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.

Other Information:
Some people are carbon copies.

Others make their own impression.
