Smile Introducing Myself

Hi All,

I've been lurking for a few weeks, ever since I found this terrific site! I figured it's about time I introduce myself.

I'm almost 52 years old and 63 inches tall. I've struggled with being overweight ever since I hit puberty. On April 1, 2005, I decided to make some lifestyle changes in order to feel better and be healthier. I weighed 200 pounds that day and so far I lost 6 pounds in April and 6 pounds in May. I'm hoping to lose 6 pounds a month until I'm out of the BMI category of obese (170 and lower). After that, I hope to lose 4 to 5 pounds a month.

I have no idea what my ultimate "goal" is. I know that the BMI category of "average" for my height ranges from 141 down to 105. The lowest I remember weighing is around 130, so after I get there, I'll see what happens.

I never thought of this as being "on a diet" since that implies a temporary situation that ends at some point (getting into a dress for a wedding, going to a reunion, etc.) whereas I feel I've made what I hope are permanent lifestyle changes in eating and keeping active.

I look forward to participating in various topics and weighing in with you on a weekly basis.

Oh yes, I'm originally from Maine (born there, lived there until last year). Living in central Massachusetts now. Hence my user name.

Mary

Hi Susanna,

Thank you for your warm welcome. I hope we both will be big "losers"!
