After losing 35 pounds and gaining back 25, I am going to try something new. Hoping this website will help me get and keep those pounds off this time . The people here seem very friendly, helpful and willing to share experiences and advice. The support will help me reach my goal.

Member Since: 6/3/2007

Fitness Minutes: 23,182

My Goals:
My health is the main reason I want to lose weight. Being overweight is very hard on arthritic joints and I am finding out that it is taking a toll. I also have a family history of heart disease and breast cancer so those extra pounds increase my risks for those problems, too. And I just want to feel better in general and not be as tired as I am now carrying around all this weight.

My Program:
In short, my program at this point is simply eating less, eating healthier foods and getting more exercise. Had a knee injury that has slowed down my walking and exercise routine. Hoping to get back to it soon.

Personal Information:
I live in Wisconsin with my husband of 42 years. We have two daughters - neither are married yet. They are perpetual students/teachers. I'm a retired teacher, though I still sub often because I miss the kids.

Other Information:
I enjoy reading, music, gardening, walking, knitting and cooking. I also play tennis when my knees let me. My husband and I enjoy watching movies and sports and heading to the Northwoods whenever we can to enjoy the lakes and fishing. We are both huge Badger, Packer and Brewer fans...guess that kind of goes with being from Wisconsin, eh?
We also enjoy travelling and are always looking for new places to enjoy.

    Hi Mary,

    Nice of you to write! I hope you are able to enjoy a little more time for yourself now that your aunt is placed. And I hope that placement works for her. Good for you for being there for her.

    I am fine. I have been riding my new stationary bike most days. I really like that. I took by real bike out once so far,and plan to do that more. It feels good to be a little more active.

    I am tracking my fitness minutes and being careful with what I eat. I was surprised when I got on the scale yesterday. I would like to loose 9 pounds by end of June. That would be 20 for the year.... Here's hoping.

    Let's stay in touch...and continue to send each other good thoughts.

    Thank you!!! It is nice to hear from you. And once again, we are in the same situation. I have not logged in in forever. I have gained some of my weight back, too. It all fits together, huh?

    I am babysitting, so not home until Wednesday. Then I plan to start riding my bike more often. I have to take this more seriously.

    I think we can do this.... Let's stay in touch as often as we can. Good Luck as you try again!! Good for you!
