My Goals:
I just had a baby on 12/23/09. My goal is to lose around eighty pounds AND to keep it off by adopting healthy lifestyle changes.

I want to look beautiful in a wedding dress and find a fabulous dress that isn't in the plus sizes!

My Program:
I am spending more time in the grocery store making better choices. Although I am making better choices, I tend to fall off the wagon easily and my portion sizes are not in check. I am easily tempted and need to increase my willlpower!

I walk and hit the gym at least three times a week.

I need as much support as I can get, and since I am on the computer a lot, I thought that this would be a good place to begin.

Personal Information:
My name is Melanie and I have three beautiful biracial children, ages ten, six, and nearly eight months. I am divorced, and happy to say that I have found a great guy and am in a solid relationship. We are getting married 6/25/11 and I will look fabulous!!

I am 36, and I am looking for buddies to help keep me on track, and I like the idea of people peeking over my shoulder, watching my progress.... I want a sense of accountability, and I am hoping this might help.

Other Information:
I am an 8th grade language arts teacher and a big Harry Potter fan and Twilight series fan.

Start weight for 2010 was
214 pounds after baby....

*** 15 pounds lost on 4/28/10 -- 198.4

*** 20 pounds lost on 5/26/10 -- 193.6

*** 25 pounds lost on 6/16/10 -- 189.2

*** 30 pounds lost on 7/12/10 -- 183.6

*** 35 pounds lost on 8/16/10 -- 178.8

*** 40 pounds lost on 10/13/10
