I'm Wendi. 37 years old, married, 5'6, born & raised in Connecticut. I've battled my weight since I was a child and when I hit 200 pounds/size 16 in 2006, I finally realized I needed to change. It took me 2 years to lose 60 lbs, but I did it and I felt amazing. Fast forward to Spring 2013 - I'm misdiagnosed with a facial pain disorder and put on a combo of 9.5 pills a day to manage the pain. I put on 45 pounds in the year leading up to my wedding day (09/20/14) - super frustrating and depressing. In January 2015, I go to the dentist and they figure out that it was an abscessed tooth for 2 years! Ridiculous. So now I'm meds-free and pain-free and working on getting my body back. Never thought I'd have to fight this battle again but I'm thankful to be off the meds and "cured" ... so that's what I'm focusing on. Only positive vibes!! I did it before, I will do it again! Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes run in my family and I just want to be as strong and healthy as I can be, for the REST OF MY LIFE. I love surrounding myself with healthy, positive, ambitious people and making new friends... so on that note, thanks for visiting my page! ***** it's all attitude and hard work!!! ***** put in to it, what you want to get from it!!! ***** self-love: BE ABOUT IT!!!

    Welcome to SP! I am also a recent member (from Jan 12th) and have really enjoyed the support and encouragement very much. As I skimmed your page and your teams, I noticed we have a few things in common and I just wanted to stop by and offer you a buddy or just someone to vent to about anything. Stop by my page and let me know how you are doing. I know we can do this. Good Luck to us!!

    You look great! A very inspiring story! I was right where you started a year & a half ago. I was the biggest of my life and it just hit me one day that I had to lose this weight or it would end up killing me. My fam also has a history of heart disease and diabetes. I have lost almost 50lbs so far myself! I have about another 20lbs to go until my goal. Once I get down there I will decide if I want to keep going or stop there. I've never been 'skinny' my entire life so I have no idea what 150 will even feel like, but I can't wait to get there! :)
