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 is wonderful but not easy to maintain. When starting, I honestly felt zero confidence I could ever be 145 pounds again. It was just a dream! It has not been easy to manage the loss over the years. I have drifted up and down some due to a poor response to some serious stress, but the fight to keep fit and thin is worth every effort.

I am 49 and married to my Canadian love for 29 years!  Our five children range in ages from 19 to 26. Our oldest is finishing her graduate studies this spring while her "little" brother is in his first year of undergrad at the same university. Our youngest girl is graduating from a different university this year. Life is busy!  I was home school 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!
