Hi, I'm Melanie and I need to lose a lot of weight. Weight has been an issue for most of my life. Once, in my early 20's, I lost nearly 90 pounds. Like Oprah, I think I can say that I was 140 for a day. Then, it started to go back up. I lost about 35 pounds before my wedding, nearly 12 years ago, but happily became pregnant just a month later. I've been gaining ever since! Now, my line is "I'm taking time for me." I get up early so that I have 45 minutes to an hour to exercise, and I've committed to a clean eating lifestyle. I'm looking forward to sharing some of my joys and frustrations here with the many supportive members of SparkPeople.
