Hello all!
I'm a 32 yr old wife who has been heavy my whole life. I've had some injuries in the past that probably steam from my weight....bad knees, bad back. Last night I was going through some old photos from HS and college and thought, "DANG! I looked really good back then!" (14 yrs ago) Now, I've never been one to really exercise, but I'm pretty interested in yoga so I'm going to give that a shot. I need to lose weight as 208 lbs on a little 5'2" frame body is just not cutting it and I need to get healthy! Let's DO this!

Weigh Ins:
08/14/11 208 lbs
08/21/11 208 lbs (-0)
08/28/11 208 lbs (-0)
09/06/11 208.2 lbs (+.2)
09/12/11 205.6 lbs (-2.6) (I think the tea is starting to pay off!!!!)

    My boss went through some terrible pain this summer from a pinched nerve due to disc issues, and ended up needing surgery, which helped IMMENSELY. I can imagine how bad it must be if you have two messed up discs! Hang in there and don't be so hard on yourself.

    Hey how's the program going? I'm struggling so much to just stay on the straight and narrow and will not be meeting my goals for the end of the month but I've not given up so am still telling myself I'm not failing at this I'm just floundering a little lol. Hope you're having more success than me right now! emoticon
