Hi I'm Reddy, I live in Texas & have two boys with autism. I work part time during the school year. I get very little support for losing weight from people around me since they need to lose more than I do & comment on that fact everytime.Hubby is doing great on encouraging me now, he is working too which is great

If you care to get ahold of me ReddyRd5 at Gmail dot com will get me.

Goals and motivation

I want to get down to 120 lbs which is about 15lbs for me to lose. I would like to tone up my arms & lose my tummy.

I have started over on the program - my newest goal is to complete the program & get stronger.

Next goal is to do 2 pull ups without help. I lost 10 lbs but gained it back - starting "diet" again - I need to stick too it & relax more.

    Reddy. Thank you for the kind words. Turning 50 this year was a milestone for me. You look great too. When I was your age, I was out of shape and not living well from health problems, poverty etc. I am originally from Atlanta, live now in Montreal. Nice to meet another Southerner. Two children with autism. My God you are incredible.
