MY name is Darlene, and I have had issues w/ my weight for my entire life. I was a chubby kid, gained weight after child birth. Lost a ton of weight when I was about 33 - 34 years old. At one time I used to be too thin, people thought, because I was an exercise, running addict. However, times have changed. I had knee surgery, and the death of my mother, and then my mother in law, put me in a funk, and food was the only thing to comfort me. I know walking just 30 minutes a day is a great health benefit, and I have been trying to commit to it! I became a grandmother in 2015, and I am committed to live a healthy lifestyle for my granddaughter, and I want to be around for her a very long time. I once again became a grandmother in December 2019 to a baby grandson.

Member Since: 1/4/2007

Fitness Minutes: 6,899

My Goals:
I'd like to lose about 130 pounds to tell you the truth, but I'll be happy if I can get 90 off, that would make me at a very good weight.

My Program:
With the help of my team, I am going to try to get some of the extra weight off that I have put on since I turned 40. I would love to be 145 pounds again. Let's see what happens.
I hit the big 50 last December, better just swallow down on that reality.

I am having the GASTRIC SLEEVE surgery on June 15, 2016.

Personal Information:
I am from Attleboro Massachusetts.
But currently live Leominster, MA w/ my husband Mark :)

Other Information:
IF anyone in the area needs a workout buddy, let me know! I go to Studio Q in Fitchburg MA

    Hi there! I just re-joined Spark People. I saw your post on the VSG page and thought I would stop by to offer my encouragement. I had surgery 18 months ago and have done very well. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. It was the best decision I made.

    Change the colors on your profile. The pink and light blue together are straining my eyes.

    P.S. I'm down 6.2 lbs this week!
