I certainly hope so. I feel like I've gone down this road so many times. Why should this one be any different? Well for starters, I've never attempted to "go public" with my weight loss, or even actively seek out support from my family and friends. Also, I've been voraciously consuming as much information as I can regarding fitness, nutrition, and weight loss from sources that I trust. One of my favorites is a podcast I found about a year ago (not sure if I can say the name of the podcast - would that be considered product promotion?).

I have been carrying around a few extra pounds since I hit puberty. I was a skinny kid before then, but never really that active or into sports. Combine that largely sedentary lifestyle with the flood of hormones and fast forward to January 2011, at age 35 and 170 pounds, my heaviest ever.

You may not think 170 is a big deal, but I've been dieting and exercising on and off since my early teens in an effort to combat my family's genetic tendency to be at 200 lb or more by age 30. I was born and raised in the American South, so you can imagine what my family's typical diet is like! I now live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and love getting outdoors to hike, bike, or just be (that is, as long as it's not raining or freezing!).

I was on SP for over a month before finally deciding to take the next step and create a page of my own. Why? Because since joining, I am now at 163 pounds. That's inspiration enough for me! I look forward to your support and to supporting you as we work to change our lives for the better. Peace.
