It's time to get down to business! I can't wait to join in on life instead of watching it!

And guess what I finally am! I have a new bike that I love riding and I enjoy walking, I love sitting at my computer because I can fit in the chair, I don't need an extender on my car seat belt, I love shopping at the salvation army for new clothes and saving money to do all the fun things I want. I am looking forward to gatherings and meeting people... I always shyed away because of my size. I am really feeling comfortable in my own skin, and best of all I am HAPPY!

i look at old pictures and I can't believe its really me... the way I look now and that it was really me then. All I can say is WOW! My life is so different and has so much meaning. I'm not sitting on the side line. I am making my life the way I want it

Personal Information:
My name is Ellaree, I have been over weight for over 20 years. I had the RNY surgery to help me as a tool in my weight loss journey. I still struggle with making the right choices. I did very well but it's hard. I can slowly see the weight going up and I want to stop it in its place now!

Other Information:
I love playing games, I love the wii, I like to paint,crotchet, some sewing, making stuff from junk and giving it a new life, resale shops, but most of all I love being with my family. Now I love dancing type exercises! I joined a gym recently so I have no excuses about the weather or the time it open 24/7

    Your page is absolutely amazing and I know that you have worked hard to get down to be as small as you are. You also have a beautiful daughter! I bet it will feel great in Jamaica when you give her away and have the strength and energy to enjoy it all. Your page also shows me that I can set any goal weight that I want and I can attain to it.

    Thanks for the welcome. I think I gravitated to your page for 2 reasons.......

    1) You have done AMAZING!!!!! I know I can do it too and just gotta stop being lazy! LOL!

    2) You remind me of a friend(she also was a tiny spitfire! LOL!) who I lost to cancer after a very long battle,and when I see your smiling face I feel like she is still here telling me to DO IT!
