I am 54 years old and weigh 334 lbs. I am the heaviest I have ever been in my life. Though I have an active professional life, after work I become a complete couch potato. And of course, I eat out of control while I am on that couch. I am brand new to this website and have not started using anything yet. I am trying to decide if I really have the energy to even begin to lose weight again. It seems starting is the hardest part for me. I have committed to myself that I will keep visiting and learning this website and then decide if I will begin that long journey of losing over 150 lbs.

Fitness Minutes: 40

My Goals:
I first goal is to feel happy and good about myself...I want to like what I see when I look in the mirror. My second goal is to loose enough weight to get out of the 4X clothing I'm wearing and down to a 2x or 1X...then out of the X's altogether. I want to be able to shop in a regular size store. I want to get below the 200 lb mark - something I haven't been able to do in over 40 years. I want to wear a bathing suit, walk on a beach, swim, ride a horse, and love myself again.

My Program:

Personal Information:
I live in New Orleans. I have a wonderful husband of 33 years, two sons and two grand children. I am 54 years old. I am the director of a residential treatment facility for adolescent substance abusers and a therapist with a small private practice. In spite of all this, I know I am missing a huge part of life because of all this fat I am carrying. I want to live life to the fullest.

    Hi Lori! I just wanted to touch base and see how your week has gone. It's been a crazy week for me -- computer hard drive crashed, my back aches for some reason and my food is out of control. Trying hard to get everything back under control and hanging in there as best as I can. I have a new swimming buddy for when I do my laps in the mornings, and the computer tech is coming tomorrow to help with the new computer set-up. Maybe by Friday, I'll be back in the swing of things.

    Let me know how things are going for you!!

    You really are beautiful! It was hard to get started but after awhile it seemed like my mind and body got used to healthy eating and portions that were normal in size. Now craving sweets and especially chocolate is not too bad. Welcome and remember you can do it! I made it under two hundred yesterday (first time in ten years) and it feels so good. I am going shopping for smaller bras and undies and they are not going to be ugly white cotton like before. LOL That should make my husband of forty years look twice. emoticon

    Just wanted to remind you that you have much support and people to motivate you to continue your journey to a more healthier you. I can remember those days of too busy for myself, working and caring for everyone else, now I am on disability, and everyone else is living their lives. So now I focus on myself to a greater degree to get some of my function back. So give yourself the attention it needs and deserves and the love it wants. Remember we are never alone, God is always there . emoticon emoticon
