I just recently turned 40 and have battled with my weight for about 15 years. I used to be one of the skinny people that could eat whatever I wanted and never gain a pound. Of course, as I got older that all changed. I have tried other diets before and was even successful with a 40 lb weight loss on the Low-Carb diet. I say successful, but how successful was it when I gained every pound back??

My whole family is overweight and when I realized that my 15 year old daughter was looking too much like Mommy, I decided that I had to try to set a good example for her before it was too late. I realize that the only way to be truly healthy and lose weight the right way was to make a complete lifestyle change. I am looking forward to using SP for encouragement and accountability. I want to make a healthy change for my entire family.

Hey Melisa - It's been a while since I've connected with you. I've been sick again and this cold really zapped me. Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful time this weekend. I've seen Annie on Broadway and I just loved it. I'm looking to get back to some exercise this weekend and maybe writing up some meal planning.
Have a wonderful time with your family, my friend,
Love,

Thanks for your kind words on my blog entry - it is greatly appreciated. Everyone here has been a tremendous source of support!
I'm doing my best to take good care of myself and get back on track. I know that getting healthier is the best thing I can do to increase my chances of having a baby one day!

Hey Melisa - My new floors are done and most everything is back in place and I'm back on SP!! I was glad to see that you and your mom were spending time exercising - that's awesome. It sounds as if you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. As you know I've been out of the loop, but I'm back and ready to get back at it. I just wanted to say thanks for all of your notes.
Love ya,
