Jamie Grubb
Karma Coins: 505

I’m Jamie and I live near Albany NY (tired of the cold). I am 57 and have 8 grown children and 12 grandkids. I have been on a roller coaster since I went through menopause 4 years ago and put on 40 pounds. I was previously one of the fortunate ones who could eat pretty much anything and not gain weight. I have been through Ideal Protein, Weight Watchers (which wasn’t too bad, but the point was a pain) and each time put more back on. I know how to eat and have eaten pretty well, healthy, organic etc. most of my life, but like homebaked goodies too much.
This is the first time I feel like a diet is laid out in a way I can relate to, stick to, and eat well. I feel really hopeful I can get my hormones and metabolism in a better place again. I am surrounded by a thin family who eats whatever they want! I am a trauma chaplain and active in travel internationally at times (really hard disaster sites) and I need to be in good shape!
I am really excited about being here with a one year goal of being able to climb some of those trails in the mountains again by Summer of 17.

Thank you, thank you,
