** FRIEND REQUESTS: Unless you are someone I know in my personal life, please include a message with your request and why we would be a good team (make sure you inlcude your weight loss goals). If your weight loss goals are NOT similiar to mine, I am sorry but I won't be accepting anymore friend requests as it is just to hard to keep up with the current list that I have. I know needing to lose 10 or 15 pounds is just as important to someone as losing 100 pounds is just as important to others (I am in the over 100 pounds group), however my exercise and eating habits cannot compare with someone who is 10 pounds overweight so I need support, ideas and motivation from those in my own body group. Sorry, if this sounds harsh but there are not enough hours in the day and my friends list keeps growing to 200 plus and I really have to keep it to a controllable amount to be able to have the time to be there for my current pals. Thank you :)
ORIGINALLY started with MFP and my diet on 5/2/11 and I have 160 pounds+ to lose. I fell off the bandwagon in July of 2011 (lost about 20 pounds during those 2 months).
It is now 1/1/12 and I am getting back on this diet and am going to live a healthy lifestyle! Unfortunately, over the past 5 months I did gain back the 20 pounds that I lost, so I am restarting from scratch.
I am married with 2 sons (22 and 15), a golden retriever named Bailey, and cocker spaniel named Molly. My ticker pic is my bearded dragon named Yoshi. I was NOT overweight growing up and started to gain, and gain and gain after my kids were born (which were 7 years apart). I am 5'10" tall. I have been fortunate that I have not had any weight related health problems (ever) with the exception of bad knees. My blood pressure, sugar and all numbers are now and have always been suprisingly good. I was however diagnosed with PCOS in December of 2012 (which I think I have probably had most of my adult life but just didn't know it). This disease does make it difficult to lose weight.
I am determined to lose this weight and get my life back!
