Personal Information:
Hello, Im a 39 year old ( holy crap almost 40 ) mom of two. Both college students. Im divorced and VERY happily remarried. We live in the Los Angeles area, pretty close to the beach. But Im never there. Thats one of my goals.


Spending more time at beach since surgery. In January it was warm enough to lay out. First time in many many years I want embarassed.

Other Information:
I have felt fat most of my adult life. But looking back I really wasnt. Unforunatly every year I put on alittle more weight. ARHHH it sucks! Right now I feel like my life is on hold until I loose the weight. There are things I want to do but being heavy makes it very difficult and dangerous. What Im talking about is SCUBA diving. Being obese put me at higher risk of injury. Not to mention its frickin hard to carry all that equipment around. I wont buy a cold water wetsuit until I loose ALOT of weight. So if I want to dive locally I have to rent a suit. A mens 2XL, is kinda humilating going in and asking for such a big suit. I dont see myself as a fat person. I guess Im a skinny person in a fat body.

Thinking back one of the reasons I allowed myself to get heavy was the denial I was even heavy at all.

    I just wanted to thank you very much for your thoughts, prayers and kind words in my family's time of need. That is honestly the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with in my life. Thank you for the spark goodie also. It was very thoughtful of you.
