Members profiles:
56 and way too fat, borderline BP etc. Literate movie-lover, gardener, beader, like to travel and enjoy fine conversation, exotic places and company of dear friends. Have ridden a 25-50 pound roller coaster all my life in about a five-year cycle. Had major abdominal surgery a couple of years ago immediatley following earning a PhD (12 year plan, school PT while working 1 or more F-T jobs) and losing my last parent. Had post-surgical infection leading to an incisional hernia which makes my big belly even bigger. It has taken me two years to get back to feeling like I can tackle weight and I was at the highest I've ever been. Have lost about 10 pounds but put a LOT back on over the holidays. Really feeling the changes following the hormone crash--less resiliency in muscles and joints, seems slower to build muscle.

i have lost 30 since nov. 04. but this last year it seems i just keep maintaining. I am a daily walker, ussually 2-3 miles.
