Start Weight:(03 Apr 13) 253.0 lb
Current Weight:(17 Apr 14) 220.0 lb
Goal Weight:149.0 lb
following: Eat To Live by Dr. Fuhrman
performance: gaining 6.2 lb a week

Where to start...I'm 53 years old, retired Certified Pharmacy Technician, married 10 years to my wonderful second husband, and am an insulin dependant diabetic. I have a 25 year old son from my first marriage, and two boxer-lab mix dogs. It seems like I have been at least 100 lbs. overweight my whole life. It made my childhood unhappy, and my teens and twenties were simply miserable. I have started countless 'serious' diets; and once, in my thirties, actually lost about 100 lbs. on my own.(It came back) I even went to see a bariatric surgeon to try to get a gastric bypass.(Didn't work out) I have been on everything from Atkins, to Richard Simmons, to Weight Watchers. But now, I think my eyes have finally been opened...my brother-in-law (same age + 100lbs overweight) just had a SECOND stent inserted in his heart. This really scared me, and now since June 8th, 2012 I am following "Eat to Live" by Dr. Joel Furhman. I'd love to find a few folks to make
new friends to chat with and help in any way possible. I hope everyone the best of luck in what ever works best for you. P.S. I have been addicted to General Hospital for 40 years...and counting. :)

My FS journey, as told by dogs
Sitting alone at the computer while hubby was fast asleep and snoring, I was laughing and woke him up! Too bad, the laugh was worth it!

What are some of your embarassing/emotional/eye opening reasons for loosing weight?
My moment was when my husband and I were having breakfast in a small diner and the waitress reconized him (from a few years before) and said, " Oh, is this your mother?" I'm younger than he is.
