OK So I have been a member of this site for over a year. I figured getting married would be a great motivator to lose weight... I WAS WRONG! I am so disappointed in myself. I did not lose any weight for my wedding. I felt beautiful but deep down I wish I had done it. I want to get motivated and I want to be healthy.

My Husband bought me a treadmill for Christmas and I used it 5 days a week for 3 months, then I got busy and just did not have time. It is so hard to get back into it. I want this so bad.

*** Update ***

So on July 25th I joined Weight Watchers and started going to the meetings every week. Now I have tried WW before on my own, but what a difference going to the meetings is.

Today (10.28.11) I have lost a total of 22.8 lbs. I am so happy. I feel better and I am fitting into things in my closet I had put in the back. I still have 42.2 lbs to go. I believe I can do this now. I also started a blog - http://uphillquest.blogspot.com/

Follow me on my journey :)

Personal Information:
I love to read, getting lost in a book is an escape from life when it gets too hectic

I absolutely love owning a home. It is nice to go out and tend to a flower bed or do projects around the house.

We have a dog named Nutmeg who is 2 yrs old.

Other Information:
My biggest weakness is food.
I really wish I could get the willpower to get on that treadmill everyday and do wii fit as well
