Hello my name is Carmen. I am a mother of 2, full time mom & ful time wife. I ignored my weight because it doesn't bother my husband but it bothers me. I was never this heavy since my first child I have gained almost 200 lbs. If that is not extreme I have no idea what it could be called. I just want to retrain myself to eat healthy, get in some exercise at least at home since it is almost impossible to get to the gym and lose enough weight to be able to live a healthy normal life. We also want to have another child but my doctor wants me to lose 200 lbs , at least 100 lbs before attempting to get pregnant again. My problem is I LOVE FOOD. I LOVE TO COOK. I LOVE TO BAKE. I am an emotional /bored eater. When I have nothing to do I eat. When I have a problem or am stresed I tend to eat, eat , eat, till I am sick of eating!! So I have a little pressure, I am not doing this for my husband, I am doing this for my kids for our future. I have held off our religious church wedding because I was so ashamed of what I looked like in my dress and my family was disappointed because they have never known me to be that shallow. I always walk around with a smile on my face and people always tell me how they envy me because I am so happy. I am happy. I love my life, my husband and my kids. I just HATE my FAT. Now my wedding is set for September 6th and am not going to worry about my weight, I am just going to be happy enough I get to marry my best friend and confidant in the religious ceremony I always dreamed of. I am still working on my weight though.

Fitness Minutes: 145

My Goals:
I am a soda junkie. I have been chubby for as long as I remember but while I was pregnant with my son (My 1st) And I am now what I and my doctors refer to as morbidly OBESE, I hate that obese I can take but MORBIDLY!! What the heck!!! I was what I call OD'' ing on soda and junk food. Co-workers from my firm were constantly bringing me food. the women from the cafeteria would drop by my office and bring me food. My husband never wanted to bother me so he always bought take out. I was addcited to McD''s and chinese food, he is still trying to get even this very minute while i am typing he is trying to convince me to have some Dominican birthday cake, that is the most sugar loaded cake on earth..Look I pretty much want to become what I have never had the chance to be, a healthy medium sized woman. I don''t wanna be super model skinny I just want to feel good and be healthy.


My Program:
I am giving up the soda entirely, I am also trying to give up the white rice and wonder bread. I LOVE WONDER BREAD. I will be exercising 4 times a week (cardio and the other 3 days will be strength training. i am virtually new to exercising. I used to go to the gym But that was pre marriage be fore the kids, I used to love going to the gym. Now I am embarrassed to walk into the gym and have all those skinny people stare at me.



Personal Information:
I was born and raised in the Bronx, and because of my alleriges my doctor doesn''t permit me to take diet pills so that is why I think it is hard for me. I got sick taking supplements can u believe that? I just need support because my husband tries to knock me off the horse by constantly offering me and bringing me all those junk foods we all love. I am not only looking for a diet buddy but also people I have things in common with and could carry long term hopefully life long friendships with.


Other Information:
I love to knit and crochet. I love James Patterson books. I am an avid reader of mostly crime novels but I also love romance novels. I love music and I do like to dance. I am trying to incorporate this into my exercise routine.

    Saw your "huddle" for needing support so I'm dropping by to tell you that we are here for you! I really believe that YOU CAN DO THIS, Carmen! You just have to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF . You're like a emoticon who needs to come out of it's cacoon to spread its wings and fly. Hold onto the hand of Jesus and He WILL bring you through to the other side.

    God Bless,

    Hi
    We have somethings in common. I am trying to lose a total of 109 pds. I am also from the bronx but i now live on long island. Dieting and exercise is soooooooooo hard!! Especially when you love to cook and bake like we both do!! One of my best skills is cooking! My boyfriend loves to eat it as well so that makes it even harder.
    Anyway i am here for you if you need support. We can do this together :)
    check out my page for more info :) Hope to talk soon
