I am looking for some new friends and Christian fellowship.

My name is Faye. I am 69 years old. I live with my husband of 47 years in the beautiful State of Maine.

My starting wt was 243 lbs and I lost 55 lbs. But have gained back almost all of it. I was down to 210 when I joined Spark People. Losing wt has always been a struggle for me. I need so much encouragement and hoping to find it here.

My Goals:
I just want to lose wt to feel good and to be healthy. I started out at 243 several years ago. I knew I had to start being serious about my wt. Over several years ago, a doctor told me that I needed to take off 100 lbs and at that time I weighed 235 lbs. He made me so angry, I stopped going to him and changed doctors. Well the new doctor was a little more tactful about it and suggested I lose at least 100 lbs to keep my b/p down and to get my cholesterol down below 200. So I agreed to try.

I felt I was just too fat to bother. But then I got the scare of my life. I ended up in the hospital with chest pains. No, it wasn't a heart attack, but sure did wake me up. But by then I was up to 243. I tried dieting on my own for a while and it just wasn't working. So I stumbled onto a program on the internet and I stared on it Jan 18, 2006.

I fell off the wagon, and gained back almost all wt.

I am discourage and just don't want to try anymore. I lost my insp

My Program:
I am trying to eat right by eating the right types of food. I am exercising and walking twice a week now at my local YMCA. My goal wt for now is 150. But Lord willing maybe get down to 130/135. I am 5' 5" Tall and small boned.

Personal Information:
I am from Maine...my name is Faye. I have been married to the same man now for 47 years, hoping for 50. We have two grown married children. A daughter with 3 small children. A son with three children. One 23 now and two that are 20. Which are twins.

My husband has been diagnosed with Parkinson's. It is a very stressful time for both of us.

Other Information:
The things I like to do most are: read, knit, crochet, sew, walk when I can, and write. I was working on a novel, but it got put on the back burner for now. I put out a prayer letter five days a week. I call it HAVE FAITH IN HIM. I have around 63 readers now.

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

Thanks so much for the Goodie and the encouragement! It was so nice of you to comment.

I AM sticking to my goals. I just haven't updated my weight loss for a while. I'm wearing clothes that are almost 3 sizes smaller now and continuing with my exercise 60+ minutes 6 days/week. I've gotten away from obsessing about the scale because I'm happier concentrating on the change in the way my clothes fit.

Have a wonderful day!
