Looking to lose 100 lbs

I'm married to my soul mate and am the mother of 4 beautiful children who I live my entire life for. My ultimate goal is to lose 100 lbs and if I reach that goal, I'm hoping to take my dream vacation to Hawaii. I'm hoping that this site helps me to reach my goals and dreams...

When I was young I never had a problem with my weight because I played any and all sports that I could. Up until my senior year of high school when, while playing soccer, I shredded my ACL and have had three knee surgeries since then. I went off to college...gained weight...got married...gained weight...had one baby...gained weight...had baby #2...gained weight...baby #3...gained weight...baby #4 (and final)...gained weight. I am hoping, now that we are happy with the family that we have, it is time for me to be happy with who I am!!

It seems like I have dieted for the last 15 years, on and off, I would hate to see how much I would weigh if I hadn't. Now it's time to change the way I live and start eating and living healthy and happy all of the time!! Diet fads have never worked long term for me, so I am trying to change how I live little by little...I started by drinking atleast 8 glasses of water a day (and pretty well gave up soda), charting what I eat and paying attention to when I am full (and not when my plate was clean, as I was brought up to do), and still eating what I like, just in moderation.

I'm very happy with the progress that I have made so far...and the friends and support that I have on this site have been a real key to it all!! Together we will get there!!

Hi Joy! Thanks for stopping by my blog on kettlebell training and leaving me a nice comment. I didn't really know where to begin, either. I just started reading lots here on the internet and watching videos, and I decided to just give it a go. It's fun and really challenging! A good place to learn more is right here on SP....there is a team calle Kettlebell Challenge that is GREAT! Full of wonderful info and nice people. Best wishes... emoticon

Joy, I'm in the same boat with the swimsuit. I usually get the one-piece kind that look like a dress....when the dress part floats up there's flesh-colored material that disguises my jelly rolls. Mine is a mile too big now, between being from 25 pounds ago, as well as stretched out from washing and wearing for about 5 years now. But I don't want to spend money on a new one now! I plan to be at least a couple of sizes smaller next summer!

P.S. Thanks for the compliments. :)

Joy, I just checked out your photos - not sure why I never did before. But you've got some really beautiful kids. I just wanted to point that out in case you didn't notice, lol!
