journey back to a healthy me

I am 52 year old and I am a wife and a mother of 5 beautiful daughters. Grand-mother to 6 beautiful grand-children. I have been keeping 15 pounds from each pregnancy. I have lost the same 60 pounds 4 times now and I am making this the last time. My blood pressure is high and is controlled right now by medication. I would like to lower it to get off said meds. I want to lower it without medication.

I want to lower it without medication.

Update January 11th 2013.

I have spunned out of control. I was having a great journey, going to bootcamp and doing kettlebell classes. Even tough I only lost 6 pounds in 3 months, I had lost a total of 21 inches. Going from a size 22 to a comfortable size 18. Every thing was going great until my stupid accident. Not even in the gym, but at home, turning to open the fridge.......tear of the meniscus. Seeing the doctor was fast and easy ( I was lucky to be recommended to a sports clinic in Ottawa) But the results came down hard. Not only do I have a torn meniscus but I also have very advanced osteoarthritis. The fact that I will be 52 prevents them from going in to fix the torn meniscus. The fact that I am only 52 prevents them from changing my knee with a new knee. Basically, life is asking me to slow down. I have to adjust and it is hard.

Update December 30th 2008.
I have changed my profile picture as I decided to stop hiding behind my cat. :) This is me at 247.5. I have gained back 28 pounds. I am not proud of it but I know what to do.
Starting January 1st, I am back on track.
I NEED to lose this weight, once and for all.
Fit by fifty. That gives me 2 full years to lose 68 pounds. I don't think it is a far out goal.
Update April 14 2009.
I have changed my profile picture once again. I am at 255.
Update April 30 2010.
I am very motivated and doing all I need to do to get to my healthy weight.
