I have been through "LIFE" in the past 20 years and I learned to depend on food to get me through a lot of it. I am reaching for the weight I was at just before I got pregnant with my son, which was 158 pounds. While even that is a little overweight for my height, It is a far cry from where I am right now. Some people might think I am stupid for showing my ACTUAL WEIGHT LOSS ticker on this page. I want you all to see where I went. I want EVERYONE to hold me accountable for sticking to my guns and encouraing me to really make this happen this time! I am preparing for gastric bypass surgery at this time. Will keep you all posted on my progress.

Fitness Minutes: 288

My Goals:
My short term goals will always be 10% of my weight. Those will be re-evaluated when I reach each short term goal. (Ex. 10% of my 1st weight (398.8) is 359. So when I reach 359, my next short term goal will be 10% of that) until I am down to about 160 or so! Smaller numbers are encouraging and those LONG TERM goals can look sooooooooo far away make things very discouraging. Baby steps......THEY WORK! I KNOW I CAN DO THIS!

My Program:
I LOG everything that I put past my lips....EVERYTHING! This makes me realize what I am eating and makes me eat healthier and smarter. I have also gotten a few people to be my accountability buddy. While my weight IS embarrasing and normally I would not have told it to anyone, when people are "WATCHING" you, it is a PRIDE thing. You ARE more accountable to yourself as well! It has been working! TRY IT!

Personal Information:
I am originally from Galena Park, TX. it is a little suburb of Houston. I just moved to Lodi, CA a year ago to be with the love of my life. We are probably moving back to Houston, TX in the fall of this year to be near my family. I am 37 years old. I will be 38 on June 20, 2008. I have an 18 year old son. Feel free to post a message or send me an email.

Other Information:
My boyfriend proposed to me on December 23, 2007. We were married on October 18. 2008. He is the BEST PERSON I HAVE EVER KNOWN.

    You can do this. My girlfriend weighed 340, wore 5X-6X clothing and is down to 211 and wearing 18. She looks totally different. It really shows in your face. The rest will happen. Good luck
