Hello all, I am a 32 year old single mom, living in North Carolina originally from New Jersey. I am pretty successful in life, I have a great paying job, my own home and car, however I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. In my 20's I was usually only about 20 lbs or so overweight, which was fine with me because I was still very active so I was pretty solid. I decided in my late twenties to finally lose those 20 lbs, which I did (and damn I looked good!!,)but then it came back with a vengence and brought some friends, like it was upset that I got rid of it or something...crazy! Anyway, I hit 30 and I swear it's like my metabolism just came to a complete halt. Well I'm on a mission...a mission to get my body back and to break up with this fat that is apparently totally in love with me. I can no longer support this very unhealthy relationship, I have to move on! There is no making up, no relationship counseling or apologies, that's it, it's over between me and fat! Wish me luck, goodness I am going to need it.

Cheerios Is A Drug
So wait, will we have to get a prescription for Cheerios? I will admit that I am totally addicted to Honey Nut Cheerios, so maybe the FDA is on to something ;>/

Weighing in ideas?
I threw out my scale because I became obsessive about my weight instead of focusing on how I looked. I was depressing myself every other day and therefore I would fall off the wagon thinking that I wasn't getting anywhere. I have made a deal with my doc to visit each MONTH and get weighed. So not only do I not obsess about my weight each day, I look forward to the rush of my doctor telling me my "new" weight and bragging a little. I do however measure myself each week in between visits.
