The Start of the journey

In this first post I will tell you a little about myself. I am a soon 60 year old. The funniest thing just happened. Auto correct made me 50.LOL . Anways I am divorced mom of a 34 year old son (Ryan), a 27 year old daughter (Rachel) and a new grandson 2 month old Cameron. I have also been blessed with a Son in law (Joe). I work full time as a social worker. My weight struggle has been life long. Currently I weigh 268 (5'3"). At my top weight I was 384. My lowest weight has been 248. My weight loss was a result of lifestyle changes and has taken place over the last 12 years. I have health struggles. I am a 14 year survivor of ovarian cancer. I have high BP and diabetes, both in control with meds. I would say I am an emotional eater. I currently go to weight watchers and I can tell you from the age of 10 to 18 my parents had me on many diets, pills, shots ect. But from the age of 18 to 58 I did not "diet". I joined WW because my daughter had experienced a life tragedy and wanted to go. So I came along for the ride. GOOD DECISION. I've had my UPS and downs but I do weigh less then when I started (288). I want to use this blog to record my food as I eat it and as a way to explore my feelings. Your comments and struggles are so welcomed. So to start I had a thin bagel 3 pts.2 Tbs. PB2 2 pts. Bananna 0 pts, mixed fresh berries 0 pts.1/2 cup Greek yougart 2 pts. Total 7 pts. My daily budget is 35. For those of you who don't know what PB2 is let me tell you its the greatest invention since the wheel. It's a powder, you mix 2 Tbs with 1 Tbs water-45 cals! I dare you not to love it. It's hard to find. In my area it is only available at the commisary and through mail order. I'll post the address next post.
