Hi, I am Pam....
Please include a message in any friend requests letting me know how you found me (post, mutual friends, etc.). Otherwise I will probably decline the request.
Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use. ~Earl Nightingale

I am 46 yo and 5'8". I have lost weight on Weight Watchers several times, but have always gained it back and then some extra pounds when I have stopped.
I started seeing a weight loss coach in the health clinic at my job. She suggested that MyFitnessPal would be a good tool for me to track what I am eating. I have used MFP during my entire journey this time and it has been a very effective tool for me :)
I am a mom of a 20 yo. Now that he is older, I have time to dedicate to myself again. My husband is very supportive and will help me on my weight loss journey.
My new mantra is "Keep on Keepin On". This is to remind me to be persistent and to keep on working on building a healthier/happier me no matter what...

Why I want to get in shape
My number one goal is to get healthier. I have IBS & Fibromyalgia and I am hoping that eating better & exercising will help relieve the symptoms. In addition, I would love to lose weight and be able to fit into smaller clothes. Lastly, I want to gain the confidence/self esteem of the 60+ year old women at the Nude Beaches that just enjoy themselves and could care less about the wrinkles, rolls, or anything else that is on view for anyone who looks their way.. lol... (new goal--go to a nude beach on 50th birthday--5 years away)
- Feeling better and healthier.
- Being able to enjoy many years to come with my husband and son.
- Being able to go on amusement rides without worrying if I can fit or not.
- Making my son and husband proud of me. As well as being proud of myself :)
