Hi. I am a 67 years old and have been overweight since 1995. The closest I have gotten to my goal weight of 135 (and maybe lower) was in October of 2018 when I landed at 158. Due to health issues and lack of being able to "get back in the rhythm" I am back to about 185, but don't intend to stay there! Starting the 5% Fall Challenge 2020 is the beginning of the END of this weight!

I had my cataract surgery during the Summer Challenge, and the Prednisolone eye drops that I have had to use daily for the last 5+ weeks has raised my blood sugar. I am cutting carbs but it hasn't brought the blood sugar down where it needs to be. Another 10 days and I will be off of them and I am praying that my blood sugar will return to normal.

Personal Information:
Married 46 years to a wonderful man. We are Christians and my faith is an important part of my life. I would not be the person I am today without Jesus and I am eternally grateful to have been born into a Christian family in a country in which I am free to worship, have my Bible, and practice my faith. I am blessed to live in a country in which our laws are based on the Word of God! We have two grown children, 6 grands and a great-grand. Love to cook. Also sew, knit, crochet, cross stitch and do crafts. Read. Play piano, saxophone, and accordion. Write music, prose, and poetry. Had a very hard time when the kids left the nest. Took 13 years for me to get over it. Gained this weight when I got something called Lichen Planuscaused by an antibiotic called Cipro that destroyed all of my gut bacteria

Other Information:
My true highest beginning weight was 227 in Feb of 2011. Somewhere I think there is a picture of me then. If I can find it, it will be my Before Picture. My fasting blood sugar was 116 at my highest weight. Lost 20 pounds in 4 months by just watching my portions but my blood sugar didn't change. Went on Atkins and in 3 days my fasting blood sugar was 98. I stayed on it from June 1 2011 until mid October lost 37 more for a total of 57 pounds lost but then ate a piece of birthday cake (though I didn't crave a thing) and fell way off the wagon.. Got off Atkins and gained 20 back. I have been rocking back and forth with those 20 or 30 pounds for years and now it has to stop! UPDATE! IT DID STOP! I lost 42 pounds from Jan 1 2017 to the end of Sept. and my A1C dropped to 5.2

    I have not been able to adapt to vinegar so prominent in glad dressing. I know it would be better for me but my taste buds just don't like it. So to combat the fatness of dressings I put it on the side and dip my fork in it then take a bit of salad. This works and i use very little salad.

    thanks for the comment on my post! Ive been using a pull up progression that has helped immensely! It starts with just holding the pull up on top for as long as you can, then middle, bottom, and a few other moves. When I started it I could only hold the top for 5-6 secs at most! If you would like, I can send it over to you =)
