I have a couple of years before turning 60. I'd like to spend the next 2 years working on getting the weight off. I've been on many diets, and I've always gained my weight back. I know how good I feel when I've lost weight and I want to feel good again. I'm feeling driven to get healthy since becoming a Grandma. I want to be an active part in my grand kids lives. I have missed out on so much of my life already due to being overweight. I feel very limited and closed off being overweight. I'd like to feel alive again.

I don't want to lose weight because then I'll be noticed and greeted by people.
I am terribly shy and about 15 yrs. ago I lost almost 80lbs. Boy, did I get noticed. It was so hard to deal with the attention. Woman that were my friends didn't call to do things or go to lunch
, they said bc they didn't want me to fall off my dieting. I felt kind of lonely. But it was the men that was hard to take. If it was when I was single it might have been fun, but I am happily married, and it was some of my friends husbands that made me mad. Men who when I was heavy never talked to me, but when I lost my weight, the doors got opened, a lot of un-necessary touching happened, like hugs hello, hand on the waist getting around me, nothing really inappropriate but very noticeable. I haven't talked to them since. I've gained my weight back over these years, and those same men are back to not giving me the time of day! People are weird! I don't know if this is what you were talking about but that my observation!!

Family, food, and fifty five steps!
I forgot to mention, What was an eye opener for me was that when I saw some of the astronomically high caloric dishes, I just saw foods that were going to make me feel horrible, and set me back. For the FIRST TIME, I valued myself and all the hard work I have put in to becoming healthy. Growth.

Family, food, and fifty five steps!
Well, I survived our family wedding get away, unscathed! It was great meeting up with dozens of extended family members, which is always a food driven experience! The vacation rental that I had selected, unknowingly had 55 very steep steps to get to the front door. (that definitely made you think twice whether or not you wanted to go back up 55 steps for another cookie!)
I packed my own food hoping I could infiltrate some good clean food into some of the expected high caloric, high salt, and always high sugar foods that would be served! Can I say loud enough "PROUD OF MYSELF", I did so good, I ate my things and only a few tiny 1" pcs. of some of the old favorites. I think between the 55 front door steps, and me mentally calculating some of the foods, I manuvered my way around the loaded calories without really going off the beam! if you know what I mean!

I weighed in...and... I didn't even gain an ounce!! Yeah! Had a fun exhausting week end and survived!!
