I'm 5'0" tall and have been there since Middle School (I'm 25 now). So, I decided a long time ago that I needed to lose weight since I wasn't going to get any taller. There were other reasons of course (see my sparkpage) but that was one of them.
I joined SP in March and I'm so excited about this site. I've always wanted to lose weight but I didn't know what I was doing and didn't know how to correct that. I reached my heaviest weight ever in November of 2007-250lbs and almost had a heart attack from the shock when I stepped on the scale...
I have a significant amount of weight to lose (currently 240lbs) so I know this will be a long process. I'm still excited about living in a smaller body.
So...I plan to be around often and I hope to become an active part of this team. ^_^
