49. Hi y'all
I had lost about 26 lbs (need to lose 60) but have gained all but 16 of it back. So I am starting almost all over again. I have had a stressful couple of years. I recognized the down turn I was on a serious plateau.

We had a Weight Watchers at Work but the company blew that out of the water saying they had to have a minimum of 20 people (at the same time they were laying off people) and then the program fizzled....

I hope I can find some support here that I can't find at home. My spouse hasn't been supportive of my efforts to lose. And I have to lose this weight this time around because I know of the genetic odds against me.
