My journey to loose a lot of weight, to get fit and healthy!

I am 29 years old and am struggling with my weight problem. I am a full time mom, and full time college student. I have been overweight almost all of my life. I don't remember ever being under 200 pounds, or wearing anything less then a size 18. I need to get healthy, and I need to get fit, and this is how I am going to do it............

I started this a few years ago. My life and my motivation got in the way, and I gained more than I lost, after loosing close to 20lbs. So, instead, I gained all that back, and added another 20lbs on top of it. Something's gotta give, and that something needs to be me...

My Goals:
My goals....Well, I have a lot I guess. I want to look good, I want to feel good, I want to stop taking the 4 medications I am on for my blood pressure, I want to live a long healthy life, and grow old with my husband. I want to watch my grandchildren grow up (no, I don't have any, lol, my oldest is only 7). I want more time on this Earth.

My Program:
There really isn't anything special I am trying this time. I have done Atkins, South Beach, Weight Watchers, you name it, I've probably done it. Now, I am just going to watch what I eat, and change my whole eating lifestyle. I am going to pass on the bag of chips, and grab some carrots instead (I so love carrots anyway). I am walking more with my family, and making use of the old dust collector in the corner (the treadmill). I have Physical Therapy for a pinched disc in my back, and imbalanced hip alignment, and have learned a lot of new exercises in addition to walking.

Personal Information:
I am from Upstate New York, very upstate. My name is Rachel, I am 29 years old. Married for 10 years to the love of my life, and have 3 children. Gabby is 9, Hunter is 4, and Michael who is in Heaven would have been 6.

I am a book freak, and read just about anything I can get my hands on. I am addicted to horror movies, don't know why, just am. I love to cross stitch, sew, cooking and photography. I love to garden, and go camping with my family. I love music, all kinds.

Other Information:
I love to read vampire books. I love horror movies, even the cheapy B movies. I love anything that lets me escape reality. Science Fiction, historical romance. I love to escape from the real world.
