i am a married 30 year old woman with an almost 3 year old daughter.I have been married to my highschool sweerheart for 5 years. We dated 9 years when we finally tiedthe knot. i gained 85 pds with my pregnancy, had a traumatic postpartum and was put on zoloft for postpartum anxiety/ocd and postraumatic stress. now i am just left with anxiety and i am on 50mg of zoloft and weaning lower. but i am left also with weight from pregnancy and zoloft so trying to loose that for a better healthy me.

I do believe that on day i will be at my goal weight and than i will be off medication. I need to be patient, hve willpower, and determination that this is pssible and that i will succeed at all my goals.

as you will se my wedding picture when i was 120 pds. i am now 214 pds.and hoping to loose 54 pds. But i was a whopping 228 back in May.

Week 1: Was hard to get use to certain foods
Week 2:Got bad heartburn and indigestion got scared and that was like a pusher to weightloss
Week 3:Still battle sick stomach
Week 4:Feel much better with stomach but want to continue on the weightloss. I CAN DO THIS!!!!!
Week 5:weigh in time and just taking it day by day.
