Well, thought it was time to "really" tell you a little about me.

I am a 52 year old female. I have struggled with weight issues since my son was born, well actually probably way before that I have been on a 'diet" of one kind or another all my life, but, not until my son was born did all "h*ll" break lose. I had toximia and I balloned out to well over 200 pounds from 139. After he was aproximately 3 or so, I went on Nutrisystem dropped 60 plus pounds...was I satisfied of course not. I was on a mission, I dieted till I was below 115 I was looking like a scarecrow, but I thought I looked great my husband (now deceased) was paniced and told me to start eating, well I leveled out, after a time, to about 139. This weight I maintained for aprox. 7 years, then my husband died...yup u got it, I remarried quickly after, was a bad marriage, and I balloned out to 300 pounds plus...5'3 I couldn't walk across a room. I was killing myself with food to escape my abusive marriage. One day, I woke up and said enough threw him out, lost about 100 pounds on Nutrisystem....

Then I remarried to my wonderful Yankee. My weight still well over my ideal body weight but I felt so much better losing the 100 so what did I do? Start eating again, junk food anything that was destructive, WHY???? My low sense of self, my own sense of unworthiness. WEll, on July 14, 2008 I looked at myself and I could see I was gaining weight again, and I said enough, enough is enough. I have everything I want, my life is wonderful no more of me destroying me, I am worth it.

Funny, this is probably the first time in my life I am doing this for me and not for approval or a man, or some other outside affirmation.

Thanks for coming to my page hope to meet you soon...with support and friends we will all make our goals no matter how big or how small


God Bless
