In spite of all the recent traumas I've faced, nothing has distressed me more consistently on a daily basis than my weight. When I was thinner, life was not perfect - but I didn't cringe from my own appearance. Now I do. Every day it's a downer and I want it to stop. It's not good for me and it's terrible as a model for my own daughter. My children are not heavy, but husband and I are.
I'm a married mom of three kids, two dogs, one guinea pig and a parrot. I lost a bunch of weight with a band - but have gained back weight after a horrific year of challenges. Want to use the band again to lose weight - but haven't done what I need to do on any front in terms of diet, exercise, balance, etc. This year is all about getting healthy for me, my hubby and kids. I feel much better to face this challenge because I've been just treated for severe anemia.
Personal side - digital media specialist, with large clients in health care. right now, head of an internal communications division for major insurer. just for fun, I run an online tshirt shop.
I've tried doing this by myself, but i think i'm a social creature and would be helped by a group - especially a group who has as much to lose as I do.
