Hi. My name is Kim. I am a 28 year old mother of three. I am having a horrible year so far and I want to turn it around for me. I lost my mother in Jan of this year and two weeks later I had to have a tumor removed from my ovary. Needless to say I am pretty warn out and depressed. But I need to begin to set my life back on track.
Let me rewind. Last May( 06) I found out I weighted almost 400 pds and my world was flipped up side down. I joined Weight Watchers and began to lose 3-5 pds and week. I joined my locate YMCA and a water aerobics class. I was proud of myself.. I then stopped Weight Watchers to try the Six Week Body Make Over program. Although I did lose 5-8 pds a week. It was really hard for me to keep up with. And when I decided to go back to Weight Watchers my mother got worse and was given 6 months to live. I figured it was more important for me to take care of her than go to the gym or count my points. Three months later she was gone and I have fallen into a deep depression. I told myself I will start back at the gym first of this year. And then I had to have emergency surgery to remove a tumor. The tumor was so large that they had to remove it like a c-section. And I am sure my weight didn't help matter either. My scar as just in the last week healed all the way and I am started to think I might feel better to get out and start to exercise. So I start today.. Thanks for all the support..

Ok.. I was always told to keep your goals with in your reach.. My main Goal is to lose 190- 200 lbs.

And I would like to add another goal.. To quit Smoking.
I promised my mother I would!!.

So much easier to breath when working out.

My Program:
I am hoping to start this SP program and set myself back on track.
I plan to go to the gym atleast 3 days a week. 5 if I can tolerate it. I hope to maybe rejoin my water aerobics class.
I will try and park further away from the STORE. So I will walk more outside of the gym,
I am planning to keep a journal to help me focus on my feelings and stress level to help me not eat. I tend to be an emotional eater.
