I am a 27-year-old woman who has some major weight to lose! Pretty much from 2nd grade on I have struggled with my weight, but now it is absolutely beyond what I ever thought it would become.
In the past 3 years I have gone through a lot of changes. I got my Master's degree, got divorced, my father passed away from cancer, made a career move, bought a house, and almost lost my mother to an emergency bowel-obstruction surgery. Needless to say, I seemed fine on the outside, but it was because I was eating and keeping myself busy in the wrong ways!
Finally I have made a promise to myself that I will change the way I live my life. I kick-started my weight-loss adventure by doing the Master Cleanse to get myself clean and clear and ready for my new life. Now I am trying to stay focused on eating healthy foods, organic when possible, and getting at least 3 days of exercise. My goal is to lose 100 pounds, which will still leave me "overweight," but at least much healthier, happier, and smaller!
I decided to join this site because I liked the layout and the fact it was free. I decided I needed some type of support system and a place to log my daily food intake.
