Hi, my name is Edna and I live in sunny Florida. I can't stand cold so this is a good match for me. I have been heavy since
in my late 20's and it has been a constant battle of the bulge ever since. I have four children (Shirley 48, Bill 44, Jim
42 and Nancy 31) and 6 grandchildren. I lost within 3 pounds of all my gains during pregnancy before leaving the hospital,
so I can't blame pregnancy on my weight. I can kinda blame it on toddlers and working full time. *grin* I never ate regular
meals and was always eating on the run, except for the evening meal which I call supper (so many call it dinner but to me
that is the noon meal!) This was a family event, quality time where we shared our day. I have been a diabetic, since my youngest
daughter was born and that even makes it more difficult to loose weight. I am also disabled (arthritis and fibromyalgia -
PAIN) and can not walk or run a lot. (I used to walk 3 miles a day and ride my bicycle 10 miles a day, so the lack of exercise
really affected me.
I have been on at least 1000 diets and have lost way over 1000 pounds and always gain it all back, plus more. This is why
I have to go on a woe and wol. (way of eating and way of living) that I can stick too. I like to think of it as healthy eating,
not a diet.
I am also finding ways that I can increase my mobility, my caloric requirements are really low so I have to increase my exercise.
With the support of my fellow Century Club Members, I know that this time will be a huge success and I will NEVER gain it
