Happy with every other aspect...

Since 2004 I've gained almost 100 pounds! I was diagnosed with PCOS and gallstones in '04 as well. My highest weight ever was 301 lbs (01/07/09). It was a very depressing day to have seen that number on the scale. I started my path that day. I was able to lose 45 lbs by May of '09 and kept it off until Early '10. My new happy marriage and being too comfy has caused me to allow myself to gain around 30 lbs back. I am ready to take this weight off for good! There's no looking back now! No going ...

The pounds will be coming off!

I'll be focusing on a lot of short term goals for now. It helps to keep me motivated. I personally feel that lots of small goals help avoid getting overwhelmed.

My long term goal is to get down to a healthy weight and be consistent with exercise and healthy eating! To me, it's not about being skinny to look good. It's all about living a long time! Living a healthy, active life, And enjoying every minute of it!

I'm glad i have my husband Jonathon, family and friends to support me. Anyone else wanna be friends, just add me!
Thanks for taking the time to learn a little about me!

**Sorry for being so tardy in welcoming you**

emoticon Welcome to the 300+team. 300 is such a BIG number but if we persevere, focus and motivate one another we can reach our goals!
We have so much of life ahead of us and it is so much better to work on ourselves and reach for our goals.
We can do it-- we are worth the effort!
All we can do is take it one day, one bite, one pound at a time.
I am looking forward to supporting you in your quest for better health and a happier future.
