes!

Thank you for the Spark Flowers - it was such a NICE surprise!
Yeah, I like eating. OH I meant, I like eating ALL kinds of food. Then again, I like eating too! HAHA
BUT, it IS all about 'moderation' in the end. *sigh*
WOW you're off to a GREAT START! You'll achieve your goal (no pun intended --- OKAY, so PUN intended! HAHA) in no time.
Again, thanks for thinking of me!!!
