I seem to have tried everything to try to lose weight. I want to be successful and thought I would try spark. I have gave birth to 3 children who are now adults. I blame them for part of my weight gain-lol. The other part of weight gain is the sweet tooth I have. Plus the fact that I'm now 55 doesn't help. I would like to meet somebody I can connect with and have the support I need. I live in the San Francisco bay area.

It seems that no matter what I eat or do for exercise, I can't drop an ounce (literally!) I went from a size 6/8 to a size 18 or 1W and I am tired of being fat.
