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.

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!

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!

Hey Lisa girl! How are you doing? What's the weather doing? We've been having snow again but the sun keeps peeking out a little today... every time I see it I get very excited & then the clouds block it again :(

Anyway, you have a wonderful weekend!

Awe..thanks so much Lisa! You know what...we want you here too and never, ever underestimate your importance here, for you and for us! We all feed off one another. It is important to know that we all have struggles. It is fantastic to hear about successes and is necessary to have a good support system. If I weren't here right now, I'm afraid I wouldn't truly have that. My husband is amazing and so supportive of things but his relationship with food and emotions is completely different and he cannot give me what I truly need to keep going. YOU do, SPARK does and I want to give that back. I know many of us feel like walking away when we just aren't ready or just don't feel successful, that is when we need to be here the most! Hugs...Nora

Your blog hit home with me.... I am from northern MN and I hate the darkness and cold of January and February. I struggle every year. One thing I do is spend 5 minutes in a tanning booth a couple of days a week just for the light and heat. It was suggested by my doctor. I don't actually tan but it helps me get through the tough months of darkness & cold.

I turned 60 last month & I want desperately to go into retirement healthy. I used to be so healthy and so much thinner. Let's do this.
