I joined SP in Feb 2006 and then "life" happened & I stopped coming here. I was 242 (aprox) when I joined in 2006.

My highest weight was 267.5 I am 5'2". My goal weight is 150. At goal a total of 117.5 lbs will be gone!

I am 50 yrs old now & remain married ;)

Last summer (2011) I was down to 208 and then I went off plan & regained most of it back. Going up to 259.0 again. Today I am at 247.9 (8/25/2012)

I am using the insulin resistance plan. I used it before and loved it. It fit right into my life style. It is high protein (lean), no white rice, bread, pasta etc and low fat. Lots of vegs and some fruit. If you want to know more about this plan feel free to contact me.

I have a serious back injury & last spring had both of my knees replaced, so getting back into exercise is going to be a challenge.

*EDITED/UPDATED On 11/12/12* I have been going through a really rough patch with some personal issues and am sad to admit I have ate my way through them. Putting me at a all time new high weight as of10/31/12 at 276 lbs. I weighed in today 11/12/12 at 270.7 The "rough patch" is not over & I am so scared I will start to eat bad again & regain these 5.3 I've lost.....sigh This weight issue is going to be with me forever :(

    “You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.”

    A Quote from -- Erma Bombeck

    You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.

    Patriotism is great but WATCH THOES CALORIES !! emoticon

    I'm better than I used to be. Better than I was yesterday. But hopefully not as good as I will be tomorrow.
