Hi, I'm a Carbaddict....

Hi....yes, I'm a participant in this little journey. My goal is also to lose as much as possible by September 1.
I've actually gotten a wee bit of a jump on some others since I spent this past week (my first week) doing battle. However, as well as I thought I was doing, I only managed to lose one pound. I know...one pound lost is better than one gained, but still I wish it had been more. If for no other reason than to give me the moral boost I need. Guess that will have to come from elsewhere. I also guess this means that I'll have to begin the dreaded "E". Exercise is NOT my favorite thing to do. By the way...my current weight is 174.8 and my BMI (Body Mass Index) is 30 - labeling me OBESE! I do NOT like that word. And I don't like BEING obese even more...so I'm breaking out the tennis shoes tonight and beginning my walking regime. A woman's gotta do what a woman's gotta do.

Come In, Sit Down, Enjoy

Hi there! I'm one of the players in this little quest for freedom of the bulge! That's right there are more of me. And we're all related. We've changed our names to protect the innocent and quite frankly ourselves! Who wants the world to know how much they weigh (unless they weigh 100lbs)? I certainly don't but I am ready, willing and able to put it out there for the world to see and...as long as you don't see me.....it's golden!
So there will be pictures posted (of hopefully success and progress) on my part. I can't speak for the others....but I hope they will. Just don't shoot your face! That's what I say! Or put a bag over it! :) LOL

Here's a little bit about me. I'm a mom. Of 2 1/2 year old twins. What does being the mother of twins have to do with my story? Well I'm 37 years old, 5'3" and when I gave birth I weighed a whopping 220lbs. That's what it has to do with my story! You can only imagine how huge I was...and what that did to my stomach! A month after I had them I was back down to my pre~pregnancy weight of FAT (still fat, but what I wouldn't give to be that weight) .....flash forward to today and I'm an even 20-25 lbs heaver! That's right.....I weigh about (yeah, no one really needs to know....). God it looks real when you put it down in black and white. Painfully real! But it's the truth and I'm here to start my little weight loss journey (WLJ) back down to where I was when I met my husband. My goal....135-140lbs! My timeline, eek.....September 1st. I know that's a lofty goal. I guess I should rethink this....my goal isn't to weigh 135 by September 1st... my goal is to lose as much as possible by that date. That's better!
So I invite you to follow our journeys as we embark on what I hope will be a life changing, get me back into a bathing suit, enjoy shopping again, want to take pictures of me again, get healthy journey!
