Hi there!

I'm 37 years old and have been overweight pretty much all of my life. The difference today, and why I'm here, is that I've never quite felt THIS unhealthy. Sure, I was overweight, but I was always able to keep up and do (most of) the things others did. Now, I'm feeling sluggish and weak.

My husband and I used to go hiking at least every weekend, but we haven't been in almost a year! I'm not the only one suffering - he's gained weight, too.

My first goal is to lose 34-40 lbs by 10/19/06. That is when we are going to PA for my sister-in-law's wedding. We live on the other side of the country so I'm DREADING the long flight because I'm sure I won't fit well in the seat. Ugh. That's just so humiliating to admit. Also, because of the distance only his mom and one sister were able to attend our wedding. I will meet his entire family during our trip. I know it's too late now to make the (physical) impression I would want to make, but at the very least, I want to look better than I did in our wedding photos. I weigh about 20lbs more than I did on our wedding day. That's just so terrible.

Most recently, we were both VERY successful on the South Beach Diet. His cholesterol was at an all-time low and we both lost a ton of weight. Of course, we got careless and before long ALL of the weight and then some came right back.

Today, I joined Ladies Workout Express and Spark People. I feel committed to reaching my first goal. I'll save the rest of my goals for another time.

Best wishes,
