I have struggled with my weight for most of my life and it gets harder as I get older. A few years ago, my Aunt suffered a stroke and her life changed overnight. She went from an active 70 year old with her own home, car and independence to someone who could no longer fend for herself and had to go into a care home. I made up my mind then, to do something drastic about my health to try and avoid the same thing happening to me. A picture of me holding my baby niece and looking like a fat old lady also spurred me on to do something drastic.

At the time, I was in my early 40s and weighed 19 stone and 7lbs (273lbs) and was very unfit. I joined a gym and went on a low fat diet and lost 9 stone 8lbs (133lbs) over 18 months. Trouble is I got complacent and I am now back up to 16 stone 7 lbs (231lbs). I gave up going to the gym and my eating has gone sadly awry so I am looking for inspiration and support and hope that all you Spark People will be able to help me.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. We do have a habit of thinking there is always another day with our family and friends and that's not always true. I know we would all get tired of mom's phone calls every day or even more than once a day but you never know which call is the last you'll get.
