Hi...It's August 2012, time to get serious for real.
I'm 55, mother of 2 gorgeous girls & grandmother of 3 beautiful granddaughters. I've been divorced 17 years, and am currently single. I let myself go in all ways and now must do some serious damage control.
I live in Phoenix, Az where it is really hot. Want to move to greener pastures for retirement, but stuck at present. The mild winters however do make for pleasant outdoor activities.
My weight has been an issue since I was 6 and completed 2 years of corticosteroids for a mysterious ailment, possibly transverse myelitis. There were 3 times that I dieted down to a nice size (10) but it always came back with gusto++. A year ago I was at top weight abt 280 and totally ashamed of myself.
I'm determined to get healthy, fit, and not spend the rest of my life alone, fat, and unhappy. I work out at the gym 3 days a week, am getting back into bowling, and eating the best I know how.
This site is a miracle, and you all are truly inspirational. I feel blessed each time I log in. I need some buddies, so send me a request and we'll help each other along our journeys.
