I am trying to get back on track. I have always fought weight gain and have gone up and down.
In 2005 I lost down to about 145. This was really great at this time in my life. I had heart problems and had to have a stent. Because of the heart problem, my gynocologist took me off HRT. I hit menopause hard. When I got through the worst of it I found out that I had developed hypothroydism. Boy, did I gain weight! Then I had to have heart bypass surgery. After that I gained even more weight. I weigh more now than I ever have.
This is no excuse. I've got to overcome this and get my weight down.
SparkPeople is going to help me rescue myself!
I am making small changes. SparkPeople is one thing I am going back to for help. I am back on Step one now. Also, I am getting more involved in the different groups.
I'm having fun!
I live in Alabama. It is a wonderful place to live.
We have four distinct seasons. The only season that can be tough is the summer (hot & humid). We have all learned that one needs to have an air conditioner and enjoy being around water. I love the lake!
