I turned 53 on June 2. All my life I was thin. That is until I reached 45 and had a hysterectomy. I guess I used that as an excuse because now I have reached the beached whale status of 255. Since I'm 5'9" I was able to sort of hide my true weight but there's no hiding it now. I'm fat and out of shape.

I'm back...I am now 54 years old and since getting off track with my Spark family have gained 10lbs back! Still a whale at 238lbs but I'll cut myself a little slack and not call it "beached" whale. Speaking of beach...that's why I'm back. Found out today I'm going to Foley, AL in May and before I dare put on a bathing suit I have got to get to 199 lbs! Wish me luck

Fitness Minutes: 85

My Goals:
To reach the weight where I can feel attractive for myself . WEAR A BATHING SUIT AGAIN, feel good about myself, my body, my health. And maybe a healthy relationship with a man.

My Program:
My program is in the beginning stages but I will continue to use the nutrition guide and take adavantage of all the other wonderful opportunities this website offers. I will begin walking in earnest. I will also learn to eat and cook differantly.

Personal Information:
My name is Linda. Divorced mother of two young men. One 25 and the youngest 19. My oldest son lives close and my youngest still here at home. I became a home owner for the first time 3 years ago so any extra money goes towards trying to make it me. I've sort of become a hermit and don't have much of a life outside of work and home but hopefully as the weight comes off the self-esteem will go up

Other Information:
I love working outside in my yard. It's been a challenge to find flowers and plants that do well in shade because of all the trees I have. I like to vegetable garden but don't have enough sun for a good garden. I like to read suspense, romance and some true crime. I like movies, the romantic comedies are my favorite. Don't cross stitch much any more because my eyes. Like to fish, camp and love to watch nfl football!!

    Haven't talked with you for a while but I just had to say....
    How about our Brett and the Packers? 7-1 and getting better all the time. Very exciting season so far. Let's hope they keep it up. Super Bowl, anyone?
    Hope you are doing well. I am plugging along...not losing a lot yet but trying to get back on track here after a very busy couple of months. Take care.

    Hey Girl,
    I think I see some progress on this page. How are things going with you. You sure got quiet after you came back. I plodding along. Back on anti-flammatory for my right knee, but back to walking after having to sit out for a week.
    Went to my 2 regular doctor's 2 weeks ago and both of them were shocked at my weight loss over the past 9 months. Have a teeth cleaning appointment today and my hygenist is the one who originally told me about SparkPeople so I'm sure she'll be shocked.
    Drop me a line and tell me everything going on with you.

    Okay Little Linda Lady,

    You've got some explaining to do. Where have you been for the last 2 months? What have you been doing all that time? LOL
    Hope you're back t stay, I sure missed you. I'm still keeping on keeping on. Still trying to double my cardio effort each week. Hope to go fishing this week and get some fresh fish to grill. Weath has been whacky here for a while now and it's been too rough to take the boat out. Will try Wednesday.
    Drop me a line and tell me all of what's new with you.

    Hope you got to see Brett break the TD record yesterday. He is unbelievable - glad he did it early in the game and then he and the team settled down and beat those Vikings. Fun to watch and a memorable day. Even my friends here in Wisconsin who aren't really football fans watched the game and are excited today about the records he is breaking and getting close to breaking. Even if the Packers lose a few games now, the season is going to be very interesting and fun. We are lucky to be able to watch Favre play.
    Go Packers!!
