I've been twenty-seven lbs overweight for roughly three years now. I just took my blood pressure last night and discovered that it was high which has me concerned as well as scared. In need of a friend as well as a weight loss buddy. I live in Georgia and thirty-nine years old.View Thread
I lost thirty pounds before on Nutrisystem and gradually gained'em all back over the course of three years. I'm on certain meds in which really slow my metabolism and I have to be extremely careful on what I eat. It's been a miserable struggle for the past couple of years and I'm tired of it! My knees haven't been the same since I topped out at two hundred pounds after going through two pregnancies and they give out when I crouch down even for a minute! I'm 5'3" and 164 lbs. I'm supposed to be 135-140 lbs. I live in Georgia and in need of a weight loss buddy!View Thread
Yeah...I'll be starting on going to the gym fairly soon and I agree that it can be embarassing. Watching what I eat now. I've had egg beaters for breakfast and tuna salad with an apple for lunch so far. I plan on having baked chicken & veggies for dinner. So far I'm at 160 lbs.View Thread
