performance: losing 2.2 lb a week

I am a wife, mother of one, and oldest sister of five. I am from the South and, of course, we love to So here I am.

I've been overweight since adolescence. Now at 26 and really for the first time in my life, I am fearful of my health. I started this diet to combat some of those feelings and so far it's okay. I am hoping that the support and structure of this site will give me the confidence and willpower that I need to get down to a new, healthier me. :)

Looking forward to this long journey.

More Progress pics ALMOST 100 Pounds
k8yk, those are fabulous pics!!! You were beautiful to start with but now you just look down right sexy. You go girl! Smile Thanks for being an inspiration to me. It's been almost a year since I started my weight loss and sometimes I feel like I'm never going to get there but I have to remind myself that if I want to change my life it must happen over time. This is the only honest way to do things. Thank you for reminding me to give myself a break. And for reminding me to stay focused in order to finish this. You are amazing.

Why do you want to lose weight?
Cute! I love this...

1) Live to see my son raise my grandchildren.
2) Have my next child at a healthy weight. (I always hear this response - "umm, wth, you want to lose weight to gain it all back"'s not the same, people!!!)
3) To be smokin' hot for my husband. Wink

Anyone need to lose over 100LBS???
I'm so glad I came across this forum. Sometimes it can be depressing and I was nervous for the first two months I was up here to even make my weight public. About two weeks ago, I ditched that philosophy and decided that the people here weren't judgmental and it was something I didn't have to worry about because a lot of us are in the same boat. Btw, I had 130 to lose when I first started (my goal is to get to a healthier BMI). Now I'm down to about 105 to lose. Not on South Beach but just wanted to say how inspiring all of you are. Smile

Please shoot me a buddy request if you want. I only have 2 buddies up here so far - one is my husband and he doesn't even sign
