This was me two years ago unbelievable how I had let myself go. I didn't even realize it until my uncle took this picture of me and I saw it. I do know at that time I was at the lowest point of my life. I felt my life was falling apart, I had never been more miserable then I was then. I was fast approaching 60 years old which totally freaked me out and I really had no where to go except up. Then I learned of SparkPeople by accident. I logged on and set my goal for losing the weight in one year, the date I turned 60. I followed the plan and in that first year I lost 80 pounds. I was pretty scared because in the past I have lost weight (but never 80 pounds) and always gained it back. I knew this time had to be different. So for the past year I have worked ever so hard at keeping the weight off. I still exercise and record my food. Oh I have gained a few pounds but I get right back to limiting my food until the pounds are gone. I know it has only been a year but I have never ever kept weight I lost off this long. This gives me hope that this is it. I know I need to keep recording and exercising and praying. I never what to be that person in the picture again.
