Hi. My name is Melissa. I have been married for 15 wonderful years to my husband Brad and we have four beautiful daughters: Kathryn (age 12), Bethany (age 9), Annalise (age 4) and Sariah (age 1). We live in a farming community in Missouri. My husband works for the local power company and I am a stay at home mom who homeschools and I do medical transcription out of my home. I never get more than 6 hours of sleep a night, but I wouldn't trade my crazy wonderful life for any other.

I came here to help keep myself on the right track. A couple of years ago I lost 115 pounds going from 270 to 155, but then I got pregnant and lost control. I ate whatever I wanted and became sedentary. Now that my youngest is almost one I got on the scale this morning and was mortified at what I saw. I have gained back ALL the weight down to the very pound and have to start over. I know I can lose the weight. I did it before and I can do it again. I hope this site can help me chart my progress and stay inspired to keep on the right track.

    You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck
    Happy Independence Day!
