What are some of your favorite movies ~ Any romantic comedy. Suspense thrillers. All the "Tug-at-your-heart-real-life-tearjerker" movies. Although I can really act like I enjoy an occasional violent guy flick to support my dh. Then again I love TV's 24 so I guess a little violence is not so bad after all!!

Favorite music ~ Country

What made you decide to join the Jaded Ladies ~ After reading your post, I really loved the encouragment and support your gave each other. You all genuinely care about each other's interest in every day events including their personal weightloss journey.

Other comments ~ I lost 30 lbs the summer of 2005 and treated myself to a Tummy Tuck. I believe that I got a little too confident (and lazy) and quickly packed on 15 lbs this past summer/fall. The weight was not going to my tummy but porked up my arms, face, neck, upper abs etc. My pants were still fitting!!! I had wonderful support on a tummy tuck forum while I was fresh from sugery and miss those late nights on the message boards. I am so looking forward to meeting you all!!

Talking Newbie Introduction

Name ~ Trish

Age ~ 64

Birthday ~ 8-22-43

Occupation ~ Housewife/Retired?

General location ~ SC

Height ~ 5'2"

How much weight are you trying to lose ~ about 80 - 85 lbs

What type program are you following ~ WW Flex Plan

What's your marital status ~ Married to Tony

Any children and grandchildren ~ 5 children/6 grandchildren/2 great-grandaughters

Tell us about your pets ~ None at this time

What are your hobbies and interests ~
Reading/PC games/Spending time with Tony

What are some of your favorite movies ~
DH is movie buff and we watch ay least one ever night, but It's A Wonderful Life, Sound of Music... love Romance and some Sci-Fi like Star Wars types not scary ones.

Favorite music ~ I love all kinds of music such as Classical, Gospel. Oldies from 50s & 60s, but not heavy medal or rap,

What made you decide to join the Jaded Ladies ~
I have struggled with weight since my 20's. I get weary with it and tired of trying some times. I've come close to goal weight many times the last time I lost down to 175 and then gained to within about 40 lbs of my all time high. I've always been basically healthy regardless, but now have some health issues that losing weight would help and/or correct. Nothing serious, but could be and and I don't want it to be. Therefore I think I would fit in here.

Other comments ~
I have known for a long time that I need to lose the weight, however recently I can feel some changes in my body that says it is time to get serious about doing it. I have just started back on WW at Home program and keeping it simple. I don't like going to meetings and they are so expensive. I am committed to making it to goal no matter how long it takes me (always been a "do it fast" kind of person). I realize that is unrealistic. I hope to be able to give and receive support here. Thanks, Trish
