My name is April. I've always had a bit of a weight problem but in my 20's it spiraled out of control. I'm now 33 and can no longer delude myself into thinking that 'eventually' I will lose the weight. Eventually starts right now. I've been married to a wonderful man for eleven years. We want to start a family and soon! I don't want an unhealthy pregnancy and so there's a little more motivation for me to get this weight under control.
As far as weight loss struggles, mine is the food. I can get myself to get out and exercise. But man oh man, I have a hard time with limiting my caloric intake. I love food. I'm obsessed with it. I wake up and wonder what I'll get to eat that day. It's a sickness and I am trying so hard to overcome it. I know this won't be east. I know from experience that I'll have many ups and downs. But this time the downs won't keep me down. They can't. I have no choice but to work hard. Because after all, no one can lose this weight for me. This is all on me. It's something that in the end I can take pride in. I will do this thing. Once and for all.

My Goals:
My goals are to feel good. To look good. To get off all medications. I want to never have to worry about fitting in a booth or an airplane seat. I want to be able to tie my shoes with ease and wrap a regular sized towel around my entire body. My goal is to never have a heart attack or a stroke due to my obesity. I want to live the life I've always wanted to live.

My Program:
I try to keep my calories in the projected range. I work out five days a week. After my weigh in on Thursdays, my husband and I go out to eat. I allow myself to eat that thing I'd been craving all week. So far it hasn't caused a set back so hopefully I can continue. It keeps me sane and helps me from feeling deprived.
