Hello Everyone! I am new to this site and I could use all the help and support that I can get. I have struggled with my weight for most of my life. During elementary school I can remember always being the second to last biggest person in my class. I guess I never developed healthy eating habits when I was younger, hence why I have struggled with my weight for most of my life. In Oct of 2007 I began WW's and I lost 50lbs in 6 months. During this time I was in college and being that I ate dining hall food it was much easier to make healthier choices. After graduating from college in May 2008, I lost my PT job I held throughout college, I couldn't find a new job and I became severely stressed and depressed. During this time period I began gaining back the weight I had worked so hard to lose.
Enough of that...Now it's two years later and I am engaged to the love of my life. We are getting married September 18th, 2010. I currently have a full time job, and I am also back in school getting my Masters in Human Services. I am so ready to take control of my life by decreasing my weight and becoming a healthier person. God has blessed me to be able to be the size that I am without having serious health problems and I thank him for that. Now it is time for me to make sure I don't develop and issues and take control. I would like to lose weight so that I can feel more comfortable and be able to be the best person all around that I can be!!

    ** a little late sorry

    Welcome to the 300+team. 300 is such a BIG number but if we persevere, focus and motivate one another we can reach our goals!
    We have so much of life ahead of us and it is so much better to work on ourselves and reach for our goals.
    We can do it-- we are worth the effort!
    All we can do is take it one bite, one day, one pound at a time.
    I am looking forward to supporting you in your quest for better health and a happier future.
