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 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 feels wonderful!   When starting, I honestly felt zero confidence I could ever be 145 pounds again. It was just a dream that seemed unattainable!  I have considered trying to reach 140.  However, after putting on quite a bit of muscle from working out regularly (I am 5'8" and have a large frame), I've pretty much decided I am satisfied with my current weight.

I am 48 and married to my love now for 28 years.  My five children range in ages from 17 to 24. The oldest is beginning her master's studies and the youngest finishing up high school.  I was home school teacher for 20 years to all 5. 

Without a doubt, I could never have managed to reach and 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.
