My name is Karen and I have been a member of SparkPeople for about a year. Yesterday at a medical appointment my blood pressure was high. I have never had high blood pressure before and would prefer not to take meds. So I decided it was really seriously time to do something about my weight. And make it a permanent thing. I have always had a weight problem and of course been on the roller coaster for years. One way that I know I lose is to cut out sugars and anything white. I lost a lot on Somersize but as soon as I stopped I gained most of it back. So I know where my weakness are. I need the will power to stick to a plan.
I live in Texas part of the year and Aruba the other part. I have 3 beautiful grandchildren and a new one on the way. I am in love with a wonderful man that loves me just the way I am. He is fine with me losing, doesn't want me to gain anymore, but doesn't complain about the way I look. So at this point in my life I want to do it for myself. I am sure there are a lot of people out there that have very similar stories to mine and I hope to find some positive encouragement.
These are the stairs I have to get up and down without dying(LOL).
