[font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3][color=#000000]I am 58 years old and weigh 365 lbs, [size=3]I am a mother, grandmother, wife and great friend, and I am a professional. [/size]I have dreams and expectation as if I were 20 years old. But I am realistic and I do know it will not happen if this weight stays on me.[/color][/size]

[size=3][size=3][color=#000000]I started working when I was 11 years old. I remember it well because even then I was overweight and because I looked much older I was able to obtain a summer job. During my school years I remember always saying to myself you are smart, beautiful so this weight is just another obstacle that you will overcome. Little did I know it would be a [b]l[b]i[/b]felong battle?[/b] The question is why? Why can’t I control this one element of my life? I begin to think it must be a [b]missing link [/b]here? [/color][/size][/size][size=3]What’s different this time, I have great wisdom and knowledge to really understand if I [b]continue to do what I have always done I will get the same result[/b]. And die earlier than I would have if my weight was under control. So based on these facts, I dare to dream and make a lasting decision for the second half of my life. So it is here my true journey begins![/size][/font]
