I am an obese, 45-year-old mom of 7. I've struggled with my weight since puberty when I thought I was fat because I had curves when the other girls didn't. I let myself spiral upwards in weight until I truly became fat then obese.

With a family of 9 life is CRAZY! I've lost myself along the way making myself have one foot in the grave and chaos in every aspect of my life.

I've chosen the name "Overhauling-Me" because that's what I'm doing. I need one huge overhaul! I know deep down there is a classic beauty who runs well in ALL aspects. It will be a Loooong project but definitely worthwhile.

Starting Weight: 3/26/11 325lbs BMI: 45.32 Morbidly Obese
25 Pounds Gone: 5/20/11 299.8lbs BMI: 41.81 Morbidly Obese

Update: January 3, 2012
So, 2011 didn't end up to well. After losing 30lbs by June 8th I fell off track. Thankfully I didn't put all my weight back on and finished the year down eight pounds. Weighed in at 317. Here's to a new year.

    I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who has a problem with my home scale being really inconsistent. I still use it just out of curiosity but I really only rely on the one at the pharmacy. I can step on my scale 3 times and get 3 different weights. And I'm not talking about a pound or two difference; it can be up to 5 or 6 pounds different! It's so frustrating! I saw where you mentioned this problem on the weigh-in thread in the One Hundred in One Year group and thought I'd let ya know you aren't alone!!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope your husband is on the mend soon. Mine was only a partial tear, and I just had my MRI on Friday (over 2 months since my injury), so surgery is fairly unlikely at this point. I will say though that I think physio has made all the difference in my recovery. I'm still a ways off from "normal", but soo much better than I was just a few weeks ago!
