Hi Peggy,

We have some things in common. I am certified to teach special ed, but don't have a job. I also like antiques. My husband and I use to antique a lot, but I had a baby three years ago which slowed that up.

Hi, I am a Peggy too. 48 years old, married, kids all grown up,have 4 grandkids.
Been overweight most of my life, have lost it all once, 25 years ago. Took me 23 years but gained it all back and a few more.
I am going back to college for a career change. For the first time in my life, I don't have to work, its an option. So I am taking time to get healthy and rebuild my life.
Good luck to you. I am sure you will find lots of encouragement and accountability here in all forms.
Blessings
Peg

Greetings, gang. I'm Peggy, 60, diabetic & have mild Parkingson's Disease (that means I have shaky hands often, but can still walk & exercise even if I don't feel like it!). I've battled my weight forever and am usually 20-25 lbs. overweight.

I've owned an antique shop for over 20 years, manage estate sales and am a certified antiques & residential contents(i.e. personal property) appraiser. Before the shop I taught special education. I'm a cat lover and am adopting 2 new cats today for my shop.

Have been working on my weight again since December and am down 8 lbs. now. Exercise is the last thing I want to do, but make myself do it since I know my metabolism won't burn anything unless I exercise. I also have to watch exercise and insulin to handle lows.

Found Spark People watching Oprah's most recent weight loss wonders show. Best site on-line. I'm impressed.
