Hi, my name is Monica. I originally joined SP at 179. I had never weighed that much and my daughter was 5 months old and I thought it was time to take off the weight. When I started the weight started melting off and before I knew it I had lost 21 pounds and I was sitting at 158. That was still about 30 pounds from where I wanted to be but a good start. I had so much energy and I felt better than I had in a while. I hit a plateau shortly after that. In March I took a voluntary lay off from work. I still wasn't losing any weight and i was extremely frustrated by this time so I decided that while I was laid off I would do and eat what I wanted. When I returned to work I had gained 13 pounds back and I just gave up. I tried to get back on track but I just couldn't find the motivation to do it. January of 2008 came along and I got on the scale and weighed 205. I decided that there was no way that I could just sit there and keep gaining weight. From January until the beginning of April I lost 9 pounds. (not very good at all) I've decided to toughen up and get this done once and for all. So, here we go!!!!!

    Hi Monica, so glad you stopped by and soooooo glad to hear your hand is healing well. I'm with you on the weight gain sorry to say, this past round as Admin has taken it's toll on me and I'm WAY up there now so time to just suck it up and start again. I know we can do this, we just need to both have our heads in the game and mine is slowly but surely getting there again emoticon . emoticon
