I am a 35 year old mother of 2. I have a non-verbal autistic son. I want to lose weight and feel healthy. I am very motivated and feel like it is possible to accomplish anything if you are dedicated and put your mind to it. I want this to be a lifestyle change not a diet. I was told that my autistic son was severaly mentally retarded and wouldn't be able to do a lot.. He is now 11 and potty trained. He may not have any verbal words but he uses a picture exchange communication system in which he request what he wants with a stip and now uses attributes. I refuse to give up and there is always hope.
Sometimes it is hard trying to fit everything in but I believe all things are possible. My goal is to get down to the weight I was in middle school. It make take a while but I will not give up.

    Hope you're doing better than me... 0/2 on tracking for 3 days. Wondering if I might go about it differently... will give it some thought today. Part of my trouble is I'm trying to spend less time on the web/computer. In order to make myself do that I have to turn the computer off and then it's a PITB to track on SP.

    I'm having a hard time getting back into tracking... my self-challenge is to track the next 3 days (mon-wed) and make that my short term goal/focus. Want to join me?

    How has it been since you got back home? Are you back on track? I hope so... it's hard to lose motivation but you'll feel so great when you're back in the groove! :)
