Hi my name is Doreen and I joined SP on October 19th 2008. I am from Maine and I have 4 great children...Dustan 18, Shawna 16, Cameron 10, and Emma 13 months. I started this journey weighing 174, the highest I have ever weighed with the exception of when I was full term with Emma at that point I was 205!

I have been struggling since I joined, I have hit a few roadblocks along the way that have sidelined me and discouraged me. Weight loss is the hardest thing I have ever tried to do and ever will do!

I am setting no certain date to lose this weight by, I am just trying to get through one day at a time, and when I can successfully get through one day then that to me is a good day.

Yes my goal is to get down to 140 and like what I see in the mirror and not dread clothes shopping and getting dressed in the morning, but also I so desperately want to get healthy. I have young children who depend on me being here for them and that's just what I want to do, I want to be here for them.

S0 here goes
