I am a 64 yr old granny. I am 288 LBS at the start of this journey. I need to lose this weight due to the fact of CHF,COPD,PAD,and NEUROPATHY. I will soon turn 65 in July. I know that I am very overweight but I am ready to start doing things right so that I can see my grandkids get married someday. I also would love to have great grandchildren someday.
