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.

    Hi Krista! I eat the Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt and Caramel. I have three pieces each night and it totals 190 calories, which is a lot, but since I plan for it every day, it fits in and I look forward to having it with my popcorn. It takes care of sweet and salty and I usually have it when everything is done for the day and I'm ready to settle in and relax and watch a little tv before I go to bed. Thank you for all the kind words on my blogs! Things are going well, and I'm feeling pretty darn good! How are you doing these days? It's so good to see you on here!

    Thank you so much for the sweet compliments on my page. You are not that far off from me! You have, according to your page, 114 lbs to lose and I still have 87 to lose! That's not such a huge difference. You can do this. Maybe it will be easier with summer coming up and the kids out of school and the weather nicer? I'll be cheering for you!
