My name is Melissa from Youngstown, OH. My husband and I have been married 8 yrs. My ultimate weight loss goal is lose a total of 150 lbs by our 10 yr anniversary (which would leave me weighing around 150lbs) We want to go to Sea World's Discovery Cove for our 10th anniversary. So I want to be able to wear a wetsuit to swim with the dolphins.(and maybe a bikini and look good in it =)

Also, I am going to a nutritionist to help me learn how to eat healthy. I have Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS for short) which at this time means I am not able to have children. My nutritionist specializes in cases like mine and he firmly believes that if I can get my sugar under control and lose the weight I may be 80% more likely to have children. It is not a guarantee that I will have children.

I am focusing on being healthy and getting fit. If God blesses me with a child in the process it is just an added bonus. a special gift from God =)
