Start Weight:(18 Jan 13) 246.0 lb
Current Weight:(05 Dec 14) 183.0 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: ClassicRocker's own diet
performance: gaining 2.7 lb a week

Officially began my dieting 10/1/11, when I got on the scale and saw I was up to 246.

I am a 63 year old mom of a 34 year old classically trained musician. I am working to get rid of the excess weight I've gained over the last 20 years since I had a total hysterectomy. Hormones and hypothyroidism did me in. Don't let anyone tell you hormones don't affect your ability to lose.

I have a long road ahead of me. Recovering from a stroke I had 9/6/2014. I see improvement in the past 4 weeks and I am learning to be grateful for the little things in life. The very things I took for granted are now gifts.

I am doubly blessed to have the support of everyone on FS. For their prayers and good wishes. May I be here for you as you've all been for me. Blessings. Kathy.

diet "supplements"
Okay.... when I was 246, I tried everything on the market for weight loss. You get desperate and manufacturers know that. I was one with every supplement on the market and those touted by Oz. People seem to believe that drinking green tea will also help you lose weight. So, for me, it didn't and doesn't work. I've been drinking herbal and green teas for about 10 years and still got fat and fatter. My opinion totally.

There is no magic "pill/supplement". If there was, this site wouldn't be here and none of us would be fat. This is where commonsense must prevail. We binged, gorged and ate lousy food for years for whatever reason. Surprise!!!! We're fat and can't expect it to disappear overnight.

Time to learn how to eat healthy, exercise and learn moderation. Instead of eating the whole pack of chips ahoy, just one will satisfy the cravings and urges.

Nothing here is OT other then NM's snow mobile question but we've learned to just pat him on the head and tell him to go sit down, be good or go play with Tika.
