Basically I have been overweight since I hit puberty! Had my first daughter when I was 14 and gained about 80 pounds with her due to preeclampsia. That put me at 200 pounds even for my Freshman year. After meeting my husband in 2005, I weighed about 230 pounds and after giving birth to my second daughter in 2006, I reached 300 pounds in 2008. Then in March 2010, THIS YEAR, I decided to face the truth and go to a diet doctor. I was crushed to find out I weighed 320 pounds...the most I have EVER weighed!! I got serious with cardio and food intake, and have currently lost about 60 pounds from March to July! I've been taking it reaaal easy for the past few weeks and I need to bump it up hardcore again so I can fit into my bridesmaids dress for my sister in law's wedding in October!! I can get it on but it is very snug and only zips about halfway!! lol...hopefully 15-20 pounds will make it JUST RIGHT!! Anyways I am getting into sparkpeople for some extra encouragement and tips!!! My goal weight is 160 pounds by July 2011, my 5th anniversary is on the 3rd and I want my hubby to see me like he's NEVER seen me before! And he's never seen me any less than 230 pounds!! Feel free to add/message me!

My Goals:
To get under 250 FIRST! Then to get under 230...then to be under 200, which I haven't been in almost 10 years! I have NEVER worn shorts in public even when I was in middle and high school because I hate my legs. I have spent too many summers in blue jeans and NEXT summer I wanna be in SHORTS!

My Program:
Doing cardio on the elliptical, bike, and treadmill, richard simmons dvd, some basic weight training, swimming, diet control, and LOTS of water!!
