My name is Melissa and I live in the midwest. I am a married mom of 2; a 7 and 4 year old. I am a recently laid off Social Worker (as of 6-30-11) I have been yoyoing the scale since I was around 10 mainly becasue I grew alot between 10 and 15 that my weight just started to even out. I became more active with Tae Kwon Do and also did Cheerleading in High school. When I became less active my intake stayed the same. I was never really educated untill this past year (2010) that there was such a thing as calories in calories out!! Who would have thunk? So now that I am aware of this I have promised myself that I will always educate my children on healthy eating and staying fit!! My husband who also weight's in around 425 has struggled with his weight since I have met him. I am concrned about his health and the health of my children!!

My goal is to loose 50lbs
Work out at least 3days a week.
Drink all my water daily, and get fruits and veggies in!
And to prioritize my time better! (work, school, health, and family.)

I don't want to be "skinny" I want to be comfortable with me!
