I'm 54 years old today. I feel the healthiest I ever have in my life!

I'm living the lifestyle, eating & exercising like the slim, fit & healthy person I want to be; by body can't help but catch up, because I'm worth it, and I deserve it.

I've been painfully aware that I've lost large amounts of weight before, and gained it all back and more! I'm embarrassed I was 202 in 2007, 168 in 2008, 209 in 2010, and now I'm at 174. I want people to know that I gained 40 pounds, ...

I want people to know that I gained 40 pounds, even though I was on SparkPeople. I know I'm not alone. Regain happens to other people, too. I feel for them, and want them to know that with the right kind of tools (mostly mental) you can lose the weight for the last time.

I'm 54, divorced and have 3 boys: 27, 24 & 16.

My maternal grandma was a gardener. She grew flowers. My dad later got the urge and he grew almost 100 tomato plants every year plus lots of of other stuff. We had a garden plot when we moved here and hubby seemed excited about it. We designed the raised beds to make it easier for me. He got me interested in it. I am good but he is fantastic. When he takes an interest in the garden it looks like one on T.V.

Thank you for your comment on my blog ("A Little Story.") Have a healthy day!

PS: Caren, I'm sorry you're starting to regain but I think you are awesome for admitting it! Thats the first step to getting back on track. Just take it one day at a time and do not give up. What works for me is streaking. I also never allow myself to wear elastic waist pants unless I'm working out, lol. You will find what works for you. I'm here if you need support.
