I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. I was the kid that got picked on in elementary school for being overweight. I am a professional dieter. Name it I've tried it. And sometimes even successful, although it was short-lived. As the years seem to go by the pounds keep coming with it. Losing weight seems to be getting increasingly more difficult. But I never do give up.
I'm a 34 year old busy mom of 2 little girls. I have a very hard time putting myself before them. My husband is my best friend and the best support a person could ask for.
I'm starting this journey at 318lbs. Ouch! I never want to see that number again. I'm determined to beat obesity this time. My weight is not what defines me anymore.

I have a lot of fight in me.....watch out! =)
