Hi My name is Carol and bellow was when I started getting healthy, about 5 years ago, which is crazy, so long ago, I have since gained all the weight back and then some, I ballooned up to 253lbs! I can not believe it, thats about 25lbs more that where I started at 5 years ago, Since they I got married, have my own place, hired a personal trainer, and am starting Yoga with one of my best friends. Me and her are going to motivate ourselves to do this together, my goal is 60lbs by the summer, which would out me at where I was at the end of my losses from 5 years ago, I still have all the clothes in my closet, so heres to wearing them again! I can do it this time, because I am out of time to do this and be in my 20's!

Hi my name is Carol I am 19 years old and sick of my up and down weight. I just maxed out at 223lbs. I have never been this heavy before. This is not my first try and weight loss...more like my 5th try. I just rejoined the gym so lets see what happens.

I missed weight watchers this week. I am quite dissappointed I missed it. I am going to go next week though. I think I might have gained but im not sure. I got on the scale last night and it said 192 but I dont know how accurate the scale is.
