I was so unhappy with my self I would look in the mirror and would say who is that fat person in my body. I always was thin my whole life raising 5 children I had to cook all the time and I could eat anything and never gain I was always was a 6 or 8 in cloths. I married my husband at 57 years old and moved to northern Ohio in the country I was a size 8 when then. He said you are to thin you need to gain some weight so I started eating ice cream and all kinds of goodies to gain weight my stomach got use to all the food and here I am. I tried several times to get this weight off Adkins diet not good for me. When I got on the scale in December it said 216 I was just so overwhelmed what am I going to do I was so desperate I got on the computer and put in I am obese and very unhappy I found this site so I joined I started my (diet) life change the first of January and I have lost 19 pounds I am so proud of my self. I am always looking at different foods to see what the calories so I can keep myself under my calorie intake so far I have been doing great. The main thing for me is I took the first step to a healthy me.
