My name is Natalie and I finally am getting myself motivated to do something about how I look. I have struggled with my weight ever since I was able to remember. My parents got divorced when I was one and to this day everyone tells me how much I look like my father. "You look just like your dad, you could be twins!" I love my father, but he too has been overweight ever since I could remember. I figured if I can't beat him, join him! I have been under his shadow for many years and just had to tell myself this is just how it's going to have to be. It was not until recently that I decided to change. I had my first baby this past August and gained an additional 50 pounds. I lost 30 but I am still over 200. I tend to buy bigger clothes to accomodate my bigger size. It's time to change how I feel and it starts with the inside out. I hope to loose 65 pounds by next November. It's time to be happy with myself again. For a long time I didn't think I deserved to be happy or pretty or confident. Weight is a struggle for me and am ready to get this ball rolling!
