Hi I'm 53 yrs in this world most of it spent overweight. In 1999 I had the Gastric-by-pass surgery went from 269 lbs to 160 in 8 months. it is the best decision I ever made. problem is age and enviroment catches up. I quit smoking 3 times and gained 10 pounds each time. I am 6 yrs quit smoking. my thyroid is functioning with the help of medication. at this time I weight 196 and would like to get down to the 160. surprizingly I look good at that weight. oh and for anyone that doesn't believe it there are people out there with heavy bones and looks are deceiving. when I went in for the by-pass they didn't think I was big enough until they weighed me. I'm hoping my book will arrive within the next week and I'm ready to start in fast. I exercise 45 minutes a day doing a 20 minute mile and another ten minutes on the NuStep which I love I listen to my Ipod- (sheena easton) and put in 2500 steps. then my boyfriend and I play or use the Wii for more exercise in the evenings.
I'm the mother of one and have 6 grandchildren. I love my family and my job. I look forward to getting to know any and all that would like to work together to make this work. more to come.
