Third Time's the Charm

I am 59 years old.
This is my third and final weight loss attempt. In 1980, at the age of 24, I lost 65 pounds, going from 185 to 120. In 2003, at the age of 47, I lost 110 pounds, going from 260 to 150.

Since 2008, back pain, two surgeries, activity restrictions, menopause, and depression have resulted in my gaining back most of the weight. I need to get back down to a reasonable weight, and make sure that I stay there for the rest of my life. Sleeve date 6/11/15!

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!!
