Hi everyone. Welcome back, patti. I'm almost 53 and have had good success here but like you, I had so much to lose I'm still plugging away even after 80 pounds. I had dinner last night with 10 of my 11 girl cousins so undoubtedly had a gain there. But today starts a new week and I pledge to myself to eat healthy and smart all week as well as get in at least 4 days of exercise. Want to join me in that pledge?

Hi Pattie, good to have you here, and as Mona said, Please come and join us on the Small, slow and steady thread, where we are learning one new habit a week and having fun making them habits to us
I also have a person to lose and am really working hard to learn to eat healthily instead of going on a diet!!

Thanks! And good luck to you also! I keep telling everyone that you have to KNOW you will do something not just hope you will. I guess I should take my own advice.

I understand the being here and then coming back. Unfortunately I still lack the willpower but I know that I must lose the weight. My doctor is threatening to do surgery if I don't start losing weight.

Goodluck on this time around



Be a good steward. I need to take care of all that God has given me.

Hi! My name is Patti and I am 53 years old with a person to lose, as I am twice the person I should be. I tried SparkPeople before and lost a few pounds. I really want to get healthier and lose some weight. I am giving it another try.
