Good Afternoon,


Its been a few years since I have been to this site. My name is Carolyn and I am so glad to have found this site again. I just joined WW 3 weeks ago and am on Core. I can use all the support I can get and hope to be able to give some also. I am married for 25 years and live in Amarillo Tx. I am 52 years old with 2 great young adults and a wonderful husband. Thanks for keeping this site alive. It was of great support to me in past years.. I know it will be again. I am down almost 7 lbs in the past 3 weeks and after gaining the first week I am very encouraged.. My son is getting married in March and I want to be gorgeous for his wedding. Hope everyone had a great day.

Thanks again

I've just turned 60, married with three grown children and three grandchildren. Done WW off and on, but lately it's harder to lose. Doing Core now and loving it, not so much for the dramatic weight loss, but for the newfound way I feel. I do believe I will succeed, but it will be quite a while before I get there.
