Hello Everyone, I'm Heather and I'm ready to start living this life to the fullest and I'm starting with the overdue and necessary journey "battle of the bulge". I've pretty much been heavy since pre-teen, and so it's a mental thing for me as well as physical.
I've succeeded before however, my highest at 296 lbs, and I got down to 217 lbs. Eventually an excuse of vacation getting off the diet, struggling to get back on, life events and the passing of my dear Mom, I made my way back up to 287 lbs. I'm now down to 273 lbs, 14 lbs loss since March 18th, when I finally put the foot down on myself (lol) and got serious. I'm happy to have found this site and looking forward to meeting positive like minded people.
(My handle was suppose to be Ready4Life, opps..lol...well I'm just going to stick with this one)
1/18/10 - Unfortuantly after losing 40lbs in 2008, I'm back up to my top weight. I had a bad car accident that left me in a lot of pain, and led to emotional eating.
I'm back, Today is day 1. I'm hopeful that I can have the same success as I did in 2008! I now an extra added incentive, I'm going to Hawaii in August 2011 :)
