I was never an overweight person growing up. When I got married in June 1999 I was a size 10-12. My husband and I worked in a factory in Mississippi where our lunch break was only 20 minutes. I learned to eat fast. Then you only got 2 ten min breaks so you had snacks by you at all times.

I never noticed the weight gain but my mother came to visit and was shocked at the weight gain. My husband and I lost our jobs and moved back to KY. Started working and exercising less. Gained more and more. Then my husband got a job and that required me to move to IN. There I found myself big. So my mother and I joined Weight Watchers and the scales showed me 205. I was shocked! Worked on counting points and sneaking in exersise. Then in 2006, I found out I was pregnant. I wanted to stay with Weight Watchers but they would not let a pregnant woman be there. So I dropped and tried watching what I ate. In June 2006 I lost twin boys at 21 weeks pregnant due to complications beyond my control. So I was in a depression state for months. Gained more weight. Then my mother said why don't we join TOPS. I was like yeah it will be like Weight motivation and no one friendly. I was wrong. The leader welcomed with a warm hug and everyone made me feel warm and that I could do this. I have been up and down on the scales but I have lost 22 pounds with there help. I was so motivated last year that I was gonna graduate this year and I got pregnant and had a miscarriage at 5 weeks. So here I am AGAIN. I want to graduate and be a part of the circle of light in 2012 SRD!

Hope my story did not bore everyone. I am a Colts fan and I am owned by 2 Bostons, Sadie and Abby.

    Well..... I think that many people thing I have this magic weight loss secret, but I don't, the fact is I messed up many times, It took a long time to lose this weight....

    I did try eating salad plate portions, lots more water, and tried to move more, I did eat what I want but gave up lots of junk food, I used to eat a bag of chips a night... bad me huh!

    Graduating is one of the most beautiful moments, You can do this..... Please keep in touch with me so I know how you are doing on your journey to KOPS land and goal weight

    I am heading to IRD in July and will be very busy it seems.

    And Debbie/ HICALGAL if you read this , Love ya gorgeous!
