Febraury 11, 1974

Age 23 1/2 - Children born March 27, 1971 & March 16, 1972

147 lbs. - still have some baby weight

Breast 37.5
waist 30.5
Abdmen 39.0
Hips 38.5
L. thigh 22.0
L ankle 4.5

By 1977, I was starving myself by eating cabbage soup and working out many hours each day, working full-time, and swimming 10 laps in back yard pool. I got down to 125 lbs. and a size 8.

By 1991, I had my 3rd child at age 41. I've never been able to fully remove all the weight I gained in pregnancy. I did get down to 168 in 2002, but with a back injury in 2008, and confined for several years, the weight has been impossible to get off.

I went through menopause at age 56 in 2006. The highest the weight went up to was 224, but I've been around 203 - 213.

I need to get it off. I don't want to starve myself but I know its the ONLY way to lose.

Starve meaning depriving of calories down to 1000 for at least 6 months. I can do it.

213.0. current stubborn weight. I was 209.1 a few weeks ago and I had some WHITE food that blew me up like a balloon.

Goal - 48 lbs. in 6 months.

    Not sure starving on 1000 is healthy, but I suppose that depends on your size and activity level. I found that cutting down that drastically just made my body go into starvation mode and I stopped losing weight. I've found that eating a healthy balanced diet eating entirely healthy food and no junk food and weighing everything so I don't overdo it unintentionally has been my lifesaver. Good luck and keep Sparking! emoticon
