My name is Cherie and "I don't want 2 be fat" anymore. I am 35 and live in Geneva, AL. I have three children boy 14, boy 12, and girl 9. I stay very busy between them and my job. O yes a job everyone has one its the latest thing. Recently our family has suffered through some hardships. Starting April 1st my husband, Larry, had a brain aneuyrism rupture. Had surgery and came out in decent shape. He got out the hospital May 13th. With the use of a cane he was doing really well. Then on June 6th our dream home that took two years to build (not all the way complete) and lived in since Oct 2007 went up in smoke. Literally went up in smoke along with all our personal belongings. Then on June 9th Larry's aneuyrism ruptured again. Some more surgery and hospital. Then July 5th had a shunt put in. Came out with flying colors and on his way to coming home when God decided he needed him and he left us on July 10 very suddenly. Cause blood clot to the lung or the aneuyrism burst again. I'm not telling you all this so you can feel sorry for me but so you can understand where this new weight loss journey is coming from. I have pretty much struggled with weight all my life. Not that I was fat as a yougster but I viewed my self as fat becasue I was bigger then my friends. Therefore, trought alot of actions on my part I became the fat person that I veiwed myself as. However, one person (besides my family that has to love me the way I am no matter what) came into my life and truley loved me for me. You guessed it that would be Larry. He always told me I was beautiful to him no matter what size. (Tears) He loved me unconditionally. As we all know the world does not share his same opinion. So I am doing this for Larry, the world and for myself so that I can be around for as long as I can for my children and so I can have the strenght and energy to keep up with my children by myself. Anyway enough of my rambling. You will find I like to ramble, I'm good at it.
