Wen's Slow and Steady Journey

I have spent the last 12 years going from a size 7 to a size 28! I have to change that-- my health, my attitude, my self-steem and confidence have suffered.

Time to turn this bus around!

My Goals:
My primary goal is to lose a total 120 lbs give or take 20 lbs. I would like to accomplish this in approximately a year though with my track record, I don't know that I can achieve it.

My Program:
I have begun tracking my intake and calorie burn. I am trying to eat more sensibly though my 'diet' hasn't been bad up to now.

I will/am using my stationary bike several times a week, I have yet to notice a difference which I can attribute to the exercise but I have to believe it will come.

Finally and probably most effective/rapid change is that I convinced my doctor to prescribe meds less likely to cause weight gain. I am truly hoping this will give me the kick start I need.

Personal Information:
My name: Wendy Williams

My Age: 41

My beginning weight: 263

My goal weight: 140-150

I have on son, 22 and one step-daughter 29. My step-daughter has provided 2 lovely grandchildren, 14 mos and 3 years.

My wonderful husband of almost 10 years is handicapped. He has elephantitis, this is a non-curable condition but it also encourages weight gain and he is unable to exercise so it is quite a challenge for him. Of course that tends to make us both lazy. Here's hoping we can change that!

Hi I am Shirley's Mom... I also weigh 263, well 265 this morning. I lived in Sarasota until June, I just moved to Bradenton... couldn't afford to live in Sarasota anymore. I wish you luck and maybe we can visit once in a while for support. I am also disabled, so I know what your hubby is going through, it is hard to exercise when you can't walk, but I can ride my bike and love to do it, so I have hopes of increasing it and I also live in a 55+ community now, and we have a beautiful pool, so I am getting some water exercise too.

I live in Ohio, my mom just moved to Bradenton from Sarasota. We flew into Sarasota and picked up Mom for the marathon, then we rented a van and drove up to Orlando. I just love Florida, but will never get hubby out of Ohio.

Hi there, I typed in my Mom's zip code and found your page, so you must be somewhere in Florida. I am posting because we joined about the same time, have about the same amount of weight to lose, both gained it in about the same time period, and are both 40 something. Godd luck in your journey.
