    Hi, I'm Cheryl & live in Lake Worth (West Palm Beach area) :smile:

    I'd like to be 150 (285 finally) but my sister says 200 is more realistic because of my age (late 50s) and exercise level (low). Current goal is 250.

    Orlando Here,

    Hey All,

    My Name is Sashoi, and about me 5 years ago I was 354 lbs and I changed my life by dieting and exercising and lost 169 lbs. I was about 185 lbs when I got diagnosed with leukemia and everything went down hill after that. I did lose another 20 lbs while I was in a coma after my first round of chemo treatments, but because I hated how skinny and sick I looked I just started eating. With all the steroids and drugs they had me on I gained pretty much everything back. needless to say I was miserable because everyone kept tell me don't worry about your weight just worry about beating your cancer. Well after 9 months of chemo I was in the clear until December 2012 when it came back. I just finished another 6 moths of chemo and was disgusted to see I was getting close to my old starting weight. II woke up on July 1, 2013 and just knew I wanted a change. I got a long way to go because this time I want to lose the weight the right way. The first time I lost all that weight by not eating, doing the 3 day diet and working out twice a day, sometimes for 3 hours a day. I would definitely not recommend anyone to lose weight that way. So Thats me in a nutshell I have set a Goal date for August 9, 2014 my 35th Birthday. So I wish you all much success and Hopefully I will meet some new weight loss pals along the way.

    I used to live in Jacksonville, but now I live in Keystone Heights (: It's a tiny town near Gainesville that only has two stoplights. Pretty boring, but has a small-town charm to it. I see that a lot of people are from Gainesville, which is where I plan to move in a year or two. After I get my AA I want to transfer from Santa Fe to UF! Woo!

    Well, currently, I still live in Missouri, my home state, but I'm moving to Florida (around Orlando or Tampa) in January after I finish school to pursue my first teaching job. I just thought it would be nice to get to know some people before I move and maybe get some tips on places to live, etc.
