At highest -410lbs.
At 357 lbs.

My Goal:
Determined to lose over 250 lbs. and be able to have a healthy body for the glory of God. To be more active. To get off of my blood pressure meds. for good.

About me:
I am 50 years young. I have been married for 32 years to my best friend. We were never able to have children (at times I think that is unfortuneate and yet at other times I think it is fortunate). I work full time as a Case Supervisor for an agency that advocates for abused and neglected children. I take medication for high blood pressure.

Diets I like:
Don't like any diets, but what has worked for me in the past is watching my calorie intake. Eating healthier foods. Staying away from empty calories. Eating more foods with monounsaturated fats for better metabolism (MUFAS). Keeping focused on the goal. And most of all, prayer!

Workout of choice:
I don't work out, but try to walk if able to.

My plan:
Eat smaller portions, make healthier choices. Eat more vegetables and fruit, cut out all sugary candies and such. I already quit drinking sodas completely. Drink more water and tea with lemon, no sugar or sugar substitutes.

I need the most help with:
Staying motivated. Resisting overindulging on my favorite foods. Keeping my portions smaller.

Additional Info:
In my spare time, I enjoy scrapbooking, painting, desktop publishing, reading and writing. I also sell sterling silver and fashion jewelry. I am trying to learn to play the guitar. I like watching the HGTV channel to get ideas on decorating my house. I have been a Christian for over 19 years now, and would never go back to my old life.
