I am a 51 year old retired nurse. (Forced, due to Rheumatoid Arthritis) I have battled weight as far back as I can remember. I have lost large amounts of weight here and there and then fall back into my old habits. It is especially difficult to exercise because of the arthritis but I keep trying to find ways to increase the amount of activity that I do every day. I need to lose the weight for my joints and just to be healthy. My husband is diabetic and needed to lose weight and chose the slimfast plan. So I just follow along. I dont necessarily use the slimfast everyday, but it is my go to when I dont know what I want or when I want that chocolate fix. I basically count calories and use this website for tracking and motivation. We started the first week in January and I have went from 222 to 207 pounds since.

Updated May 2, 2009- the picture is from June 2004 at my highest weight of 284. When I got to 184 I had my DH snap this picture. I have hated this picture but now I am glad I have it to remind me where I have been and where I am going.

Fat Secret is no secret: Google your name. I just found me on the Internet
Ebivr, I can understand your upset. I think things that are posted on this web site should stay here. That site is really weird. It is too bad that you have to make things private because your weight loss is such an inspiration. Keep up the good work.

What Causes Constipation?
My little secret to constipation is sugar free hard candy ( besides lots of fiber from fruits and vegetables and drinking plenty of fluids). Do not use the chocolate sugar free kind they are too high in calories. I eat the Russell Stovers sugar free hard candies, they come in various flavors or something like the Werthers sugar free hard candies. Most of these are low calorie (read the labels) and will get things moving along if you eat enough. (By the way- dont over do it because as the label says- over consumption may cause diarrhea. They are a good way to satisfy those sweet cravings and constipation at the same time.
