Hi! I'm Bloomer -- I'm over 50 and FEEL ready for the rocking chair I weigh 306 (down 6 pounds from my highest) and have been struggling with weight all my life. I THINK I've figured out all of the things that have been stopping me and am ready to commit -- really truly commit -- to losing this time.
I'm a member of WW, but wanted an at home diary, and Calorie King seemed the best program for the Mac, which is why I joined. The WW program goals and CKs are very close -- I'm cutting starchy foods, because if I eat bread I do not lose weight, and wanted a program where I could track protein and carbs. I'm not cutting out all carbs, so please don't drum me out , but I am watching them.
I'm single (never married), a highi school history teacher, live alone, used to walk a lot but haven't in years. I've been overweight all my life, but really started gaining after I went through a lot of personal and financial issues about 15 years ago, and have been gaining 5/6 pounds a year ever since. I've got to at least get that off!
I was very excited to find this group, and read the itnroduction threads -- this looks like a great group of interesting people, but there aren't any posts after we all introduce ourselves! I hope the group will become more active.
