Good morning! My name is Lisa and I just joined this morning. I am 44, 5'4" and weigh 297 lbs. That is down from the 307 lbs I weighed a month and a half ago (was really sick with pneumonia) I have 4 kids and 1 super grandson. I have fought with my weight my entire adult life. I have used every possible reason to justify it; bad marriages, depression, PCOS, PTSD, anxiety, diabetes, etc. I have finally come to the realization that I may have these problems (except the bad marriages- got rid of those) but they aren't the reason I am overweight. So, I have made it my goal to figure out a way to use each of these as stepping stone to a healthy me rather than a roadblock. I look forward to meeting new friends here and learning more from everyone!
