I am 32 years old and live in NM! I was 258 pounds when I gave birth to my daughter and I was 30 pounds overweight when I got pregnant (I had quit those damn cigarettes) and have lost 84 pounds over the last 3 years. This has been by far THE hardest thing I have ever done and continue to do. When I met my husband I was 128 pounds. Oh sweet 120's! I am tired of 'maintaining' at the weight I am at, even though I don't mean too. I work out a lot and have a tendency to fall off the wagon come friday on eating. This has changed because I WILL reach my 100 pound weight loss mark by Xmas. I am so close I can taste it. I have a pair of jeans that are tired of hanging on the back of my bathroom door and want to be worn. I want to enjoy running again and my muscles enjoy feeling sore and fit. I want to be an athlete again.

I am participating in a spring triathlon in September 2009 as the swimmer. This will be the first event I have done in a decade and since gaining all this weight. My next goal is a 5K in October.

I faithfully drinks at least 3 liters of water a day and I really try to eat clean and healthy.

Time to sweat, drink water and sweat. Cheers to FINALLY losing my fat butt.

I did my first Tri Swim today as part of a team at this weight I am at and I am proud of myself for finishing with a swim time of 7:05!

    Glad to hear you're going for a tri! You'll get through the swim just fine. The start will be over so quick you won't have time to think about it.

    It's great to see you posting on the daily forum!

    I know. I wish I had a pool at the house, working on the Hubs on that one. That would make things so much easier!

    No...I've gone once and it kicked my butt. then work got busy, started soccer, got a tread mill...all the things that kept me from the community center pool. But will be getting back to it in the winter more I think.
    How you doing? I see you joined a C25K team, cool! :) I'm working on that goal myself!
