I'm a 51 year old mother of 3 grown children and 4 grand children. I'm married to my wonderful husband, Roy of 21 years.

I started with sparkpeople when I was 45 years old weighing 209 pounds. My goal then was to get down to 160 pounds and hopefully wear a size 12.

Well, I have not reached my goal weight yet but I've gone beyond a size 12 and now I'm wearing a size 8.
I'm so pleased of the size that I'm at now. When I originally wrote my introduction text, I thought that being at 160 pounds would have me in a size 12. But I've found out that when you'll doing weight training the weight will be more because muscles weigh more than fat. It's hard to believe, but it's true. This is the first time in my life wearing a misses size 8-10. I'm so excited. I know this will be something I'll do for the rest of my life.

My focus now is to not concentrate on weight loss but to focus on body fat loss.

    Haven't talked to you in awhile, I hope you're doing great! Once these headaches start going away, maybe we can walk again? I go to the pain clinic next week, so I should know more then. ((hugs))

    Thank you. You have made me feel even better about my health. I have already made the decision to change my eating habits a long time ago, but still hadn't completely changed my mind set. But I had to just get up and Do It! And reading your very inspiring page has me feel, that, I can't put a time limit on my weight loss goal, but put time into it! I am a week into the gym and I have to say, I see a change in me already. And so has my family. I will continue to check back on your page to get that motivational fix when I feel myself start to slip..Truly, Thank you!
