I am a 68 yr. old who has carried 100 lbs. to much for a number of years. I have had both hyper and hypo thryoidism which has made weight a problem. I have been a widow for 18 years. with 4 children, one of my sons is a survival flight nurse. I have had numerous health issues over the years including a pituitary tumor requiring transphynoidal surgery.
I have been the Queen of a Red Hat group for 11 years. Each of my group is a widow that has experienced sudden loss. We have done many great things, such as sailing on a tall ship. I hope being a part of SparkPeople will lead to my goal of being healthy.
