Updated 1/2017 So, my previous attempt worked for a bit, (see below), but got sidelined by injury and illness and lack of funds for a Y membership. I was, at one point, at my highest weight 302 lbs. I made a goal to lose 40 lbs. by my 40th birthday and managed 30 and plateaued and let my eating go unchecked. I've been hovering at the same weight of 276 and now find it medically necessary to lose weight. This summer I will be 43 and I'd like to live at least another 43 years. This time around it is a matter of life or death.

hi. i'm amy from indiana. i'll be 35 this, how did i get here??? i was little in high school, but thought i was huge. i didn't eat much. i went to college and gained the typical freshman 15...and then some. guess that's what happens when you start eating. toward the end of my college years...i would consider myself overweight, but in good shape. in 2002 i had a major back injury and BOOM! gained 40 lbs. in 3 months. with back trouble i've found it harder to be as active as i would like to be. i got a job in 2007 and gained another 40 lbs... too many "pitch-ins". i'm going on 35 and haven't even been able to consider having kids. i have enough trouble carrying my own weight around. i don't want my nephews and niece to be embarrassed by their fat aunt. i want to be able to keep up with my energetic husband. i know if i lose weight, it will help my back troubles.

I AM READY. my brother-in-law's wife and i are going to be a team in our local YMCA's "Better Weigh" program starting this monday (may 4,2009). i will learn how to exercise for my body, how to eat better and regain the self-confidence that i once had. the lady that showed me around the Y before i joined lead me to this website. i'm excited to become part of a community facing the same issues and reaching for the same goals as me. Here I Go!!!

    We the members of Calling Christian Women are wondering how you are doing as we haven't heard from you in some time.

    We would like to encourage you to come to the group and participate rather than letting your membership go to the inactive status for the group.

    Looking forward to hearing from you

    Hi just stopping by to see how you are doing

    You have joined the new Calling Christian Women - THe Official Team = hopefully you find the group helpful

    I look forward to you posting in one of the chat rooms - I am encouraging all members to participate as often as possible in order to get full benefit of the group - but if all you can do it to post once a week that would be good.

    Just don't want any of our members to go into the inactive status for the group = we would like to keep the group having all members participating regularly - we all benefit from that.

    Looking forward to hearing form you

    Be blessed
