I am 58 and married for 41 years!!!Have two daughters,2 amazing grandsons,2 beautiful granddaughters!!!!I currently live in Columbia,S.C. area.I was a nanny for 33yrs. and absolutely love children,the mountains,swimming ,reading and go to the gym (not lately been sick).Happy to be back on spark,have tried every diet on the planet accept frozen foods and weight lose surgery. Okay this is just crazy ,found out starting weight was 17 lbs. heavier than I thought and so am now disappointed at the extra lbs. but I am going forward my wahoo moment last week I thought I'd gotten down to 10% goal of 27- lbs. to find out its 18 lbs I have lost instead of the 28.7 it would be for true 10%. Okay now July 2016 3 yrs since my first entry on Spark people.I haven't been very successful. I now weigh 258 lbs.started at 287. I had so hoped to get it right. Have roller coastered lowest weight was 244. I have had added health problems had to see a surgeon, found out that most of my health problems have been created by being overweight for the most part of 40 years. Was suggested to seek Bariatric help. So I am about to undergo bariatric surgery and save my health. Have had to do a lot of research and press determined testing for the surgery by my insurance company. Have 2 more weight management classes to go to before scheduling actual surgery. I am very anxious and hopeful that this will be a completely successful process.
