I'm a 50 year old female, who needs to lose 100+ pounds. Like most people in my situation, I've tried a number of different diets and ways to lose weight, often gaining back more than I lost. I've been a "normal" healthy size a couple of times in my life, but since giving birth to my three children, I have primarily gone up in weight. I do little activity now, would probably describe myself as kinda depressed, experience a lot of pain and exhaustion, and am nervous about this whole weight loss/get healthy thing -once again. I am also pre-diabetic.
What has motivated me this time? I realize that time is running out. I want to see my children grow up and I want to be around when my children have children- to be there for my grand kids (this has not yet occurred - and not quite ready for it -yet). I'd like to feel better - happier.
I hope this is it. I really do.
I'm too embarrassed to show my face so I'll probably just do a body shot. But I do want to post pictures of myself to help motive me - to push me to action. it goes....(pic to follow)

    Good Morning!!! Don't let the holidays set you back! I for one can not afford to gain any weight - need to lose at least a little so my clothes fit better and preferably a lot so my clothes in the closet fit again!!! Take Care - saw you were online! Paul.

    I thought of you and me as I read this line from SparkPeople editor Stepfanie this morning:
    "At some point you realize that life is just that: life. Ups, downs, good, bad, it's all just life. It all balances out, and letting every little bump in the road sideline you is no way to live."

    Wow, is that speaking to me directly or what!!!! I really need to think about that one every day when I sideline myself for a a "bump."

    Here's to getting over the bumps!
