Melme's Journey

I'm a 20-something teacher that's about to make some big life changes and I need a body to match!

I've been overweight since third grade or so and the pounds just gradually increased over time until I was fed up and decided to take charge of my life! It may be slow going, but I'm in this for the long haul! This is not a diet. This is not a fad. I'm done letting the weight hold me back!

I haven't seen any activity from you lately - just wondering how you're getting along? I disappeared from Spark People for a while too - but I see that I still need to track my food and read up on all the good articles on here to stay on course. I hope all is well with you! emoticon
