Hi! My name is Mary and I am 47 years old. My husband and I have four children, ages 16, 14, 13, and 11.

I have been overweight for most of my life. Currently I am 213 pounds. I would like to lose 75 to 100 pounds....can't make up my mind for sure. I would like to lose 50 pounds by this June. We are going to travel home and I really want to look good. I am tired of being tired and achy all the time. I feel like I have wasted many years trapped in this big body.

I enjoy crafts, reading, and sewing. We homeschool, so I don't get a lot of time to myself. That is something I need to work on this year, too.

213 lbs at doctors office - January 1, 2012
208 lbs home - January 4, 2012
205 lbs home - January 11, 2012
203 lbs home - January 18, 2012
201 lbs home - January 25, 2012

My Goals:
My beginning goals are to drink at least 8 cups of water a day, eat more fruits and veggies, exercise four days a week at least and lose 50 lbs by June 2012. My bigger goals in addition to those are to lose 75 - 100 lbs by December 2012.

My Program:
I am walking four days a week, drinking 8+ cups of water a day and writing down everything that goes in my mouth. I am trying to keep my calories between 1200 and 1500 calories a day.

Personal Information:
I am a sinner, saved by the Grace of God. He loved me before I knew Him. I am so thankful for Jesus Christ!!.

Other Information:
My favorite movies are Napoleon Dynamite, Elf. I also love Pride and Prejudice and Anne of Green Gables. I guess I would be a kooky romantic :)

    you're most welcome anytime you need a shoulder to lean on! As for myself, I'v just completed my 6th of near perfect food tracking and working out and feels like 6 years.Seriously time seems to stop when I think of my progress youknowhwat wise, but feeling good, in control (had a piece of chocolate cake probably after posting on your blog and reading that you'd had som LOL) but just one piece and was scared outta my wits when I put it on the food tracker expecting to see 5000 cal or something, but pleasantly relieved, was only 230 PHEW!!!
