Hello and Welcome!!
Co-leader Starfish Team of Spring 5% Challenge - EDT
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
Congrats on your weight loss so far and best wishes as you continue on your journey!
Hi everyone, I am 55 , mother of 4 grown children , grandmother of 4. I was a mail carrier for almost 20 yrs. quit last March due to extreme stress and foot surgery. My dad died in 2009 and I did not handle it well. Stopped walking and work in June of 2010 on doctors orders and had surgery on my foot in August 2010 . Worst experience, not able to walk for 3months. I was already overweight , and after this I gained another 40 lbs. was so depressed and worried about my job and money. I couldnt get it together. I have spent the last yr. beating myself up about my weight. I went for a yearly check up in Jan this year. I found out my cholesterol was 285 and my blood sugar was on the edge of developing diabetes:( I finally have started to take control and change my diet and life! So far on my own I have lost 10 lbs and I am determined to live my life as a more positive , confident person. I have become a master gardener and now have a new job at a garden center near my home. I am excited to start a new phase of my life and determined to succeed in getting my health and body back on track. I have a great husband to support me and I hope to make some online friends to encourage me in my journey .
