I have battled my weight since I was 7 years old. The big battle started at about 17. I weighed about 155 and lost down to 135. That was the start of the yo-yo. I have lost, gained, lost, gained, lost, gained my way up to 280 this last time. This IS the LAST time. I don't think I get another chance, and I'm lucky to have this last one. The 'happy hour' pic in my photo gallery at 280 lbs in 2006. I am starting at 288 as of 12/13. Now down 45 lbs towards the new goal. I am a year later at 243. Wish me luck!

My Program:
I've worn out the 'second opinion' routine... actually at this point now, it's FIVE different doctors who have recommended 1000 cals a day or less, so that is what I am doing, per their collective advice. It worked before, it's working again

    Hi! It looks like we are around the same weight although you have reached your goal before and on your way there again! Yay!!
    I haven't been below 200 since before I had my first child over 20 years ago. I am getting my buns back in gear tomorrow and plan to join a biggest loser challenge this month. Thank you for adding me as a friend. I will be here to encourage you and cheer you on!
