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.

2009:

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.

2009:
Thinking back one of the reasons I allowed myself to get heavy was the denial I was even heavy at all.

    You look amazing! Great job! I have been having some struggles on my GB journey...started out great and then really slowed down when I realized I could tolerate eating EVERYTHING!!! Looking for a buddy to help me stay on track and you appear to be doing everything right!

    Hey TY for Asking about me... Been busy working night shift then, sleeping my days away. Try to get on line and sometimes not so easy, too much to do so little time. I try to pop on everyonce and awhile...send out goodies and special notes to new bees, just looking at purchasing a new lap top, so hopefull I'll be on more often after nest week..
    by the way you look fantastic...
