A new journey

I am a 44 year old mother of three sons. I live in British Columbia, Canada and my husband, sons and four cats (they just seem to keep showing up). I am very short so I have always found it hard to keep weight off. Even when I was 109 pounds (high school) I wore a size 9 and my clothes were tight. My doctor says he will be happy to see me at 120 but I know when I get there he will say to lose more. I am a stay-at-home mom and we will on 5 acres in the country.

For the last few years I have been under enormous stress which has added about 60 pounds to my already obese figure. I have been taking Wellbutrin for 5 years and it helps a bit. I have major in-law issues that I am sure everyone is sick and tired of hearing about but I need to vent.

On March 19th, 2010, I started taking Meridia to help with weightloss. I am hoping it will help. My doctor will only let me take it for 3 months. I am hoping in that time that I can lose enough weight that I will feel more confident and want to keep the weight off. I have been a binge eater for many years and I read that Meridia may help.

I need LOTS of support and have lots of support to offer. Leave me a message if you would like.

My Goals:
I want to improve my health and have energy to play with my children. I want to lower my cholesterol and blood sugar numbers and feel better about myself.

My Program:
I keep my calorie limit between 1200 and 1500 daily. The problem is that I gain on 1500 and stay the same on 1200. I need to exercise more to rev up my metabolism.

Personal Information:
I live in British Columbia, Canada with my husband and three sons. We also have three cats, one of whom is 20 years old.
