i started my weight loss journey in november 2006. i'm 5'4"ish and weighed 270 pounds. i hated my wedding pictures. i hated walking down the street. i was embarrassed for my new husband. i'd always been the fat friend with " a great personality!" *eye roll*

i got tired of hating myself and feeling disgusting and started losing weight. i lost 87 lbs before i finally quit smoking in september 2007. then, i gained back some weight. i was having trouble finding the way to make my new healthier non-carcinogen infested body to lose weight and gave up for a while. recently i was diagnosed as pre-diabetic which has turned my world upside down!!

BUT I'M BACK. i'm faster, better, stronger, sexier, smarter, and more awesome than ever. i think this last weight is about the mind more than the body. i have some lessons i need to learn in order to lose this weight.

1) i'm worth it.
2) i don't care if you think i'm fat. i'm less-fat, thank you .
3) they are no bad days.
4) i can.

and, as a wise woman once said, i can totally lose 5lbs 11 more times! :D

    emoticon I could stop by here and say a lot of silly things, but I read your statement that you have pre-diabetes and that is more than a emoticon Go Girl, issue. Please read Arthur Agatston, M.D.'s book "The South Beach Diet" in which he talks about Insulin Resistance/Pre-diabetes and what needs to be done to lose the belly fat when we have such a difficult time getting weight off. He is not a "fad" doctor, but developed the diet to help his heart patients who were having heart attacks at 45. He didn't start out to write a "diet" book.
