I am 49 years old and I have been happily married for 26 years. I have over 100 lbs. to lose. I have not really dieted for over 10 years. On 6/12/12 I had a complete Hysterectomy because I had a soccer ball size cyst in one of my ovaries. I had already been thinking about getting back on a diet and decided to use this as a opportunity to educate myself on how to live a healthy life.

My 50th birthday is next year. I hope to lose enough weight and inches so that I don't need a sit belt extender!!!

My Goals:
I have a long way to go, so I am setting mini goals. I achieved my first goal before my 30 days, my second goal I just barely made by 45 days. My next goal is total 40lbs by 10/12. Long term my goal is that I would get down to the size I was when I got married which was a size 18/20. I have been told by a lot of people that I can better than an 18/20, but I cannot even begin to picture myself as a size 6.

6/15/12: 316 lbs
6/12/12: Hysterectomy
7/1/12: 300.6 lbs
7/11/12: 298.6-reward bike
7/31/12: 292.8 lbs
8/31/12: 283.2 lbs
9/1/12: down 14.5 inches
10/12/12: goal 40lbs
11/1/12: 49 lbs
12/25/12: GOAL IS 60 LBS

    I just wanted to say hi and tell you that even though I've been away from SP for the past several months (bogged down with work and stress) I am looking forward to ending the mighty-year-of-challenges that has plagued me this past year and start fresh soon... I may be still a bit scarce around here for the next little while but I did want to let you know that I've been thinking of you and hope you are doing well in life, in happiness, and in your journey.

    Thank you for the photo compliment! I'm so glad to be able to help. Knowing I can help even one other person helps me to stay grounded and at goal, so thank you!

    Thank you, THANK YOU, thank you for sharing in my good news! I really appreciate you commenting on my "And the Academy Award Goes To..." blog and celebrating this beautiful life with me. It's still hard in a way to believe this is all over and I can finally focus on other things. One thing I know for sure, I would not be this strong, this motivated, and this supported without all of the amazing people here (like you!!) at SP.

    Life is truly a gift. Appreciate what joys and strengths you have every day. Share your happiness with others. Live!
