Hi My name is Regina and I have been a large girl/woman all my life. I came from a family of people that just loved to eat. I think, when I was born, I was the smallest that I have ever been. After that I hit the ground running and didn't stop with weight gain and bad eating habits

Ya know how people sit and say " I wish I was small again like I was in school." I can't say that because I have always been larger than the average kid, or adult. NEVER had a small bone in my body EVER!!!

As I grew, Doctors would always tell my mother she needed to put me on a diet. The doctor would send my mother home with a diet to follow. Well, she would put me on one, but it wouldn't last long. Yes, I would lose weight but never keep it off. Just like a yo-yo, up and down. My whole life became a yo-yo of up and down dieting. I have tried ever gimmick, fad diet, shot and pill in the book to try to loose weight. It has also been suggested by doctors to have the lap band surgery, which I don't want to think about right now. Doctors talk to you and make you think that lap band is a quick fix tool. I know it is just a tool for losing weight, like eating right and exercising is a tool, but If I could lose weight before eating right and exercising. I can now without having surgery to do it.

    emoticon You have done an AMAZING job. I am 58 and have 108 pounds to lose. I was not a fat child, but begain gaining weight in my late teen years when Twiggy was all the rage. Lost 70 pounds once, but bounced right back up by adding 108. I had been concerned about my dedication to the goal of losing those 108, but, seeing what you have done, I am inspired to keep plugging away at it.
