I am a Texas gal in her early 50’s who needs to lose exactly half of her weight. I have become tired of feeling terrible, not being able to climb a flight of stairs, walking around the grocery store gasping for air, not being able to wear pantyhose or really cute shoes! It isn’t about looking good anymore; it’s about feeling good. It isn’t about not being an embarrassment to my family; it’s about being alive to take care of them and feeling energetic enough to do things with them!
I can’t say I’ve always struggled with my weight. The most I ever weighed before age 32 was 125 lbs (I’m 5′ 6″ tall) and that was after the birth of my 4th child. Before the age of 25 I even had doctor’s wanting me to gain weight. I never understood why fat people let themselves get that big or why they didn’t just lose weight. Then I hit 33 and started gaining for no apparent reason; I wasn’t under any real stress, I wasn’t depressed, I wasn’t eating more or differently, and according to the doctor I didn’t have any health issues behind the weight gain.
I have a dear Hubby in his early 50’s who needs to lose 120 lbs. We are doing this together, so come join us on our weight loss journey!
