I'm so happy I found this site today. 5 weeks ago I decided I am sick and tired of being unhealthy and finally feel motivated to do something about it. Over the past twenty years I have been significanly heavier every time I stepped on a scale. Food is something I turn to when I'm bored, lonely, sad, happy...I love to eat. My children don't have the mom I really want to be because I am so out of shape. I desperately want to take bike rides, play soccer with my daughter, and run around with my boys. I've always encouraged activity and healthy eating with my children, but I have never modeled it. 34 days ago I started at 284.6 pounds. Today I am 265.8. With eating less, eating healthy foods, and exercise I know I will make it to my goal weight of 160lbs.
