Hi Again! It is March 7,2014. I have been off here for several months, as I just lost interest in a lot of things including myself. By doing this I have managed to regain ALL of the weight I had lost plus added about 10 pounds more. It has got a lot more difficult to walk and do other things that I enjoy. I have decided to get back here and give myself another chance. So here I go.

Hi! I am a 67 year old grandmother who lives for her family. I lost my husband on November 15, 2010. He had a massive heart attack while driving to the grocery to pick up a gallon of milk. I am trying to adapt to life without him. However I was not left alone. I am blessed with our three daughters, one adopted son, two son-in-laws, and five grandchildren. All my life I have been way over weight and have decided that enough is enough. I am going to lose this weight for once and for all. While I realize that there are no guarantees in life, losing weight will make whatever time I have more enjoyable and with less pain. Besides my family, I love to read, to research genology, all kinds of crafts including scrapbooking, cardmaking, sewing and doing whatever I can to make other's lives a little easier..
