So glad you decided to drop by. :)

If you're looking for've found her!!!

So much has changed in my life since the last time I was on SP (which I'm ashamed to say was about a year ago). My husband, Brian, passed away a few months ago, and that has greatly affected me in so many ways. I miss him every day and wish he was still here. Luckily, I am the proud GiGi (grandmom) of 2 beautiful boys. My oldest daughter, her husband & their son live with me, so to say the least, we have a full house. There are 4 of us, along with 4 dogs and 3 cats...LOL. I don't mind it most days, but like everything else in life, it has its days.

I have a full life, but for far too long I've put myself last, & not really stuck to trying to live a healthier lifestyle. NO MORE!!! I've decided the best way to find more about who I am & what I want out of life is to become LESS of the person I am now & to become active & healthy.

I've struggled with my weight since I hit puberty, but the largest I'd ever been in my life was in 2009 when I weighed in at 288 lbs. It was extremely hard for me to accept I had gotten to that point, but even harder for me to comprehend that less than 5 years earlier, I was about 170 lbs. I completely broke down that day & decided something had to be done. I realized I've been trying to lose weight for over 2 decades & I knew what caused me to gain weight & what didn't, so I decided to slowly cut back on the amount I was eating & started to exercise more. I started by going to the gym 2 or 3 days/wk for 30 minutes & progressed to 5 days/wk for 1 hour. I found that exercise helped me have a better attitude & love myself more.
Sadly...I didn't stick with it. I fell into depression and just gave up. I've been through more in the last couple of years than I really want to get into, but I found myself back up to 270 lbs. I stayed the course for a few months, but with the stress of caring for my husband and the rest of my family, I put myself last again. Then with the passing of my husband, I did not care about my health or anything else. I have realized that I can't just keep going the way I've been going so I'm back and starting at square one. I've got a way to go, but I know if I keep on going I'll eventually get there.

When I get to the end of this great journey....I want my family & friends to be able to say....GIGI DISAPPEARED!!!!!

    I was wondering if you knew what happened to the group and Addicted
    2donuts? We can no longer get into the site and converse with each other. I haven't heard
    anything from her in several days. I hope she is okay but I don't know what happened to the
    group post. I hope your well and doing great with your measurements.
    If you hear anything please let me know.

    Thank you
