performance: losing 0.5 lb a week
Middle age, caucasion, married, two grown sons. Two dogs. Very ordinary. Have had a weight 'fight' for a long time. Have been real thin, 8in my younger days, and have been real heavy. Prefer thin, but it's hard to maintain. In Aug. 06, I finally gave in and went to a physician, scared I was developing diabetes. Had a full physical, even a colonoscopy! I was 268 pounds, 5 foot 3 inches. I'm not diabetic, but it put the fear of diabetes in me, and I vowed right then and there to do something about my weight.
Today I'm still 5 foot 3 inches, (can't do anything about that) but I weigh 170 and am still losing. I've taken some serious control over what I eat. I'm very proud of myself, but I know it is a day by day battle.
