Last summer I was on one of my famous i'm going to lose weight kicks, and joined this site. That was the extent of my effort until recently. I got in engaged and though this may sound superficial, the bride I always invisioned was not this heavy. I knew joining a weight loss program wasn't for me because if you tell me I can't eat certain things I WILL and then some. I am a master at sabotagging myself when it comes to dieting. I don't want to diet, I want to cut back. This is a lifestyle change and I know realistically I will not count calories for the rest of myself. I didnt want to set myself up to fail. I joined a gym, work out with a trainer for 25 min. a week, and the rest is up to me. Let me clue you I am the most unathletic person there is and have never got that high people get from working out. It's a struggle. It took me nine months to gain this weight, five and half years to maintain it, and by golly I don't care if it takes me two years, I will reach my goal, or land somewhere to close to it!

My Goals:
My son's at an age where he questions why I am "so fat" but not meaning any harm. My goal is to lose weight, be more entergetic, and be beautiful on my wedding day -- whenever that comes about.

My 1st goal: Complete 28 day bootcamp challenge/lose at least 8lbs.

My Program:
I'm the product of many failed diets and workout schedules that don't last more than a few consecutive days. I'm hoping to utilize this site and have the results I have always dreamed of.

Personal Information:
Laughter, thunderstorms, and seeing the world through my son's eyes are my greatest joys. I'm simplistic. I don't value tangible things but rather making memories with those I love. My socks never match. I bite my nails. I curse like a salior, but am a huge kid at heart. 28 years old and very passionate about life.
