connielynn doesn't have much here yet. Stay tuned.
I am 54 years old. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for almost 39 years. We both are going on this diet. I was overweight as a child, lost the weight during my high school years, but added 130 pounds since I was first married. My husband and I both wore size 28 waist jeans when we got married. He has almost 100 pounds, too. I have lost & gained weight repeatedly through the years. I have typeII diabetes. We both have high blood pressure, high cholesterol & high triglycerides. Four years ago my husband was diagnosed with emphysema. He has the lungs of a 99 year old. At that time the diabetes was out of control badly. I chose to have gastric bypass to get a handle on the diabetes. It worked beautifully for that & the high blood pressure, but I am starting to gain the pounds back and I am terrified. My husband wants desparately to get rid of his belly fat, which is where he's gained most of his weight. So...here we go!
