UPDATE: I've put on 20-25 pounds since losing 60#'s. Feel terrible about myself. Nothing fits as I gave all my "big" clothes away. NEED to get back to gym and walking daily. Why is life getting in the way?? I watch what I eat but without going to the gym like I use to, the weight keeps coming back on.

There was a lot of stress in my life and it seemed like my body was falling apart. Went to my doctor, saw a nutritionist and a friend told me about this website. I LOVE it!! Keeps me responsible as to what I eat. I started logging in August 2012 and have lost 30 pounds by middle of November! My goal is another 20-30 pounds by June 2013 when my son gets married!!

UPDATE: I was at my goal by the time of my son's wedding but have since gone down hill and have put 20-25 pounds back on. NEED TO GET BACK TO GYM 3 DAYS A WEEK AND WALK DAILY!!!

Why does life keep getting in the way!!!

I also recently started walking again and want to continue walking whenever I can fit it in, instead of watching too much tv!

    Thanks Cindy. Finally slept last night for more than 2 hours. They said it would a month before I'd get any good sleep. Have to sleep on couch sitting up with leg propped up on ottoman. Slow process; not what I was expecting at all.

    You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

    Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

    Again, Congratulations Beautiful!
