Hi, I'm 50 yrs young and need to lose at least 100 pounds. Sad thing is I've done it twice before and always gained it back. My mom used to say things came in threes! So here goes round number three!

I'm currently living in Oklahoma. I was born and raised in Michigan, but married a man I met on the internet 6 yrs ago and he was living in OK. He tried MI for 2 years and hated it. Then we went to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Wonderful place, but way too expensive! Came back to OK and have been here a couple years. We'd love to settle for good one day in either Kentucky, Tennessee, or even West Virginia. I love mountains! LOL

I love animals and currently we have two dogs and 6 cats! All very spoiled!!!

Would love to make friends with others who are struggling. I do have Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure too! (Under a doctor's care, of course)...and really need to get this weight off!!!
