New To SparkPeople
Saturday, May 14, 2011
Hi, I'm new to the site but not to the struggle of losing weight. I'm looking for friends to motivate me, and I hope I can motivate others as well. My highest weight was 436 pounds. I lost down to 245 pounds, but over the last few years I have struggled with regaining 50 pounds, losing 40 of that, then regaining 45. It's a constant up and down cycle that I hope to finally break. A lot of the problem is stress from finances and work, but another part is due to hormonal changes within my body. At 49 years of age I'm finding that it truly is more difficult to lose the older you are. And the fact that I work 3rd shift makes it difficult as well, but I love working nights, so I just have to find the motivation to work that much harder. I hope to find that here. Wish me luck!
