40 years ago, I was a size 12. Don't know if I can get to my goal, but have to try!

This was 25-30 years ago and I'd give anything to be back down to this weight.

64 years old with several health issues including obesity. There was a time when I could walk 6 miles a day; I was a terrific swimmer and water skier, horseback rider, hiker, bowler. Now I've gotten to the point where not only are there a lot of things I can't do, but I've let my self get to the point that I've lost interest in it all. I have to change my lifestyle or my life will be shortened considerably and I don't want that.

Member Since: 8/26/2015

Fitness Minutes: 115

My Goals:
I must lose weight, not for my son or anyone else, but for myself. Goal is to lose 100 pounds (123 to be precise).

My Program:
These are all goals as well, and I intend to change them as I get closer to my goal:
1. Go to the gym at least 3 days per week (membership is already paid and they're open 24/7 - no excuse).
2. I've been changing my eating habits over the last several years and now it's time to ramp it up.

Personal Information:
My childhood in East Chicago, IN. Moved to Louisville, KY at 16. Moved to Denver CO at 28 and made it my home for 30 years and moved back to Louisville in 2010.
No longer working but on disability which accounts for a good deal of weight gain. The rest has been plain old frustration.
- My name is Laura Anderson but the majority of people I know call me "Max".

Other Information:
- I enjoy photography, especially portraits.
- I enjoy and spend a lot of time with crafting: polymer clay, gourds and drawing top the list.
- I enjoy reading good historical novels, non-fiction, nature and wild life.
- I enjoy motorcycles and hated when I finally gave up my Harley.
- I also enjoy horses although I can no longer ride.
- I enjoy people watching.
