I have been on MFP for a long time on and off. I originally lost 75lbs back in 2011 by eating right and exercising. I even did a mudd run with my husband. I'd have to say 2011 had been mostly a good year. Around Christmas time it just went down hill. We had some family members pass away, my mom got sick with cancer, my husband started a new job that required him to be gone a lot, and we lost our dogs while visiting family for Christmas (they got out the front door when we were not there, luckily we found one, but unfortunately not the other :( ) It just all kind of stayed crappy for the last few years and I put the weight back on.
Recently (2016) my husband lost his job and we had to relocate. I'm currently the only one working, and I am going to school full time for my BA. We also have a 14 yr old with a very active life style (sports, clubs etc). All in all, its been even more change and more stress.
Hoping life is finally going to pull back into an upswing. Things are still stressful and busy but I just can't keep putting off trying to lose weight. I'm currently at my all time high of 310 lbs.
My first goal is to get out of the 300's!
Why I want to get in shape
Better self-esteem, better sex, a better life, a better everything!
