I've been overweight my whole adult life and only recently realized that I really was not overweight as a teenager. That sounds weird, I'm sure. But, I looked at pictures of myself from when I was a teen and realized that this whole time I've had a messed up mental imgage of what I really look like. So, with this knowledge in hand... I'm trudging forward. I'm an emotional eater. But, awareness is the key.

I'm a 30-something girl looking to finally find her enter and outer self. I work, go to college, and am trying to start a business with my boyfriend. I'm a big fan of music, art, and travel. I also love to make new friends!

I joined this website to help me monitor my calories and WW points, so I can work on losing weight. But, I have some underlying health issues I hope to avoid or make better by weight loss. Diabetes runs rampit in my family, and I don't want it. I got a wake up call a few months ago when my Dad and Sister were both diagnosed within a week of each other. This made me more aware of the sugar I eat, from there I decided enough was enough and started working on getting my mental self ready for this challenge. I will succed. :)

Life is all about change. Why not make some good little changes to make the big picture great?
