I have gained and lost and gained over 100 lbs 4 times so far in my life, including once since I joined SparkPeople. I need for this time to be the last 100+ lb weight loss. It has been the biggest battle of my life. I am fighting to live.. there is too much history of heart disease in my family.

Thank you to all my SparkFriends! You have stayed with me through good times and bad. I can once again see the light at the end of the weightloss tunnel!!

My Goals:
My longterm goal is to lose and keep off over 100 lbs. My short term goal is to be aware of what I am eating at each meal, since portion control is an issue. I will weigh and measure everything. Also I want to make sure I drink my 8 glasses of water a day. Another short term goal is to give myself a break if I am not perfect on my eating program and to remember that not being perfect does not mean failure.

My Program:
My program is to stay within the confines of the SP plan given to me-1200 to 1550 calories, to exercise a little everyday and to drink all my water everday. I will participate in my team posts. The most important part of my program is to keep a good attitude, no matter what......

Personal Information:
I turn 57 years old this year(2010) and am single. I am a retired Teamster. I live in central NJ and am owned by a 7 year old cat. I love to watch any and all paranormal shows, as well as read paranormal romance/mystery books. I also love science fiction fantasy- especially dragons.

Other Information:
I am sometimes remiss at answering emails. I will try very hard, making it one of my goals, to answer them in a timely fashion in the future. I don't know why it is so hard for me, maybe because my typing skills are very poor.
