A big hi and welcome to the team :-)
Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)
The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)
It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Hi, everyone, I'm Cami! I'm so glad I found a board for those of us who are vertically challenged. It's extremely difficult to compare weight loss with other people's pictures when they're so much taller. I'm 5'1", and losing 50 pounds on a 5'1" frame is significantly different than losing 50 pounds on a 5'8" frame.
Anyway, my name is Cami and I'm trying to lose 100 pounds. My weight problem began after I was diagnosed with cancer at 13 years old. It was just a little at first, then when I graduated from high school and became less active (I was an elite cheerleader and competitive swimmer), I gained around 80 pounds. So now I'm here, at 203 pounds (down from 215!). As you all know, since we're short, a lower weight is pretty much necessary for a healthy body fat percent.
Last week (5/22/12), I started phentermine. I've lost 8 pounds so far. It's helped with my appetite a lot and I'm hoping it's shrinking my stomach so when I'm eventually taken off, I will continue eating less.
Anyway, this is super long, so... yeah.
