Looking To Enjoy The Small Things In Life Again!

Hello there, So here is a little about me:

I am a 28 year old married woman who moved to San Jose, Ca from Canada back in 2006. I am 5'5 and 370lbs with 200lbs to lose as my goal weight. I am looking to find like minded people in the area that want to buddy up for support.

I am here looking to improve my health and start enjoying the small things in life again and maybe make a few new friends along the way that have had some of the same trails and tribulations ...

Welcome to the 300+team. 300 is such a BIG number but if we persevere, focus and motivate one another we can reach our goals!
We have so much of life ahead of us and it is so much better to work on ourselves and reach for our goals.

We can do it-- we are worth the effort!

All we can do is take it one day, one bite, one pound at a time.

I am looking forward to supporting you in your quest for better health and a happier future.
