Hi in a nut shell...I am 46 yrs young :-) and the mother of two college aged daughters. My oldest daughter graduates in December and my youngest is a Sophomore. They both attend different colleges out of state. So to see them or for them to visit me, we have to take plane rides. Unfortunately driving will take days from where i'm located. I am greatful and give thanks to God because I was a single parent and was able to accomplish everything with his help.
I have always battled being overweight. I have the fat gene I call it. I have been on many diets, and have lost some weight on them all, but never reaching my goal. The diet I accomplished the most weight loss was LA Weightloss, where I lost 30lbs. Before starting LA weightloss I was my highest weight at 230 lbs, sadly I gained back 12 lbs which now put me at 218 lbs. The LA weightloss here in Washington went bankrupt or had some kind of financial issue, I believe if they would have stayed around I would have reached my goal,(guess I needed someone to be accountable to) but now I am starting to feel uncomfortable and want to feel good about myself again and the only one to be accountable to is myself.
I just joined the perfect gym for me. They are going on their 8th biggest loser contest challenge and it has motivated me to hop back on the band wagon in getting healthy and finally reaching my goal. The challenge is for 60 days starting on October 6, 2010 and ending December 8, 2010. My 1st weigh in was a loss of 6.6 lbs and I was dissapointed, I lost so little, but have come to the realization with replies to a post I posted that the TV shows us such unrealistic results on certain programs to lose weight.
I hope to gain friends on this site and lose pounds on this journey...Must remember this is a lifestyle not a quick fix!
