I'm Heather, Mommy to Addison.

I have always been overweight my whole life, but the summer of my Senior year in high school I was bound and determined to loose weight so I did it the unhealthy way...I just quit eating. Now, I would eat a little like maybe one healthy choice meal a day....and drink tea....but that was it.

My body started having issue with that of course.

I got my eating under control when I met my hubby and gained a few pounds. My smallest was 145 even with the bad eating habits. I would really like to be around 180 again. Honestly, it's achieveable I'm sure. I'm 253 right now. I'm setting a goal for myself of getting at least to 217 where I was before I had my daughter almost 2 years ago.

I recently tried WW and failed at it of course when I didn't succeed loosing weight like I'd hoped. I felt good though.

My daughter had colic, then ear infections, and now just being a cranky clingy toddler keeps me from exercising.

CAN YOU GUYS HELP ME! I did go to the doctor for my cold and my blood pressure was elevated. I'm only 30 and I really don't need to start having health problems.

I want to look sexy for my husband again instead of a fat blob.

Thanks Jessica (dettmer26) for my wonderful siggy!

welcome! You are definitely a step forward already with your decision to do this in a healthy way. A lot of your story reminds me of myself! I did the same thing in 7th grade and yeah, I saw results but it was unhealthy and I got sick and as soon as I started eating again it came back like THAT. I was 247 the day I delivered my almost 15 month old and today I am 176. It is very achievable for you!!!! You can do it and these ladies are AWESOME motivators!

Hi there! welcome to our board, we are more than happy to have you here. We all need to be a team and be supportive to one another. I don't want you to think that if you aren't losing weight that you're not welcome. If you need extra TLC we want to try to do what we can.
