I am almost 45 ( in April ) and have been very over weight for about 20 years and the last 4 ( total of 24 ) have been obese and am still gaining. Today March 3, 2007 I weighed in at 267.. with a BMI of 48.8

I do have a thyroid problem, I am on meds for it, however it still is not easy to lose.

I also suffer from lupus and severe arthritis from it.

I also have a horrible back due to a injury about 2 yrs ago and I am now very limited as to my ability to exercise. I joined the YMCA and can swim laps and will also try to walk more however slow I must go, and maybe even give resistance bands a try since I am not allowed to lift weights. My back injury is serious and does limit me, but it is time to find out what I can do and stop thinking about what I can't do.

I own a commercial cleaning service - which my husband now runs, due to my back injury. I have taught myself web page design and am starting a business in that and the free lance "how to do/tips/self help" writing field.

Oh yes, I have 4 grandchildren - and 1 wonderful daughter :)

03/03/07 = 267
03/05/07 = 260.5
03/08/07 = 257.5

    Thanks for rejoicing with me! Please keep him in your prayers. It will be important for him to get connected to other Christians for accountability. Our youth pastor is eager to mentor him, if TJ is willing.
