My name is CJ and I'm a 57-year-old woman (wow, it's hard for me to write that -- the 57 part, not the woman part). I am tons overweight, but I lead a pretty much normal life and try not to be defined by the fact that I'm fat.
But, of course, I am fat, lol. I tried Atkins about 10 years ago and lost 35 pounds and kept it off until last year when I had a stressful period. Now, I would really ultimately like to lose probably 90 pounds altogether, but I decided to go in mini-goals.
I live in Key West, FL but am spending a lot of time up in New England right now for a project I'm working on. (I actually returned to Key West, where I am right now, just in time to encounter Tropical Storm Fay which -- btw -- was nothing but a nice rainstorm for us.)
Anyway, that's a little bit about me. I've got to get a scale, but I'm flying out Thursday back up north and think I will purchase one while I'm up there.
All the best,
