I am 49 years old and I have been happily married for 26 years. I have over 100 lbs. to lose. I have not really dieted for over 10 years. On 6/12/12 I had a complete Hysterectomy because I had a soccer ball size cyst in one of my ovaries. I had already been thinking about getting back on a diet and decided to use this as a opportunity to educate myself on how to live a healthy life.

My 50th birthday is next year. I hope to lose enough weight and inches so that I don't need a sit belt extender!!!

My Goals:
I have a long way to go, so I am setting mini goals. I achieved my first goal before my 30 days, my second goal I just barely made by 45 days. My next goal is total 40lbs by 10/12. Long term my goal is that I would get down to the size I was when I got married which was a size 18/20. I have been told by a lot of people that I can better than an 18/20, but I cannot even begin to picture myself as a size 6.

6/15/12: 316 lbs
6/12/12: Hysterectomy
7/1/12: 300.6 lbs
7/11/12: 298.6-reward bike
7/31/12: 292.8 lbs
8/31/12: 283.2 lbs
9/1/12: down 14.5 inches
10/12/12: goal 40lbs
11/1/12: 49 lbs
12/25/12: GOAL IS 60 LBS

Next step is more veggies less Skinny cow treats.

    Thanks so much for your wonderful and supportive comments on my RadioActive Girl blog! I really appreciate that you took the time to read, comment and send me your wonderful wishes.

    Apparently there are not many side effects from the RAI (no hair loss or extreme nausea) so I'm hoping that my quarantine will be just another "rainy day" week - stuck in the house - alone - hopefully SP and my other friends will keep me social during this isolated time! I only remember being in quarantine once before in my early 20's when I got the chicken pox (for the first time - whoo boy, that's a whole other story). It was definitely an interesting time. I remember getting a lot of work done and ordering in a lot of food to be delivered... I guess I won't be able to do the latter but I'm definitely hoping for a productive week!

    If you try any of the recipes let me know! I'm always looking for creative ways to play in the kitchen and this gives me a very good excuse to take the time to do so.

    Thanks again for all your support and friendship ~ Michelle.

    ... And stay tuned for the next exciting instalment of RADIOACTIVE GIRL! **grin**

    Thanks for that shout out! I haven't bought new clothes yet. They are getting loose but not quite to where I can really go down much in sizing. A few more pounds though and I definitely will!!
