March 2019
I'm a 76-year-old SW Louisiana Cajun. I moved to Houston in 1991, and love living here, one of the most diverse cities in the country, where over 140 languages are spoken and celebrated.

I was the Finance Director for two outstanding non-profits, first Crisis Hotline (Crisis Intervention of Houston), and then Neuhaus Education Center. I retired in 2010, and enjoy living a life with no deadlines and little stress.

I started gaining weight after my marriage of twenty-three years ended in 1987. Nothing rapid, an average of 5 pounds a year over thirty years; I just didn't care. Then I woke up one morning, about two years ago weighing 300 pounds and finding myself barely able to function. I have gone from a healthy, physically active individual to a morbidly obese woman who gets out of breath walking 100 feet from my doorway to my car. I want something better, I want to be more like the person I used to be. I'm very happy to be a part of this group; you all inspire me.

I am no longer morbidly obese!

Starting the year at 244.5, down 55.5 pounds since March 2019. I'm very proud of the progress I've made with the help and support of my FS family and looking forward to the new year.

April 1, 2020
One year and 69.4 pounds lost. When I began in March 2019 I was hoping to lose one pound a week, so I am thrilled to have exceeded my goal.

According to the SBMI, I am no longer obese, and am now simply overweight, a nice distinction. Down 73 pounds.

Hi Claire, what exactly are you looking for? I have much more weight to lose than you do, but I'm willing to try.

We have a spammer in our midst!
I've been reporting them, but they keep coming back under new names.

Vegetarians?
Look under groups, I believe there are some vegetarian groups, some may be low carb. I just follow CICO and that seems to be working for me, as there are no food restrictions (I'm not a vegetarian). Good luck on your journey and welcome.
