At 47 years old I was 4′-10″ tall and weighed 182 pounds. I was as wide as I was tall!! I had high blood pressure, arthritis and clinical depression. I could not keep up with my 3 year old grandson, and I was very unhappy with my life. On August 19, 2009- I made the decision that I had to make some changes. I found a great FREE website online call SparkPeople.com and I signed up for it. They helped me set up a plan that would work for me. I set realistic goals…and I never looked back. I have learned the value (and enjoyment) of daily exercise and healthy eating habits. To date I have lost 53 pounds and have dropped 4 pant sizes. I am happier than I have been in years. Every aspect of my life has changed. And I no longer take blood pressure or arthritis medication. For me to succeed, it took perserverence, patience, SparkPeople.com and the love and support of my family.
Now I am a new person with new beginnings!!
