I'm a 50 year old female, who needs to lose 100+ pounds. Like most people in my situation, I've tried a number of different diets and ways to lose weight, often gaining back more than I lost. I've been a "normal" healthy size a couple of times in my life, but since giving birth to my three children, I have primarily gone up in weight. I do little activity now, would probably describe myself as kinda depressed, experience a lot of pain and exhaustion, and am nervous about this whole weight loss/get healthy thing -once again. I am also pre-diabetic.
What has motivated me this time? I realize that time is running out. I want to see my children grow up and I want to be around when my children have children- to be there for my grand kids (this has not yet occurred - and not quite ready for it -yet). I'd like to feel better - happier.
I hope this is it. I really do.
I'm too embarrassed to show my face so I'll probably just do a body shot. But I do want to post pictures of myself to help motive me - to push me to action. it goes....(pic to follow)
