Tired of the Yoyo-ing and being morbidly obese

I've had weight problems since about 9 or 10 years old (I am now approaching 62), and am so fed up with my weight.
Not only am I super obese, but everything hurts (though getting better as the numbers drop).
I need all the help and support I can get, especially no- or low- cost, as our budget is very tight. I need emotional support most of all.

An update: I had "given way" (I don't intend to look for it, so it's not "lost") nearly 100 pounds since late August 2010, ...

An update: I had "given way" (I don't intend to look for it, so it's not "lost") nearly 100 pounds since late August 2010, but gained back quite a bit; I started to hermit away and feel sorry for myself, I am embarrassed to say. Now getting back on track . I love the low-carb lifestyle I have chosen; it works so well for me... when I work it!

I walk every day now; I have 2 rescue dogs -- they make my walks so enjoyable! I used to walk a few times a week, but now it's every day. :)

When I follow program, my knees feel a bazillion times better, my back (from an old injury) rarely aches at all, and my ankle bothers me so little.

I want to not to not only feel physically well, but good about myself, too!

My Goals:
To lose the excess weight, be fitter and feel better, I want to enjoy Life more and see the grandkids grow up too!
I want/need to get past my emotional eating and get started on losing again! At least I am keeping about 100 pounds off so far, give or take 3-5 pounds.

My Program:
A Low Carb food plan works for me. And I walk every day now, since I got a dog.
I've improved - progressed to a 20 min walk, when before I could barely make it to the corner and back when I started 15 months ago!
As of mid-Jan 2012, I'm waking at least 1 hour every day of the week!

Personal Information:
An American now living in the UK (about 2-1/2 hrs north of London), I feel a pull to both places now.
Very happily married (2nd time), 2 grown sons back in the US, And I am a grandma, too -- but I feel so young! :)

Other Information:
We have our own business -- classic motorcycle parts. Hubby makes custom ignitions, and I run the ebay shop.
We also love to get out, not only on our motorcycles, but out for walks and see the country.
Just wish I could afford to visit my family in the States more often.

Hi! Thanks for adding me as a friend - I have a rescue dog too, but she's a chihuahua and hates to walk! Keep up the great work - you're an inspiration!!!
