I have tried and tried to drop the weight, but always end up putting it all back on. I want to get lower in weight than I can ever remember being and stay their, but I need help and support to do so.

It's silly the way life works sometimes. When I was actually at a half decent weight I always thought I was fat and now...what I'd give to be back at that weight again!

So much for that, but I'm going to work hard and see just were that gets me in the next six months.

Feb. 17 = Down 13 lbs
March 2 = Down 14.6 lbs, 7" on waist, 6" on hips, 1" on Neck
March 9 = Down 17 lbs, 7" on waist, 6" on hips, 1" on Neck
March 16 = Down 20 lbs, 8.5" on waist, 8.5" on hips, 1" on Neck
April 11 = Down 23.8 lbs, 8.5" on waist, 8.5" on hips, 1.5" on Neck
April 20 = Down 25.4 lbs, 9.5" on waist, 8.5" on hips, 1.5" on Neck
April 22 = Down 26.2lbs, all same
April 24 = Down 27.2lbs
April 29 = Down 28.4lbs,10.5"on waist,9.25"on hips,1.75"on Neck
