According the the BMI calculator, when I joined in January 2019, I was obese. I was totally desperate. Misery, as a result of my weight and lack of fitness, impacted every area of my life and had for years and years. For my family and for myself, I knew change was needed!

Seven months after beginning this journey, I reached my goal by losing 46 pounds. Being back to my teen/early twenties weight was wonderful but not easy to maintain. I managed for several years, but this year I have drifted up ten pounds over my goal. I have endured some setbacks because of injuries and working more and having more responsibilities. Fitting in all life demands is something I am still trying to learn. I am not giving up! My current goals now are to drop 5 of those extra 10 pounds and get back into the gym multiple times a week! I remind myself sometimes that maintaining a 35 pound loss for years is something I can still celebrate! Being constantly disappointed with myself is not progress!

I am 50 and married to my Canadian love for 29 years! Our five children range in ages from 19 to 26. Our oldest just finished her graduate studies this spring while her "little" brother is in his second year of undergrad at the same university. Our youngest girl is newly married and graduating from a different university this year. Life is busy! I was a homeschool teacher for 20 years to all 5.

Without a doubt, I could never have managed to reach or attempt to maintain my weight and fitness goals without FS. Encouragement, accountability, learning from others, and making friends (both online and now in real life) are the wonderful gifts being part of this community bring to my world. Thank you!
