Hi! My name is Desi! I am wife to one man and mother is six monkeys (ok, they are really children but you can't tell most days!) I am almost 25 years old.!

When I was a teenager, I gained a lot of weight (Up to 180, and I am 4'11" tall!)during high school, then lost over 50 pounds (Down to 125!) and became really active and involved with EVERYTHING I could squeeze into my schedule.

Then I got married and got pregnant, and life slowed down, and my weight went back up. Four pregnancies (two of them twin pregnancies) and six children later, I've gained back up to almost my heaviest ever weight...

I joined Spark People last year but got really discouraged when my husband scoffed at yet another weight lose program I wanted to try and didn't make it past day 2 back in October. But having just taken a million pictures that will be forever frozen in time at my SIL's wedding, I think I've finally given up caring about whether anyone thinks I can make it or not- this is about me, my self-image, the example I am setting for my children, and what I want, for once.
