Once upon a time I was very active on SparkPeople, it was a great time full of water, veggies, and lots of exercise. Since then things have changed. I started drinking more soda than water for the first time in all my (then) 27 years. I fell into a dark sedentary place filled with late night popcorn and fudge brownies. Then I saw the light...myself in a picture of my 6 month old son opening his first Christmas gifts. I've always been big but at that moment, I realized how much I had let myself go. I'm seriously huge, and I'm ashamed. I could blame it on all the life changes, moving away from the city into our first home, a fixer-upper that required so much time and energy that I didn't feel like a I *needed* to exercise. As we got more and more done on the house, I just got more and more relieved that all that "work" was over with. Then I found out I was pregnant. I had gestational asthma so honestly, I'm not sure I could have exercised had I tried...but I never tried. And the "morning" sickness....I threw up several times a day for over 6 months, yet I still gained 18lbs (how in the hell did THAT happen?!). But now that's all behind me, my baby boy is 6 months old, and I'm 40 pounds heavier than I've ever been. I know that this is not the life I want to live. I lost my way before but somehow I've found the path again and I'm ready to get started on this journey!

    I'm a redhead, and so I spontaneously and randomly urge people to wear sunscreen. (and then wonder, did I just say that outLOUD?)....I've never minded the freckles, but now that I'm aging, I'm more concerned about the dermatologists viewpoint... Please forgive my forwardness...

    Would you like to be my weight loss buddy??? :) We both have the same amount of weight, pretty much the same age, and I think it would be awesome if we could lose it together and keep each other on track!!! :)
