I am 56 and singe! I was on a medication for depression for 3 years gained over 60lbs in a very short period of time, I am sure many of you have been there! Have since moved from Fla to Ill to be with family and though my life is totally content, the one thing that does not make it perfect is this weight gain. I made up my mind I was going to do it this time and with the help of friends, family and work (we have biggest loser contest going on), not to mention I recently got in touch with a cousin I have not seen since 16, I was 95lbs then, it has given me even more motivation to lose before we meet again. He is a fitness person somewhat. So, the thought of me having all this extra weight and losing it is a challenge. But I am confident I can do it with all this support and meeting others on Sparkle. Good luck to all of you and especially to ME!

    You look beautiful in your picture at the top of the page.

    I am so sorry to hear about your dogs. How horrible!!! It's so sad. I get so attached to my pets. It must be hard to cope.

    Are you still living in Illinois? I bet you must miss Florida at this time of year. I used to visit my mom in New Port Richey in the winter. I live near Texico, Illinois in Jefferson county.

    What kind of diet are you on? I've been doing low carb/South Beach. I had never tried it before but it works for me. I seem to like the food and there is no hunger.

    What are you going to school for?

    Write to me on my sparkpage or send me an email and I will get it faster.

    Add me as a friend and you will have a link to me on your sparkpage.

    I'm really glad you are back. emoticon

    Gosh I have not been on SparkPeople in a long time! I have had so much happen to me this past year and had actually forgotten about the great support and information from Sparkpeople. Gee, maybe I will get back into the swing of things again with it.
    I have cut my hair so I will have to post a new pick. The beginning of the year has not started out good so losing the weight has been pushed aside. Two of my dogs got hit by cars on a non busy street go figure!!! One passed and the other is just sore, this happened in a 10 day period. But going back to school and that will be making things busy for me. I am 57 now so live not only gets shorter but more knowledgeable. Hope to hear from more of you........help me get back into the swing of Sparky people!
    Thanks so much for getting in touch with me. I needed that! emoticon
