Start Weight:(23 Sep 09) 238.1 lb
Current Weight:(22 Aug 14) 254.2 lb
Goal Weight:242.5 lb
following: The South Beach Diet
performance: losing 5.2 lb a week

Retired and living out in the sticks
2 daughters and 1 son who is addicted to drugs and I haven't seen for about 5 years
I've been overweight all adult life
My oldest daughter had breast cancer and a radical mastectomy and OH was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma last year so life has been stressful. Both are well now. I am determined to lose weight for youngest daughter,s wedding in June 09. I'm not going to be a fat 'mother of the bride'.

UPDATE - March 2012
Sadly my husband died April 2011. Have put back almost a couple of stones, but am now determined to get back on track

VERY IMPORTANT POST
I don't know whether this is a universal problem but I'm in the UK and if I put my user name and fatsecret in the search box I don't get anything up at all concerning me or my journals.
