I have always enjoyed an active life; however, after turning 50 the weight starting sticking. I gained over 25 pounds within 12 months. I knew I needed to make some major changes to stop the weight gain. So, I joined this site to talk to like minded people fighting the battle of the bulge. I plan to do whatever it takes to lose 50 pounds, radically changing my diet, regular exercise, personal trainer, etc.
I know I can do it!

Let's keep moving together in 2018!
