I am a 64 year old woman who started this weight loss journey at the end of May 2018. I am a lifetime member of Weight Watchers, which works only if you attend the meetings and follow the program. I maintained a healthy weight through my twenties. When I was in my thirties, I began to bulk up; got down to 117 pounds for my 40th birthday with WW. I began to gain weight and returned to Weight Watchers in my fifties; lost some weight, although not enough. At the age of 58, I contracted a rare (one in every million people) autoimmune disease called Stiff Person Syndrome. It took two years to find a diagnosis and my mobility was and continues to be impacted. I also have Hashimoto's thyroiditis. They say autoimmune diseases like to travel in pairs (such fun). Along with the medications and infusions, my weight ballooned to 160 pounds. I followed Dr. William Davis' Wheat Belly program for a year. I was able to maintain the 160 and sometimes lost three or four pounds. Because the program is so difficult to follow, my primary care physician recommended the standard "Doctor Diet." Amazingly (not so much), I gained an additional 20 pounds. Completely discussed, I began following a program which balances protein, carbs, and good fats. I am almost to my goal and have been thrilled by the support and encouragement as well as knowledge shared by the Fat Secret Community. You are truly my friends.

On a personal note, I have been married to my soulmate for 36 years. He has always maintained a healthy weight and has, literally, supported me through thick and thin.

Stay the course my friends and do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to reach a healthy mind, body, and spirit.

Just thought I would share my home workout area. I love the food pictures, but always seem to come away hungry!
