I am an obese, 45-year-old mom of 7. I've struggled with my weight since puberty when I thought I was fat because I had curves when the other girls didn't. I let myself spiral upwards in weight until I truly became fat then obese.

With a family of 9 life is CRAZY! I've lost myself along the way making myself have one foot in the grave and chaos in every aspect of my life.

I've chosen the name "Overhauling-Me" because that's what I'm doing. I need one huge overhaul! I know deep down there is a classic beauty who runs well in ALL aspects. It will be a Loooong project but definitely worthwhile.

Starting Weight: 3/26/11 325lbs BMI: 45.32 Morbidly Obese
25 Pounds Gone: 5/20/11 299.8lbs BMI: 41.81 Morbidly Obese

Update: January 3, 2012
So, 2011 didn't end up to well. After losing 30lbs by June 8th I fell off track. Thankfully I didn't put all my weight back on and finished the year down eight pounds. Weighed in at 317. Here's to a new year.

    Welcome to SP. WTG for taking the step to reach out to people who are succeeding on their way to fitness. ZIRCADIA is a huge motivator for me too: I hope to accomplish half of what she has already!

    Start with baby steps and changing one unhealthy routine everyday. Don't be discourage if you struggle in the beginning. We all did.

    Congrats on starting your new lifestyle!
