Well, I've arrived. One more attempt at that big weight loss goal. From what I've seen so far, I'm in the right place. I am a mother of 3, grandmother of two, mother in law to 3. I have raised 3 sensational children into adulthood. I'm proud of myself. I am a widow. My late husband died when my youngest 2 children were just 12 & 14. I've tried every diet out there, I thought! I've had a tummy tuck, liposuction and gastric by-pass. Here I am in all my enormous glory. The two biggest disappointments with my weight loss journey has been giving away my 3 children in marriage and not losing weight to fit into the size 14 dress I bought when I was a size 20. I may have even been in a size 22 at their weddings. My next disappointment was at one of my grand children's birthday parties, other grand mothers were on the floor playing with the toddlers and I got down and embarrassed, I couldn't get up. My eventual outlook was "oh well, life goes on". How pathetic! My children still look to me for strength, a feeling of belonging and a sense of stability. How dare I take that from them. I somehow found this site and am very encouraged in believing I've found my place in the diet world. I have a son in the military who is deploying soon and my goal is to surprise him with a new mom when he returns. I can do that for him, my other children and myself. Can't I??? No more questioning myselves...If he can go to war, I CAN DO THIS!!! Hope I can help make your journey possible too.

My Goals:
Will be ecstatic when I reach my goal of 65 pounds exiled. I want to be another one of my grand childrens grandmothers who can get down AND UP from playing with them on the floor!!! tee hee (not really funny).

My Program:
I'm loading up on fresh fruit to replace my cookies and other sweets. I'm dedicated to walking 1-3 miles a day to start with. Sticking to my meal plans unless I drink a hot and spicy V-8 or xtra fruit.

Personal Information:
From NW Florida

Other Information:
I'm in a real mess physically. My biggest hurdle is having hypothyroidism and taking 13 medications a day. My metabolism is bleak to say the least. That just makes me have to work harder to reach my goals.
