performance: gaining 0.4 lb a week
I'm a 43 yo mother of two girls ages 13 and 10. I lost 53 pounds from April 2009 through February 2010 by doing a combination of Weight Watchers and exercising (I started cycling after not being on a bike for 20 years!) I got down to about 116 pounds which was very difficult to hold, and ended up maintaining my weight at around 134 for about a year.
Then I hit a hiccup. My 13-year-old daughter got cancer. She had a liver transplant in February 2013, was cancer free but her cancer returned late in 2013. She's been in and out of the hospital with surgery and follow-up since then - no chemo yet but that's likely coming soon.
I have gained all my weight back.
I haven't been on my bike in over a year.
I'm depressed, unhealthy, uncomfortable and back in a size 12 (from a size 4).
I need to start moving again. I need to eat healthy again. It's so hard when I live my life from day to day, worried that I'll lose my daughter, but I have to do it. In 2015, I'm going to do it.
