My name is Wendy aka horsewoman7407. I'm 57, married, and I'm a bookkeeper for a small manufacturing company near my home. I love horses but don't any, have two cats, a grown daughter and two grandchildren ages 17 and 14. My weight has been a struggle all of my life. At my highest weight about 16 years ago I weighed over 260 pounds. I'm under 200 pounds now. I want to lose the weight for myself, to be healthy, for better self esteem and to feel good in my skin and my clothes.
Looking for a weight loss buddy to share the journey with me.

    I hope that your visit for the funeral goes well and that you get some GOOD out of your time spent with family members you don't usually see.
    I know that today is the funeral and it's raining here. I always think that the angels are crying for those left to cope with a loss. The bright side is.... after rain comes..... emoticon
    Hope you find the rainbow after the sadness!
    Take care! emoticon

    Hello Wendy and welcome to SparkPeople!

    There are a lot of tools here that will help you on your journey. There may be a lot of things to learn here, but all these tools are optional and you can let yourself some time to learn everything.

    I think that one great thing here is the community - There is always someone here to support you. If you need help or information, do not hesitate to ask.

    You will see some testimonies of people are that are above 50 years old and that were able to lose a lot of weight. Maybe you can look into some SparkTeams - I'm pretty sure some people here have tricks.
