Hello All! I'm Jess and here's a little about me. I started getting heavy when I was 9yrs old, and coming from a family where most of the women are on the heavier side I couldn't allow that to happen to me, along with being uncomfortable in my own skin due to my weight. I'm a short little thing only 4' 11"and with my heaviest having had been almost 250 I had to do something. On April 18,2016 I had a Gastric Sleeve surgery and until September of 2016 everything was going good, slow, but good..., then it all stopped. So I'm here to get myself back on track with support from all, be supportive for all (even if I don't comment) and push myself to where I need to be. My long term goal is to be as close to 120 as possible, yup, I know it won't be easy and will take a lot of work but hey, I'm still young (just turned 44 in November) and I have plenty of time to reach my goal. Shrinking Shamrock away 😁🍀

My long term physical goal is to be able to do a cartwheel again without feeling like my arms are going to buckle under my own weight., silly, but that's what I WILL do again one day.

P S, there may be many occasions when I post something that sounds like I'm being a smart-ass, but that's because I'm trying to use humor to get people up motivated and moving as I need the sarcasm to push myself.

what is your goal weight, 5'3 and 5'4 ladies?
I've been on the heavier side(160'ish when I was in my early teens) and come from a family where ALL of the women were/are heavy and to top it off I'm not quite 5'tall with my heaviest being almost 250 lbs, right now I have my mental goal getting me to 140 but in the long run, my total final goal is to be as close to 120 as possible. I started this journey with a VSG surgery in April of 2016 at that point I was at 220, currently I'm at 165 and doing okay even with the stalls that I've had.

Pobody's Nerfect, Looking for a Diet Buddy for Low Carb- High Protein
am in my early 40's and have gone through a VSG surgery almost 2 years ago, stalled for a while and am back on track more-or-less, trying to find buddies dealing with similar issues. My biggest issue right now is trying to stick to a low carb- high protein diet.., AND get my rear in gear.😁🍀
