My Name is Melissa but everyone calls me Lissy. I am a 41 yr old single mom of 2 boys now19and20yrs of age. So, its me time and time for me to get movitated to lose the weight with no more excuses. I have a very supporitve B/F who thinks i am fine the way I am but Im not happy so that is all that matters right????
I was able to lose 65 Lbs back in the late 90's and kept it off for 4 yrs but then I got lazy and lost my motivation. I had signed for this website last yr and was good for a while but then dropped off and lost motivation. Well, I'm back now and going to really try hard this time. I had joined a weight loss challange at work on January 27th 2010 and my weight then was 222lbs and after 5 weeks in the challange I have lost 25lbs. I am back on this website now looking for friends to keep me motivated its getting hard to stick with the plan again although I'm losing the weight I just dont see it yet LOL. But, I have made myself a promise that I am going to do it this time. NO EXCUSES!!!!

Member Since: 2/23/2009

Fitness Minutes: 120

My Goals:
My goal is to lose at least 60Lbs and get back into the clothes in my closet I havent been able to wear for a few yrs now.

My Program:
What I am doing to meet my goals is to watch every calorie I eat and have cut way down on my sugar I dont cut it all out cause if I crave sugar I suck on a small lillipop and that cures the craving and its only 40 calories. And I do 30 mins of exercise 5 days a week. and Im steadily losing 2 a week if not a bit more.

Personal Information:
I am from Northeastern Pa. I am 5'3 and a mom of 2 boys 19 and 20 and I have a wonderful boyfriend who is supportive.

Other Information:
Let's see here...I am also a person that loves to crochet. and my favorite movie quote is from Steele Magnolias and is....
I would rather 30 minutes of wonderful then a lifetime of nothing special.

    Hello Lissy, Thanks so much for replying to my blog. I never thought of gum. What a great idea. I know when I clean up the kitchen I do nibble and if I added it up every day its probably more than I realize. . So I already put the gum in the kitchen its perfect. I get a piece and then start my cleaning. End of problem. As you say you can use it in other tempting circumstances as well. Thanks again for the great idea. Looks your your doing well with your loss. Keep up the good work. You are right your kids are grown, NOW IT IS YOUR TIME!!!!!!

    Good Luck : )
