I am 36 yrs old, married to a wonderful and understanding man, with 2 boys age 14 and 2. I have struggled with my weight since my teen years. I am a chronic yo-yo dieter...I have lost nearly 100 lbs 3 seperate time in my life and have gained it all back + some...I am hoping to change that this time. I saw a picture of myself at my sons birthday party and something hit me... I don't want to be an embarresment to my children, not to mention I would like to live long enough to see them grow up...at 309 lbs, I could barely go anymore... something had to be done.
I started doing the weight loss thing on March 2, 2009.
I did really well up until Sept 2009 and have since gained 30 lbs back. I am going to attempt this again. My problem really is not losing, it is maintaining!!!

I know that I still have a long road ahead of me...but 160lbs I will be by ...well, we will see!

My Goals:
My first goal is to eat healthier...I dont do fried foods anymore and try to eat more veggies, which is hard because I am a pickier eater.
My second goal is my weight, obviously...the 215 mark would be good...but the 160 mark would be better!!!

My Program:
I need to become friends with my elliptical machine and get back at it. I have reduced calories to 1200-1550, but I know that exercise is what I have to do.

Personal Information:
I live in a small town in PA, it is just a hole in the wall. really! Anybody wishing to chat, my email address is pyharner@gmail.com.

Other Information:
My husband and my boys are my life... my main goal for getting healthier, of course the smaller, more attractive me is also a bonus.LOL

    Thanks for adding me as a friend. I added you back. I just read your page heading, and I couldn't agree more. This lifestyle change has to be something that you want bad enough to get off your behind and do it. There is no pill, or anyone, that can make you change if you don't want to in the depths of your soul, heart, mind and body. It took me 42 years to finally want it that badly. It sounds like you have hit that realization too. Good for you ! ! If you ever need anything like motivation, support, or just a good swift kick in the pants, just look me up. I'm on here all day off and on. Have a great day of making good choices for yourself, you deserve it.---Sherry

    Welcome to YOU on a Diet! Yes, I have to lose a whole person, too...and I don't llike to think about that very much. I'm lots older than you are, so the going is slow. But like you, I've promised myself to keep at it. Wish Spark had existed when I was a new mom!

    Good luck to you!
