Hi! Another new 40-something!
Hi everyone! I`ve been reading your posts for awhile now, and finally got around to registering myself. So-here I am.
I`m Terry. I am 43, been married forever, mom of 3, (2 in college), professional day trader, part time bookeeper, happy, and in the process of losing a big part of me.
I was a stay at home mom for over 20 yrs when hubby`s partner offered me a job in his office. Took it, love it, but man did sitting all day pack on the lbs! I was already overweight, but this went to extreme.
So- after whining and avoiding mirrors, I noticed one day that a gym opened across the street. Hard to come up with excuses when it`s that close.
So I joined the gym in the end of July.
4 months later I am down 41 lbs and counting. I joined a biggest loser contest 2 months ago, and hubby joined me then. (He`s down 24 lbs in 2 months- yay!) We have 2 months to go in the contest- and we are rocking!
I am exercising daily, watching what I eat, and staying as active as I can. I am so happy with my new attitude, and I havent felt so good in years!
I joined 3fc because, other than hubby, I really don`t have anyone to talk to about losing. I NEED pals! I need ppl to laugh with and share with.
So- here I am!
