The worst photo of me EVER! My hopefully "before" photo--March, 2014 on vacation in California





Christmas Eve 2013; on my way to my heaviest ever. In the 230's here.





My dog Nelly! On a hike 8/24/2014 a little over 20 pounds down, and with Nelly to hide behind

My name is Lisa and I am 55 years old; at my highest weight ever. I have spent so much of my time in the past decade ineffectually dieting, and losing 10 just to gain back that 10, and then those 10 would bring their friends......So I am now borderline diabetic, my knees are killing me, I get winded going up 2 flights of stairs, and I figure it is time to use all that information I have gained while NOT losing the weight and this time maybe actually lose it and keep it off.

My Goals:
Hit an all time high weight of 243. I am borderline for Type 2 diabetes. I sat in the doctor's parking lot and cried. That was on April 3, 2014. On April 4, 2014 I started back on Sparkpeople. I have to do it this time!

Walking at least 4 miles with my FITBIT at least 5 days per week, and never less than 3.


Personal Information:
I am from Western Massachusetts where I work as a municipal attorney. I have 2 kids; a son who is 25 and a 27 year old daughter. My son is living with us for a short time while working and saving $$ until he figures out his next move, and my daughter is living in L.A. (too darn far, that is where she is...) Happily married for 29 years to the best guy in the world. And I must mention my wonderful dog, Nelly, who always is ready to walk with me!
