A child, a diagnosis of PCOS, moving with my husband's career, not eating right or exercising regularly, has caused me to gain weight. I avg. 185-195lbs. In 2007, I had lost 25lbs but gained it all back. Add the stress that each move has created; especially this last one in 2010, I got to be my heaviest at 210lb(100lbs gain from highschool in 20yrs). I said that if I ever reached 200lbs I would give up but the contrary happened, it motivated me to get back under 200lbs. I am on my way down and will keep going! (and the Lord willing we may get to stay here for awhile, at least until I can get to my goal!)
We found a health program in Sept 2014 that has helped me and my husband get healthy!! He's off his prescriptions and lost 70lbs so far, I'm off of mine and have lost 30lbs. We feel great!! My PCOS won't plague me anymore!!

Personal Information:
I am a homemaker and we homeschool. I'm past the big 40 now, not sure how to think about that, at times I don't feel like it and other times I feel older. We have only one child (a teenager now) do the the fact I have PCOS, which was not what we planned so that also adds to my moods and stress.

Other Information:
I live in the US and I used to live in the mid south now I live in the mid north.
My husband's job has caused us to move a lot and it is stressful because it changes out of the blue and he gets transfered or laid off. With this comes a lot of stress and moves.
We love being outdoors, hiking, fishing, and just being outside.
We also ride motorcycles.

    So good to hear from you! Glad you are staying active and that your husband is helping you too. We all get frustrated at times, but if we push on and that frustration finally passes then we show ourselves that we can do it. The more this happens (the more pebbles we try not to stumble over) and the more we prove this to ourselves, the day comes, we find that we have climbed a mountain. Something we once thought impossible! I know I'm using silly metaphors, but I find comfort in the imagery of words :)

    I hope you have a great day!

    I have to see my doctor today and I know I will have to bite my tongue! I thought all the bad doctors were on an island, commanding ridiculous amounts of money! The Island I refer to is UK!! Hope you have a good day and don't give up! emoticon

    Thank you so much for the all the great info! I don't think you came across as a know it all, just knowledgeable! I am doing the cardio side of things, but need to change to an interval style, right now more running distance. But need to get even stricter with the diet I think.

    Thanks again and even though you say if you had stuck you would be there, well life does get in the way i know that, but you have no doubt learnt from things. The most important thing is though you are still on spark therefore not all gone to pot!

    Thanks again for the help really appreciate it, take care and good luck with the journey!
