I'm a 50 year old female, who needs to lose 100+ pounds. Like most people in my situation, I've tried a number of different diets and ways to lose weight, often gaining back more than I lost. I've been a "normal" healthy size a couple of times in my life, but since giving birth to my three children, I have primarily gone up in weight. I do little activity now, would probably describe myself as kinda depressed, experience a lot of pain and exhaustion, and am nervous about this whole weight loss/get healthy thing -once again. I am also pre-diabetic.
What has motivated me this time? I realize that time is running out. I want to see my children grow up and I want to be around when my children have children- to be there for my grand kids (this has not yet occurred - and not quite ready for it -yet). I'd like to feel better - happier.
I hope this is it. I really do.
I'm too embarrassed to show my face so I'll probably just do a body shot. But I do want to post pictures of myself to help motive me - to push me to action. it goes....(pic to follow)

    I've been thinking about our spark friendship lately and I treasure it. Funny thing is, I don't know your real name and I don't even know where you live! When you mentioned in your blog you are flying to that wedding in Colorado, I thought, "Where are you flying from? What part of Colorado are you going to?" Will you be able to extend your stay for a few days beyond the wedding and do some exploring. I was just in Colorado Springs and Breckenridge in June and LOVED seeing the mountains! How exciting for you!

    Yay for Shredded Wheat! Thanks for the encouragement on my blog and spark page. It's 1:22 pm and so far, so good today. I've made it through 2 meals making good, healthy choices! I'm meeting a friend after she gets off work for a nice walk in Forest Park in St. Louis. It's a bit of a drive for a walk (40 min. one way) but walking with Deb worked before and since we stopped we both cut back on our walking. Deb works in downtown St. Louis, but lives in O'Fallon, Illinois so we don't live near each other either.

    Between your encouragement, and Deb and I walking together again, I'm feeling good about today! One day at a time! I hope you've had a healthy lunch and plans for a healthy dinner and a little fitness if possible too. Here we go!

    And YES, WE CAN DO IT! emoticon
