I am 44 this year in June and I've been struggling with my weight since I was 20ish. Use to party hard, eat hard and play hard and now I'm at my heaviest 205 and have been trying to get it off for the past 5yrs. Unfortunately whatever I lose I've gained it all back again thanks to my laziness. Got engaged over the xmas holiday in 2005 to a wonderful man I met while I was learning to scuba dive, both of which I never thought I'd ever do.
Honey bunny and I started Bernsteins in January 2007 and I lost 38lbs, but again gained back over summer when I started eating again.
I am today, glad to be here, and trying to make a better me for life.
To fix my midlife crisis I bought a horse..of course. I've dreamed of one since I was 6 and it took me until 40 but I finally got one.
Nobody did this but me, and I give credit where credit is due - don't need a figment of my imagination to "guide me" through it.

    Hi Maggie, sounds like you have been through a lot and the selling of a horse is really tuf my thoughts go out to you in these trying times.
    I looked in your photo album enjoying all you had in there. You really seem like a very out going person with a lot of energy.
    If you ever need some one to talk to please feel free to drop me a post.

    Cheers emoticon
