My name is Amanda Edwards Busby and I reside in Missouri.I am 29 and currently am 199lbs and am determined to get to get to a healthier weight. This is the heaviest that I have ever been and need to get to a healthier weight for me and my family. I have 3 boys that need me to be there for them and at the rate that i am going is not good. I have been having lots of issues lately with my health and pains in my chest and knees and trouble breathing.

I am scared that if I don't do something now it will eventually take me over and I refuse for that to happen. I am a fighter and I am gonna win this time.

I would love any suggestions that anyone can give me and the motivation to achieve my goal weight. Any pointers would be glady appreciated.

Thanks for all the info. I have sent you a buddy request and look forward to having someone help me out. I have a real problem with my caffine, If I don't have it I get severe migranes. I did good for a whole 2 months with my addiction to caffine and then one day the soda just took back over because I lost the will power and my husband was no help either. I am determined this time because we are tring to have another baby and the dr says that dropping a few pounds will help. As you see I have a will and desire this time!!!Very Happy
