Hi,

I'm Mary. I'm from Milwaukee, WI. I need to lose 60 pounds. I've lost 8 pounds so far and I have 60 more lbs to go. It's only the beginning, but I feel so much better having my eating under control.

Hi,

I'm Mary. I'm from Milwaukee, WI. I need to lose 60 pounds. I've lost 8 pounds so far and I have 60 more lbs to go. It's only the beginning, but I feel so much better having my eating under control.

I havenít been able to get motivated to lose weight until a couple weeks ago. I was working in my mom's garden. I was pulling weeds, and cutting with one of those big clippers. I found myself getting *very* exhausted. With the combination of the extra weight, and my age (50), I got pretty scared. That was the motivator for me.

Iíve been dieting for about 2 weeks, so Iím pretty motivated, but I know thereís going to be challenges along the way.

Right now, I'm looking to get down to my goal weight, which is 150, and start getting more sleep. Right now, I get maybe 5-6 hours of sleep per night, and that's definitely not enough!

I'm counting calories. Not much exercise right now, except I walk 5 blocks from my parking structure to and from work. Also working in my mom's garden on the weekends.

Hey gorgeous. I hope you are fabulous and still kicking it in high gear like us divas know how to do.

Be good to yourself this weekend and treat yourself nice. I'll be having a pedicure as my feet are still recovering from winter too :)

Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my page and I hope your sister''s toe get better. There is not much that can be done for a broken toe but wrap then close to the next toe to stabilize it, with the exception of the big toe. I had a pin and a cast on the foot for 6 weeks. Had a choice between the cast of a boot, I chose the cast because I am too big of a kluts emoticon

Thank you for your comment on my blog "Lessons From My Grandma." That was a really special blog for me. It was really special to hear about other people's grammies as well.

Hi Marey,
Thankyou for stopping by my blog, it was so hard to admit to myself never mind everyone else, but I am glad I did as it help me accountable and responsible for actions, and believe me when I say I was very upset with myself and the last thing I wanted to do was believe I had done it. As for giving up that was never an option!
Congrats to your sister, that is awsome how she is doing (is it possible to send some of her success my way? LOL)
My daughters were play fighting as usual, so I told them the picture that I had taken was going on my page just to show that we are not winners just loosers (weight wise that is, but winners for never giving up)

(Hugs)..............Sherye
