The Laughing Ladybug

My name is Melissa. I'm 44. I have lost 68 pounds. I am looking for more support as I lose the last 10 pounds on my weight loss journey.

Things about me: I have always loved ladybugs. I have 4 ladybug tattoos. I started my ladybug obsession when I was in my teens. It's kind of died down now that I'm in my 40's but it used to be really crazy and obsessive where I had tons of ladybug things/decorations in every room of my home.

My name is Melissa. I'm 44. I have lost 68 pounds. I am looking for more support as I lose the last 10 pounds on my weight loss journey.

I have 3 children ages 25, 22 and 20. My youngest son just graduated from High School. I also have a 3 year old grandson. Life is really good for me right now.

I have had tremendous losses of life in my family. I think that is what led to my weight gain to 201 pounds. My father died of ALS, my brother in law and my cousin took their own lives in the last 3 years. Just a lot of loss and how I handled it was eating to stuff the feelings down, down, down.

I really love food and love to eat. Food is a drug for me and unfortunately one that I "have" to deal with each day. Unlike cigarettes and alcohol and drugs, food is something I HAVE to consume. Learning to control my consumption has been the most challenging thing for me, yet the most rewarding. I am happy I have gone down the weight loss trail and look forward to my continued progress!

My Program:
Sparkpeople is providing so much information for me!! I have been getting more healthier over the last 3 years. My top weight was 203 pounds. I tried numerous diets that DID work but I didn't feel supported. I have been on SP since May of 2013 and have found many friends who are experiencing the same journey as myself. I love this site!!

I am now tracking all my food and activity through SP.

Personal Information:
I live in Kansas but was born and raised in Texas, where I met my husband. We relocated to his home state of Oklahoma and he attended school, where after his graduation from OKLAHOMA STATE UNIVERSITY, we relocated again to Kansas for his job. Kansas is interesting but it's not home.

Other Information:
I love college football. Oklahoma STATE University is my FAVORITE TEAM EVER! Go Pokes! I love Big 12 football!
