    Hello everyone! My name is Bren. I am a 41 yr old stay at home mom to my 7 year old daughter, who I also home school. I have been married for 23 years this year to my amazing husband and we also have 2 grown children ages 20 and 25. I have been overweight my entire adult life. It started when I had my first child. I gained almost 80lb during the pregnancy (almost 10lb of that was my child..lol) I had a very hard time losing the weight. I have been on a roller coaster with weight loss and gain all of this time. I am over it. 2 years ago I was doing so well. I was walking 5 miles per day and eating healthy. I was losing weight and feeling great about myself. I had lost close to 60 lb and I was so close to my goal weight. Then we moved to a new town. I got off track, I got busy with life. I have been a foster parent for 5 years, and we had a few little ones come to us during that time. I put myself on the back burner..Again. I gained the weight back and then some. The beginning of January I stepped on the scale for the first time in a long time. I saw a number I had never seen before. That was my moment. I knew that this time would be different. This time I am putting myself first. I am going to lose the weight and and not look back. I have realized that is is definitely all about lifestyle change. So, I began to change the way I eat and I started exercising again. Then at the end of January I had a car accident. Someone thought it was a good idea to text and drive and I was hit from behind on the freeway. So I couldn't do much for about 6 weeks. I am still not back to "normal" so to speak, but I am pushing through. I started back on track February 19. I have lost 12 lb so far. I am trying to do low carb. I am a carb addict!!! It's bad. French fries are my trigger food. I could eat them all day every day for the rest of my days..lol BUT, I am proud to say that I haven't had one since the beginning of February. Anyway..I am glad to be here and look forward to the support. I have 88 more lbs to go..but I am making small goals so that I don't get discouraged.

    @bbmich23, Welcome, Bren!! That is quite a life story. What I take from it the most is your never quit attitude!! Nothing is going to stop you this time from reaching your goal, not a car accident....nothing!!! And breaking down your weight loss into smaller goals is a sound strategy!! Looking forward to witnessing your success story first hand!!

    @nordiera, in the registration thread you requested your weigh-in day to be Monday. That is what we have you down as in the spreadsheet. Does that still work for you, or do you want to change it to Fridays?
