I'm a 28 year old woman living in Roshester, originally from Michigan...I am the only girl out of 5. I have 4 very large brothers. 3 of them are over 6ft. I used to smoke cigarettes, and I do still crave them. I do not drink. I am of Irish, Scottish, Canadian, French, German, and Native American Heritage. And I am a Muslim, I converted to Islam from Christianity in 2009. 2009 was a year of changes for me... It was the year I started getting healthy, applied to college, met and married my husband, and was the year I moved to NY.

I started my weight loss Journey in 2009... I went from 310lbs down to 240lbs. I had a lot of time on my hands and used that to exercise. I lost 30lbs in the first month...that was from me changing my diet and exercising. One thing I know helped me lose weight was helping my Dad scrap rundown trailers. Weilding a crowbar and a sledge hammer can really burn it off. Then loading the steel and having a cool down break as we drove to the scrap yard then unloading the steal from the truck was great. I know that I can do this.

As in our American History, I need to be like our ancestors and not give up... I am on here to get healthy for today and for tomorrow. I don't know what my life will bring, but I want to be prepared for what ever it may be.

I hit a wall last year in my weight loss, I had gotten down to 225 then my grandfather died and I spent 2 weeks laying in bed crying... and well... emotionally eating. I have since gained 50lbs and am back up to 280lbs. I am starting anew...
