Hi. My name is Kimberly. I'm married with two children and we live in the 'burbs of New York City. We have four cats and a dog who thinks he's a cat.

I run my own business,

I am a stay at home/work at home mom.

In my spare time I love to write, photography, crafts, hang out on the computer, read, watch TV and SLEEP. Although I haven't been able to take any photos since I lost my beloved camera and now I don't have one and I feel so lost without it!

I have been overweight my entire life - literally! There are pictures of me at two years old and I was overweight. I was sickly as a child so just getting me to eat, no matter what it was, made my parents happy. I used to eat ENTIRE pepperoni sticks AND 1 pound bags of M&M's during grocery shopping trips once a week - and I do mean BOTH! The M&M's to/from the grocery store and the pepperoni stick while I followed my mom around shopping. So needless to say my poor eating habits started early on.

I don't blame my parents. I know they did things out of love. And at my age I have NO ONE to blame for my poor habits but myself.

I did have weight loss surgery (Roux-En-Y) back in 93'. I went from 364 pounds (I'm 5' 3") to 178 in about a year. In 95' I had a tummy tuck and a breast lift. That is also when I met my husband. LIFE WAS GREAT!!!

After my first pregnancy I started to gain A LOT of weight.... and the weight just kept piling on. I had tests done and it shows that my pouch lost it's shape, so basically I have nothing to "fill up" anymore. So I am always hungry!

I have severe anemia and I have received IV iron infusions and shots for it. I'm also B-12 Anemic. They say it's due to my surgery. So needless to say I have NO ENERGY whatsoever. Just getting out of bed some times is hard enough.

I want to and NEED to lose weight. No only for my health, but because I want to have a long life with my incredibly wonderful husband who loves me no matter what size I am, and my children. I also have NO self esteem whatsoever so I want to lose weight so I can look better and feel better about myself and so that I can truly enjoy life and live life. I am not doing that now. I'm just existing. I'm NOT living and I want to live!

Thanks to my friend Lexi I found Spark People and I hope and pray that this is the answer for me. That the tools and people here can help me to FINALLY come to grips with my weight and help me to make a change for the better.
