Hi! My name is Rene', I am only barely 5'1.5" on a good day and my twin 13 year old daughters are already 4" taller than me. So, needless to say I am short and of course I have been chubby all my life as well. These have always been my challenges. 4 years lost lost 85 lbs and met my goal weight (yeah!) with Weight Watchers and have gotten more fit and active and I love it! However, it is daily still a challenge to maintain my goal weight even though I feel so much better and able to do things I have not done in 30 years! Life happens...injuries that have kept me from working out, being depressed because I couldn't workout, emotional eating that led to gaining weight because I couldn't workout to burn off the extra calories...the list goes on. I finally decided to stop this roller-coaster now and start a new with Spark People! This is great to have a Spark Page and support from other Spark Members! I have set a new long term goal and even if I don't meet it, at least I am working out again. Since hurting my back/hip/sciatic nerve in May, I now have to start over and workup slowly to being able to run the 5K again. I am excited to feel better, eat better and make good choices everyday!
