Hi Everyone. I am a 35 year old female from Piedmont, Alabama! I started this journey at 366 pounds with a goal to be at 150 at some point in my life. It's been a very long and hard journey! I was able to get down to 160 pounds, but with life happening have managed to get back up to 300+.

As far back as I can remember, I have always been overweight. I have always been the big girl. It took a picture that my mom took of me in 2005 to show me just how BIG I really was. I sat down with that picture when it came back and cried and cried and cried. It is one thing to realize that you are overweight; however, it takes another part of your soul to do something about it. At that point, I knew that I had to do something, but I didn't know what to do. I begin dieting...yo you that is! So, I lost a bunch of weight!

However, in January 2007, I met a guy. A guy so special in fact that I stopped trying to lose weight and focused on him. I gained back all that I had lost plus more! We married and divorced by 2009.

On my wedding day, I weighed well over 360 pounds. How did I let myself get so big? Why didn't anybody ever tell me that I was getting too ridiculous w/ my eating habits?

On January 1, 2010, I decided that enough was enough! I was going to go through a LIFESTYLE change! No, I am not dieting...I am changing my lifestyle. This journey would not be complete w/o the help of my friends and my family!

This is just the beginning....of a life that God has ordained from the beginning!
