Hi my name is Melissa, but my friends call me Lisa. I am a mother of three wonderful kids and a wife to an amazing man. I have started this journey because I weigh 366 pounds and decided I wanted a change, a lifestyle change.

My kids are 12, 10 and 8 and i pretty much have my hands full. my oldest just started playing basketball this year and i want to be able to get outside and play ball with her and not be out of breath or my back hurting so bad. I played basketball when i was in grade school and my first year in high school until I blew my knee out. then from there i didn't do much of anything, at this time i was a size 12. and when i couldn't play ball any longer i guess i just gave up. I loved playing ball so much that my dad told me that I had rather play ball than eat. which was true. I would stay out till 11 at night playing. (not on a school night). Anyways the dr. couldn't find anything but a pulled hamstring. which i thought was not right at all, because my knee hurt so badly.

After the ball playing i put my time and energy into hanging with friends. i wasn't into drugs or drinking or any of the sort. I went to church my 2nd year in high school and got saved. so i started to serve the Lord. My junior year I met my husband and in 1998 we got married. at that time I had gotten to a depressing size of 20. I tried to lose the weight and thought i was doing good. then I got pregnant with our first child. so after the birth of my daughter, i tried again to lose the weight, watching what i ate and walking. then i got pregnant with our son. which started the process over again, don't get me wrong even though my first two kids are only 16 months apart. we wanted to have them close together so that they would be closer.

After many failed attempts and wearing bigger clothes to hide the fat. when i did get pregnant with my third child and after i had my other daughter, my mom took her to church one night and everyone kept asking my mom "whose baby is that?" my mom would say that Lisa's, they would reply back with "Oh, I didn't know she was pregnant". I can't tell you in words how this made me feel. but being who I was and still am. I acted like it didn't bother me. I don't like showing my emotions. I show something everyone wants to see on the outside but on the inside I'm a totally different person. Only my husband and my best friend (which is my sister-in-law) knows the real me.

So getting started on this lifestyle change is very exciting to me. With all the success stories there are on spark people. i found one so far that actually related to me and I was blown away at how close her story was to mine. I want to do this for my kids and husband. my kids want me to ride the rides at Dollywood with them and most of them rides I can't fit into the seats. But i love doing stuff with the kids and my husband saids he loves me no matter what and its whatever i want to do. he is very supported in everything I do. But I mostly want to do this for Me. My mom passed away in 2005. at the age of 45. and I don't want that to be me. I want to live!! I want to be here for my kids and evenually God willing grandkids. Hopefully not in the to near future. lol.

Until next time
Lisa
