Jessica, Welcome to the team and congrats on your accomplishments so far!!

Your story is so like mine: I started being very conscious of my weight during high school more than before. When I graduated in 1982 I was at 160. By the time I was married and got pregnant at 20 I was at 165 lbs. The day I had my son I was weighing in at 205 and then divorced later that year. When I remarried 3 years later, I was holding at 200-205 and then got pregnant again.
Delivery date of 2nd son I was only at 216 lbs but then the problems started and I gained up to 288 lbs by the time I got divorced a second time. That was in 1997.

I've been battling that weight and have finally gotten to where I am now and thanks to the support and encouragement of this and my other teams I am FINALLY at a point that my mindset is in the right place to continue and win this life long battle.

So again... WELCOME and best of luck on your journey!!

My name is Jessica, Im currently 27 years old and have been working on changing habits and creating a healthy lifestyle for myself and my family this year.

In high school I started out around 150 pound as a freshman, 180 pounds by the beginning of senior year and by the time I graduated I was around 310 pounds. I was overweight to begin with and then got in a very bad relationship my senior year and pow... what happened?

I dieted off and on from 2000 - 2005, going down then up then down then up. I would lose that first 10 pounds that comes off really fast and then gain 5 back. It took me 5 years to get down to 220 pounds and then I got pregnant with my first child.

By this past newyears I was just done with being pregnant with my second child and weighed 273 pounds. I just desided enough was enough and started living better. I told myself I dont care how long it takes I wont quit this time.

and I havent. I now weigh 230 pound and have lost 43 pounds since the first of the year and 80 pounds all together. I exercise 5-6 days a week and live healthy ... no fad diets anymore.

sorry so long lol... :-)
