Hi, Stephanie. I'm an over 60 retired teacher. Happily married to a super hubby. My weight goes up & my weight goes down. But as my age went over 40s, I have a figure reminiscent of my Momma, i.e. high boobs, large waist & big hips. Since I'm only a "statuesque" 5'3" , I really can't carry the 152-155 lbs. that I was carrying. Since I no longer have a high stress, stand all the time job, it was too easy to put on the weight. And I did! I no longer weigh the original 122. I definitely want to get back to a healthy 135-138!.

So when I found this wonderful website, I knew it could be the "saving grace." I'm still fairly active but not as much as I was when I taught. Sooo I'm planning my meals, adding exercise, and reading almost any information that will help me succeed.

Please feel free to add me as a SP friend. I found that it really helps to have the encouragement of others in the same fiasco. emoticon emoticon

Welcome. Remember to explore new activities regularly to change things up and prevent boredom. Good for you to start at your own pace. Keep going and increase slowly time or intensity but not both at the same time.

You can do this.

Hello, Sparkfriends! My name is Stephanie, and I'm a 41-year old work-at-home-Mom living in the south with my husband of eighteen years and our two children. I recently reached my highest weight of 325 pounds, and I am now on my way to losing the weight and getting my life back. I joined a local gym last week and I'm starting out slow by walking on the treadmill for only twenty minutes at a time, but I've really enjoyed it. My husband and children deserve a happy, healthy wife and mother, and that's what I'm going to give them. I would love to add some new friends so we can help support each other! Good luck to you all!
