Hi, my name is Heather. I am married and have a two year old son.

I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. I'm sure the story is familiar to some of you. I try a diet, lose some weight, but then 'fall off the wagon' so to speak and gain it all back plus some. I can't really say that I've tried 'it all' and 'it all' has failed: I can say that I had pretty much given up trying.

I don't know what is different about this time, but I feel like this time I'm going to make it. Maybe I'm just finally ready.

I posted on FaceBook, that I was starting a diet.

Past experience has taught me that if I diet in secret I cheat ALOT in secret. I think in the past my attempts to diet were so secretive because I didn't want anyone to see me fail, and I didn't want to listen to a lot of 'helpful advice' or reminders - 'Are you sure you should be eating that?'.

But something is different this time.

I guess I'm doing this for me, not other people. They can say what they want. I don't give a rip. I guess I figured that being upfront about it this time would keep me accountable, and give me an open forum to share my successes.

So far everything is going well.

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to lose 100 lbs and become a beautiful, curvy 125.

My short term goals are a little more modest. I just want to be able to go to Wal-mart, or any store for that matter, and be able to buy clothes in the regular section. No More Plus Size Section For Me!!!
