Congratulations!! You look amazing.

I, too, am 51 and on this journey. I started at 202.4 (not my highest but where I started in January). I am down 22 pounds (tomorrow is my weekly weigh in and am hoping for good numbers) and originally my goal was to loose 50 pounds. That goal has changed and I want my final weight to be 140 so I can be in the "normal" range for BMI.

I was always thin and could eat anything...until I hit 30. My metabolism came to a screeching halt and I did not know how to eat and exercise to keep my weight down. Twenty years later and 50 pounds heavier, I HAD to do something. In October I had a health scare and the doctor put me on meds. I hated that I had done this to myself but still didn't get off my butt.

In January, a counselor at school organized a "Biggest Looser" contest for the staff. I jumped at the chance and hope for the best. I got hooked!! The contest lasted 12 weeks and I didn't win the money, but I won something much more important--my health. I am off one med and am working to get off the other.

Your success shows me that I, too, can achieve my goals.

Thank you for sharing your story.
