I am 48 yrs.old, married 20 yrs. and have one daughter. We live in Kelowna, B.C.. For 16 yrs. we lived in a very remote area, which did not work for me at all. I became deppressed, developed some very poor habits and gained 70lbs.. For the past three yrs. we've been living in a great little city with lots of opportunities for healthy activities with a brand new 50m pool/fitness centre and the Greenway(milles of pathways along a natural creek) within walking. Since Sept.2008 I have lost 50lbs. through lots of swimming, some strength training and portion control eacept for giant salads. I shoot for around 500 cals. per meal. Consistency is always the challenge what with depression, ADD, OCD, and/or maby its just hormones from hell perhaps caused from not controlling blood sugar levels hence insulin(??). Measurements taken Sept.'08 were; thighs--25", calves--15", chest--47", waist--39", hips--47". Measurements taken Jan.30'11 were: thighs--17", calves--131/2, chest--40", waist 35", hips 4

Hey sorry I have totally spaced your friend request! I am doing okay in most areas but my insurance is yanking me around on my meds. It's so easy to bully the ADD lady - she totally forgets the next step!
Thanks for adding me as a friend and I promise to do better!

i tried doing laps last week - and can't believe how hard it is! It used to be so effortless! I did 100 yards - slow as molasses in january - and thought my arms were going to fall off. it was really fun to get in the water, though. I'm going to have to make it happen a little more often, I can see!
