I've had weight issues (food addiction stemming from emotional "stuff" -- it had been a way to cope early on, I am sure) since about 9 or 10 years old., I am 67 yrs old, and had been so fed up with my weight for decades.

Not only was I super obese, but everything hurt (though much better now as the numbers have dropped significantly ).

After 13+ years in the UK (I married a Brit in early 2005), I have finally returned to Oregon, USA, at the end of February (2018) -- single. I am thrilled to be back near my family!

My highest weight, as embarrassing as it feels to admit it, was 384, the end of June, 2016. And on 18 Feb, I weighed in at just over 197. ONEDERLAND! Now at 182, I have only 10-15 or so to go, depending on what my 67 yr old body can do.

Having tossed out over 200 pounds so far, I feel a bazillion times better!

Care to join me? ;)

My Goals:
To lose the excess weight, be fitter and feel better, I want to enjoy Life more and see the grandkids grow up, too!
I have been learning get past my emotional eating and keep on losing, and I am much healthier.


My Program:
A Very Low Carb food (aka Ketogenic) plan works for me. And I walk every day now, since I got a dog.
I've improving - vertigo prevents my walking very far or fast, but I get out into the back garden several times a week with my Monster Dog, too.



Personal Information:
I have 2 grown sons back in the US, and I am a grandma, too -- I miss all of them terribly. But I am excited and looking forward to moving back.
