Well, I managed to get within 4 pounds of my goal weight, but I have turned 60 without reaching my goal. HOWEVER, I am not too discouraged because I am looking at the whole picture - actually the whole picture of my life. I attended my niece's wedding on April 16th, and my husband took a picture of me and my dad:
. This picture reminded me of the picture of me at my dad taken in 1971 when I was 20 years old. Here it is:
Through the years I have put on a few pounds, but really I have never moved out of a healthy BMI.
Although I so admire the Spark stories and pictures of the incredible weight loss and life style changes, I realize that I have been blessed to keep to a reasonable weight throughout my life. I will never be a huge success story, but still all of the information on Spark People has encouraged me to continue the saga of "before, during and after" that I have been on for the last 40 years. I am looking forward to the next 20 years or as long as the good Lord gives me!
P.S. My dad is 88 now and he looks great!
