I am excited to be here, like most people I have tried everything and really its about time to just make a lifestyle change and quit looking for the quick fix. I have acid reflux and hope that I can change that through exercise and eating right, hopefully by seeing everyone else meet their goals I can remain motivated and on track . I am planning on receiving my diving certification soon and that means squeezing into the sausage casing that is known as a wet suit, that's my main motivation is to look less lumpy.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog! I just found the Inside Out Weight Loss group, podcast, etc. It is great so far...

    I grew up in TX (Wichita Falls and Fort Worth). I also lived in Austin, Carrollton, Odessa, Belton, Temple, and Duncanville. What part of the state are you in?
