6/7/07 - I live in the Los Angeles area. I have had three sons and I have an active grandson.
I am engaged to a wonderful man. Just recently, I attended a couple of weddings. I found myself trying to hold my jacket closed so people would not notice my stomach. I don't want to do that any more. That is why I am sharing my weight loss progress online. I feel that I will have to follow through if people are watching my results.

1/2/08 - I went from a size 28 to a size 22. I'm making progress.

1/2/09 - Starting over. I now wear a size 26. Read my blogs to see my progress.

5/30/09 - Wedding Day! I now wear a size 24.

1/7/13 Just came back to Spark. I currently wear a size 32 pants and I weigh 342.6 lbs. I am not a happy camper.

Been back on Spark for a month now. I currently wear a size 30 pants and I weigh 328.9. I have a lot of work to do.

3/9/13 - Grand child number 4 is here.

1/7/14 - One year back on Spark. I now weigh 276.2 lbs. and I wear a size 24. I am definitely making progress!

1/06/15 - Two years back on spark. 242.2 lbs. Size 20

1/07/16 - Three years back on spark. 228.6 lbs. Size 18 I am happy that I lost some weight in the last year, but I know I could have done much better.

1/07/17 - Four years back on Spark. 219.4 lbs. I have a few pair of pants in a size 16 but I am also still wearing my size 18 pants. I am really disappointed and happy at the same time. Disappointed because I should have lost more weight. Happy because I'm still determined to lose weight.

My Goals:
My goal is to eventually lead a more active life. I intend to walk on a daily basis and for fun, instead of going to the movies all of the time, I want to go bike riding and skating. But my ultimate goal is to lose over 100 pounds.

My Program:
I still eat what I want. I just don't eat as much. I walk on my lunch break and My husband and I walk/jog after work on the treadmill and we walk on the weekends.

Personal Information:
I am from California, the Los Angeles area. I've had three sons. My oldest is 37, the youngest is 26. My middle child died before the age of 21 in 2001. I have a wonderful grandson who is 17 years old.
I have 2 beautiful granddaughters, 10 and 7. And I have two little grandsons, 4 & 2, and another one on the way.

    I can't agree more. I remember how useless I felt and hated the idea of my mom thinking of me as a disappointment. I see so many people are just don't grasp the importance of independence. It is crazy that things have taken a turn to that in some of society!

    I am glad I didn't offend, it was definitely not my intention. It trips me out to find people that went through similar things and helps remind me how small this world is and that we are truly not alone.

    You are an amazingly strong woman! I have no doubt your reunion will be on your side!

    Man the struggle!! I give you so much Kudos for your strength!!! I always thought to myself if I had had children I had no idea how I would have handled it because I was a mess on my own. I definitely couldn't imagine! Is it wrong that I love your use of "woman child" I know several of those and luckily I don't have to live with them! What matters is that you and your husband have a great communication system with each other, that will help you get through this. Try to go to your reunion and enjoy yourself, you definitely deserve to because you have quite a bit on your plate!!!

    I really didn't mean to put so much on your blog, I just kinda remembered moving home but as I wrote it I realized I was very different from the woman child invading your home :/

    Just wanted to say "hello" and I hope your summer is going well. It's been warm and rainy here in Atlanta so I am really glad I have a gym right near my house. We just gotta do it any way we can. Take care and Happy Monday!
