I'm ready to lose some serious weight. I've always been thin. Never had to worry about what I ate/drank or when I ate/drank or if I exercised so I developed a bunch of bad habits like drinking tons of diet coke and coffee, not drinking hardly any water or eating fruits and vegetables and eating alot of refined carbos and chocolate.

When I had my first child I returned to my pre-baby weight. Then, within the span of 6 years, I had a miscarriage, the birth of another baby, quit work to be a stay at home mom, moved across state for my husband's job, and then lost both my parents to heart attack and breast cancer.
I am a christian (growing stronger in my faith after a couple of shaky years) who is now 130lbs.+/- overweight and really have no idea how to lose all that weight I have gained.

I am 42 years old, married with 2 elementary age children. I am looking forward to making great supportive friends who want to lose weight.

So far I have signed up for Spark-people but haven't really put any action to the plan. I would appreciate any and all suggestions to help get me going physically, mentally, &/or emotionally.

P.S. My computer is on the fritz so I have limited availability with another computer so I will be posting as much as I can as time and access permits.
So happy to have found this place and look forward to getting to know a great group of people!

Personal Information:
Never Quit
Don't quit when the tide is lowest,
it's just about to turn;
Don't quit over doubts and questions,
there's something you may learn.
Don't quit when the night is darkest,
For it's just a while 'til dawn;
Don't quit when you've run the farthest
For the race is almost won.
Don't quit when the hill is steepest,
For your goal is almost nigh;
Don't quit for you're not a failure
Until you fail to try.

Some people are carbon copies.

Others make their own impression.

    Good morning, Deedee.

    I hope all is going well with you & your family. As I was looking through our fresh start team members, I decided to stop by each person's page. Please stop by the boards to let us know how you are doing. If you have been discouraged or having a rough time, you can get yourself back on task. Just focus on taking steps forward. Any steps forward count in helping you achieve whatever your goals are. If I can help you in any way, please stop by my page or spark mail me. We are here to help each other. That is what it is all about.

    I hope you have a great & movin' day. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
