To reach 199 lbs - onederland!
To reach 196 lbs - 14 stone.

And then: to reach 152lbs - "normal" BMI for 5'5.5" height.
Eventually reach my lowest weight of 138 lbs again (that was me in late 2007/early 2008 - that is middle of "normal" for my height, and means my clothes fit well).
My most recent health challenge was breast cancer in 2011. I had surgery but no chemo or radiation. I am a member of Inspire Health integrative Cancer care clinic using therapies for body healing e.g. acupuncture, diet, meditation, exercise etc. My background is nursing; author; Cordon Bleu trained chef, which incorporated live and media shows back before cable was established. I am now enjoying a new, full life in retirement, and trying to attain optimum wellness.
