Hi My name is Raquel, I am new to your group. I am 64 and mother of four sons and four grandkids. I found myself getting heavier after I retired six years ago. I sat around and watched TV all day and felt sorry for myself. My doctor told me I had high liver enzymes and type 2 diabetic so I better loose weight. I started a weight maintenance program in June at 225 lbs. I am down to 195 lbs. I had not been able to loose more weight for a month so decided to join CK as my doctor had recommended. I like the program and I hope to be able to reach my target weight in one year! I am getting used to 1200 cal but my downfall is not getting enough exercise.
