Hi there! My name is Lisa. I re-read my old introduction and it sounded fake. I was trying very hard to prove to myself that I was happy and I honestly was not. It has taken me the 1 1/2 years (with the help of the YMCA & my therapist) to really be happy and get happier with myself . My new motto is "Be the change", it is a shortened Ghandi quote. If I am bored, unhappy, sad, etc......I am the only person that can change it. One morning in Sept 2011, I WOKE UP.....I was just tired of complaining about being sad, depressed, angry, heavy, insert next complaint here and so on. I was literally sick of hearing myself. I signed up for the YMCA weight loss program. I am more active than ever, my self esteem and self confidence have increased 100%, and I actually can stand to look at myself in the mirror. I am down about 50 lbs, I am at 216.5. I have donated all my size 18, 20 and 2X clothes. I am proud of myself, that is the first time in my life that I have said that and could honestly mean it.
