My name is Jan and I am a 59 year old wife and mom. My girls are grown but still close... My husband is my best friend and we work and have fun together every day. I live in northern california. I love my my dogs and am very involved in the rescue community. I have basically been over weight since my early 20's with 5 or 10 pounds adding up each year until I didnt want to be fat anymore. I joined here in March of 2010. I lost 70 pounds, then gained some back but I never quit. My goal is to get back to that 70 pound loss and BEYOND! I have gathered so much support from everyone here and from my family, and it helps me every day. I didn't know how fun it could be to lose weight and live my life. My goal is to lose over 100 pounds and I know I can do it. Thank you for reading this and helping me on my way! I like to laugh and I like to have fun. Life is too short not to! I want to make the most of my life and losing weight will helped me do that. Update Dec.1, 2018. My habits have finally caught up with me. I never had bad numbers but I do now. High blood pressure, cholesterol and A1c Blood sugar. I’ve started medication but my goal is to get the weight off and get off these meds. I know I can and I’m ready!

    Hi, I read all your blog entries, they are very inspiring.

    I only started my "healthy lifestyle changes" two days ago, it is reading blogs like yours that gave me the push i needed to start, so thank you.

    Thank you for stopping by my page and leaving a comment.

    Yes, those days of eating in the middle of the night and watching tears fall in the bowl are way over. So sad.

    Like you , I too have a wonderful husband again who loves me no matter what I weigh. In fact when I met him I weighed 316 pounds. I remember telling him I'm huge (we met online) when planning to meet. I did not want him expecting someone smaller...

    Anyways, I'm here for encouragement and support. Please feel free to stop by anytime. Keep on really is the VERY BEST! emoticon emoticon

    You are awesome. I have never been called gorgeous let alone drop dead goreous. You have truly made a difference in my life. There is truth to the cliche "You never know how you may touch someone's life". I know that we have never met but I will be telling this story through out my life time. Again I had to thank you and it has helped me start to see myself that way and give myself my own validation of being gorgeous. I actually went into the bathroom and said Yes I am gorgeous. Thank you Thank you Thank you.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. I'm hoping to take a mini course in using PhotoShop Elements soon. I'm just not able to get the cloning tool to work like it did in the earlier edition. Thanks for reading my blog!

    I'm from Texas too--in Lewisville, north of Dallas.
