Hi Irene. Welcome to the team. I love good food too and I know it can be a pain to have to limit your portions, but I'm getting used to it too. Good luck in meeting your goals.

hi, my name is irene and i am 43 years old. i am in a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship. i live in miami, florida almost all my life. i happen to be 6'0 ft tall. so i dont look as heavy as i am but i am. when i started my change of life process i weight in 267 lbs. this was about 5 weeks ago. i saw myself in a picture in a dress and i felt like i was wearing a curtain than a dress. since then i have lost 15 lbs. my ultimately goal is to reach 199 lbs which i have not been in over 10 years. after i reach this goal, i will loose 20 more pounds. i really dont care how long it takes me to loose it, i just want to. it took me about 20 years to gain it so i know it will not come out over night.
plus the fact that my boyfriend is skinny and loves to eat does not help me. plus he does not mind that i am full figured. but is supporting me.
i started doing exercise about 4 weeks ago and it has been very hard. all i do is walk. and it really gets to be no fun by myself. i walk near work for the convience which is in the doral area.
i have two crazy dogs who keep me happy. i am beginning to take them to the doggie park near my home in perrine and do laps around with them.
i love to cook and go out and try different types of foods but i have been able to eat more healthier foods by going to shop at whole foods instead of publix and stay away from the sweets which is my biggest problem. since a child i have been used to eating dessert every thing i ate food. i have cut down on that. i also cut down on my wine intake. and i dont really drink that much when i go out with friends.
