Reinventing Myself

I finally managed to lose 110 pounds, and maintain it for five years. This was my biggest life accomplishment. I thought the monster was under control. Wrong! In the last few years, menopause, back pain, two surgeries, activity restrictions, and depression have resulted in my gaining back 80 pounds. I need to get back down to a reasonable weight, and make sure that I stay there for the rest of my life.

Finally managed to track my intake for a full week! And stayed within my calorie limits -- at the high end -- but still within suggested range. Lost 3 pounds this week.

Hey gorgeous! thanks for the add, I think you can totally nail this! I feel like I should be coming to you for advice, asking the right way to lose weight! I think you can totally drop this 50 lbs and maintain, the hardest step as you know is taking the first step. Hugs to you and I have added you as well, let me know anything I can do to help you on this journey, even if it's just holding your hand when needed.
Hugs,
Renee

Thanks for adding me as a friend (I added you too). A person can't have too many friends, especially when trying to lose weight and can use all the support that's available!

By the way, love your pictures - I really need to travel more!!
