performance: losing 2.1 lb a week

I've always struggled with weight. I came from a LARGE family. We're all pretty's called "the Murray Fat Back"! I have four 6'2 to 6'7 brothers. Tall, long limbs and thick in the mid-section. For a female, this body type is disastrous.
I struggled as a teen. I was fairly thin. Then I got breasts. Oh God did I get breasts!!! I wore two bras, I got raw spots when I ran. I finally dropped out of cheering when I was called sloth. Tall and lanky and quite thin at the time....and HUGE breasts. I resorted to large wool sweaters in the winter and fleece vests even in the hot summer days. I was always fairly active but I just couldn't be the person on the outside that I was on the inside.
Finally, I did it. I got a reduction. I felt like a million bucks! Year and years of parties, bars, great times, and some not so great times...I met Jeremy. Wow! Mr. Wonderful! We married and were active together. Hikes, camping and long walks. I was really starting to match the person I was on the inside. We had family problems and I lost a brother in 2006. He was 36. I though heart problems due to the way we all lived our lives. I suppose The Murray's were all cleared of lifestyle changes wher we found out that it was an embolism. The blind leading the blind and chosing to stay blind.
Jerm and I married on July 7, 2007. We had an unexpected pregnancy and gave birth to our daughter on Sept 19, 2009. She's smart and beautiful. I came out of the hospital at 186. And struggled everyday since. With a husband that works and coaches basketball and a very active child, it's hard to find the time. I started focusing on our new house that we built in 2010. And filling that house with wonderful smells from the kitchen. After months of trying, I have finally perfected my homemade pizza...alway having a few beers while i cooked. Now I'm 33. Time to make my outside match my inside again. Not just for me this time though!
