Hi, my name is Michelle and I would like to lose almost 100 lbs. I actually just found some old pictures of myself from about 7-11 years ago. I was SOOO thin! But the sad thing is, I always thought I looked big. Now, at 32, 229 lbs and a size 20, I really AM big. And it's that much harder to lose weight. I want to look good for ME!! I want to learn how to be happy with my size (once it's a healthy size) and learn to appreciate any progress I make. I am definitely too hard on myself. My schedule really makes it difficult to work out regularly. I try to walk at work and not give into boredom eating. I work 12 hour shifts, most of which I spend on my butt. Since starting here 5 years ago, I've gained about 50 pounds. This has to stop! I just don't know how! I've been on this site for a few years now and am still gaining.

Trying to eat better and exercise more. Not as easy as it sounds...lol. This site is definitely helping to keep me on track. I am not as disciplined as I would like to be, but I think I have a food addiction so I'm trying to work through that.

Personal Information:
I currently reside in Levittown, PA. I'm a 911 dispatcher. It's not as glamorous as it sounds. I have a Boxer baby named Peanut, she will be a year old Nov. 16. She is the world to me! I just adore her. I like to do crafts, especially crochet and making baby baskets for showers. I'd like to start a business selling my handmade items. I'm looking for friends with similar interests!

    Cool, I just started crocheting this year. Never tried knitting, sounds very interesting though. Have you read Debbie Macomber's Blossom Street books? It is about this lady who has a yarn store. She knits and her sister (who come in later in the book crochets). I loved it. Hope you are well. Have a good and healthy focused day. Holly

The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! emoticon emoticon ¸.•´ (¸.•´ ♥¸.•´¸¸.• (¸.•´ (¸.•*¨ (¸.¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.
