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.

    Hi there and thank you for adding me as a friend - I am honored! Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you - I have the exercise thing down cold, but the eating part is still a struggle....ZIRCADIA is awesome - glad you found her! If she can't motivate a person to lose weight then NOTHING can, right?!

    Take care of you and you will find that you can take care of your family better!

    You are better than you think you are, and you can do more than you think you can! I believe it - do you?
