I am53years old and a caregiver for elderly and enjoy people. I like to read spiritual books and I also am a Grandmother to a7 year boy. I am looking so forward to losing weight and meeting others that are trying to do the same this year. I like to walk and ride my bike. I begin my journey back on, been fighting a battle of illness and had to drop out. I was diagnosed with mild Cognative imparement 3 years ago now so I am no longer working but volunteer for a senior center calling bingo.

    Thanks for the friend add. I have added you as well. It is a struggle, as I am about 16 pounds over goal weight. It's been more than a year since I put it all back on and I keep vacillating between 14 and 18 pounds over goal. So I know I can be consistent in maintaining if I could just drop it to begin with! I love to cook and eat, and I travel a lot. So many things revolve around food. It is a constant battle for me. I know I can do it because I did and held my own for about 2 years. I keep soldiering on!
