Now that I have reached my BIG 50: Years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.
Hi! I've been on this journey several times with no results. I get pissed and give up. I have a husband and two kids and always put their needs and others before mine. I am disgusted with my weight and I need help. I hope I can stay on track this time and make a lifestyle change that last. I wish you luck!

Hi all! Today is the first day back into restarting my lifestyle change. In January, 2011, I weighted in at my all time high if 259lbs. I was horrified. I had 2 pretty difficult pregnancies resulting in 2 premie babies, with my second being born 4 weeks early after 3 months bedrest. I was pumped full of medications to help with a chronic blood disorder I had, as well as meds to keep my sons in for as long as possible. I had my spleen removed in 9/2010 and was shocked at how un-healthy I had become. I decided enough was enough! I started learning weight watchers on my own and lost 50 lbs with just changing the foods that I eat, and then started adding exercise in. I've learned that I love zumba, and am now convinced that I enjoy running, hiking, biking and trying new things. I hit a plateau at 70lbs, and was there for 5 months, before my food tracking got lazy. I gained 10 of those lbs back and am currently weighting in at 197. Much better than 259, but nowhere near where I want to be. So it's game on, again! I am commiting to at last 30 mins, minimum of exercise 6 days a week with Sunday as my rest day, drinking 100 oz of water a day, tracking my foods much better, and 8 hours of sleep a night. Whose with me?!?!
