Starting over

I have 4 children ages 20, 18, 14, 13. Two girls then two boys. I've been married for 22 years. Thankfully my husband has never been critical of my weight. I'm the 2nd oldest of 13 children. I was 11 before my first sister was born. I remember as a teen thinking I was fat and beginning to diet. Oh how I wish I was that weight again. I've really struggled with my weight since I went to college in 1983. I've had ups and downs. I even had one point where I lost 150 pounds and nearly ...
I have 4 children ages 20, 18, 14, 13. Two girls then two boys. I've been married for 22 years. Thankfully my husband has never been critical of my weight. I'm the 2nd oldest of 13 children. I was 11 before my first sister was born. I remember as a teen thinking I was fat and beginning to diet. Oh how I wish I was that weight again. I've really struggled with my weight since I went to college in 1983. I've had ups and downs. I even had one point where I lost 150 pounds and nearly reached my goal, but I did it using effedra and when I went off the effedra I began gaining weight, got depressed and eventually gained back all 150 pounds I lost plus 50 more. At my highest weight I was 328. I want to get down to 130 and go shopping for new clothes. Plus - my sister-in-law and I are going to do something fun.
I'm a grandma. I don't want to be the FAT grandma, I want to be the cool grandma that does things with the grandchildren.

My Goals:
I want to be steadily losing weight by Christmas.

My Program:
I'm taking baby steps. I'm tracking what I eat and I'm staying in touch with my wonderful sister-in-law - she really helps me be motivated.

Personal Information:
I live in Arizona. I've lived here all my life. My husband is a native arizonan too. Both our families have been here for 3 generations.

Other Information:
I put my starting weight at what I was when I started the program I'm on (September 2, 2007) I didn't join sparkpeople until later, but I wanted to get "credit" for the weight I've already lost ;)

How are you doing? Sorry I've been MIA - things have been a bit hectic. Just when I think that life can't be anymore hectic, I'm proved wrong :) They're going good - just crazy. I've been able to find that the bike doesn't hurt my ankle. I am so ready for it to be better. I guess I haven't quite learned the lesson of patience yet :) I hope you have a great and healthy weekend! Love ya

HOw are things going? I messed up a couple of days in a row -but I'm ok with it. I have been able to do better at getting more sleep. I am having a hard time with patience concerning my ankle - I just want to get back to really hard cardio workouts. I know I will if I just let it rest, but - oh...... it is so hard to do that :) Well, I hope you're having a good week - if not, today is the middle of the week - you can change it around :) Love ya sis
