Hello! I am a 26-year-old woman who has been obese since preschool. I've worked my whole life to accept myself how I am. Now that I am comfortable with how I look and feel, more weight problems have come up- my husband and I have not been able to conceive for over three years. So it's time to work on my weight for health and family reasons. I'm looking to meet some friends who are also on a journey to health and happiness so that we can all encourage each other, console during the more difficult steps, and celebrate our successes. If you are looking for a friend to help you through, just send me a hello :)

My Goals:

*Weight loss of 50 lbs by 1/31/12 (one year from when I rejoined my gym
*Eating homemade (and healthy) meals 5 days a week

Personal Information:
I live in Wisconsin with my husband and our two dogs (Ellie and Odie), two frogs, and turtle. I have a brother who lives in Ohio and sister who lives in Arizona, but I haven't been to visit either one (would love to someday). I was born and raised in Chicago and still feel like that is my second home. I have a bachelor's degree in Therapeutic Recreation and am back in school full-time (while still working full-time) to earn my bachelor's in Special Education.

Other Information:
I love reading, writing, spending time with my dogs, walking, hiking, camping, canoeing, kayaking, travelling, shopping, cooking, playing board games, listening to music, and watching television and movies.
