I am 56 years old, married, with 3 adult daughters, and 4 beautiful granddaughters and 2 handsome grandsons. I am a medical assistant in a busy family practice and love getting to encourage my patients to make better choices for their health. In January 2014 my daughter and I joined the local gym and began working with a trainer. I go to the gym 5 days a week and ran my first 5k in September 2014. On July 4th I ran my first 10k - the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta. I am still 8 pounds away from my goal - I reached my goal weight last September, but gained 8 pounds during the winter and just can't seem to get it off. So here I am again, looking for encouragement and new ideas.

Your comittment to plan, plan, plan is just the right thing to do. Thanks for the honesty you showed despite yur disappointment at the scales. You are doing great and there is no time limit to reach your goals just the comittment to keep on going. Congratulations on the new grandbaby! I hope you share some pictures when it arrives. I don't have any grandbabies yet and love to share your excitement. I'll get my turn one day and then you can share the excitement with me.
