My whole life I have battled and obsessed over my weight, to the point of letting is consume me. I'm trying to learn to live a lifestyle that will stop the emotional eating and the yo-yo dieting. I've had success but also failure and need to find a balance. At this point in my life I wish I didn't have to constantly focus on every calorie I consume but it's obvious that I don't have a choice if I'm going to try to keep the weight off. At least I find that I now take control of the situation if the weight starts to creep back on but I wish I didn't have to fight so hard.

I battle severe depression and that certainly doesn't help when I'm an emotional eater! I've lost most of my family to cancer, went through a divorce, and am very lonely and unsettled in my life.

I'm trying to find the courage and strength to get through one day at a time, find happiness, and take control of my health.

We'll see how it goes....

To get into the jeans I wore about five years ago.

Try to ride my recumbent bike at least three times a week and try floor work at least two. When the weather gets nice I want to walk as well.

Personal Information:
My name is Laurie and about eleven years ago I lost 80 pounds. I kept it off for a good five or six years until my mom was diagnosed with cancer and I got divorced. The weight slowly started to creep back on. I've since lost my mom, gram & gramp to their battles with cancer and was starting to put on more. Now that they're gone I decided it was time to focus on me again and get the extra weight back off. I only had about 30 to lose this time, not 80, but it's still been a struggle. I'm going to get it off once and for all!!!

Other Information:
"I'm not going to dwell on the past of what would've, could've, or should've been, I am now going to look forward to the future, new obstacles, and new beginnings!"
