My name is Donna I am 43. I have worked for TDCJ for 11yrs now. I have fought my weight all my life. I have yo- yoed for years, but I have accepted this is a life change not a quick fix. I have been as high as 309 in 2004, I think I had got as low as 160 in my mid-twentys. I am the only one in my faimly that had a serious weight problem. I don't know how I got it, my brother is a health nut and I have never been very relaxed around him. I have a sister who is one of my best friends who allways supports me along with my parent, but since they don't really understand I find this site is a great support.

    It will go down. I went from 370 (when I was brave enough to step on the scale), to 149, I have hardly any chin skin. I will need a tummy tuck eventually, but I had 2 c sections also. Keep smiling...

    Thanks Davonna! It is hard to imagine that I weighed 189 pounds at one time! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Thank you. I was also 14 when I started my bad habit. It was a constant cycle of quitting then going back but now it's been almost a year since I quit this time and I'm determined to make it stick. Well congratulations on your weight loss! Keep up the good work. Good luck on quitting smoking too. Just remember it only takes two weeks for the nicotine to get out of your system. After that it's all mental. The best way is to do it cold turkey because the patches and gum only keep the nicotine in your system longer and it will take more than two weeks before it's out. Well I hope you have a great weekend. God Bless!
