I just turned 50 years old and I'm going back to school for nursing. I am also overweight and tired of it! I have been on so many diets and I really just want to get rid of this weight for good. I am to the point now where I really just need to get serious. My blood work came back with elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Not super high, but I do not want to go on medication when I can do this myself! Plus, my joints are starting to give me trouble probably because of the extra weight. With my nursing career ahead, I really need to be in better shape to take care of others.

I just joined Weight Watchers and my daughter also told me about this fantastic site. We are doing this together, which will be a big motivator!
