Default Hello!

Hi, my name is Deanna and I am 22 years old and live in Orlando, Florida. I am married to my wonderful husband (we've been together for 8 wonderful years) and we have 2 dogs and 1 cat. He's my rock. He fully supports me, listens to me when I need some ears and is always so encouraging.

I'm so happy I've found this forum! I hope I can join you guys here! I am 5'9" and I currently weigh 272 pounds as of this morning and I want to get down to 140. That is my goal. One step at a time! I belong to a Gym called "Ladies Workout Express" and it's great!

Hope to talk with you all some more!

Hi! Thanks! I'm really excited to meet new people and I am so glad that I can have a place to vent/talk with and have support from women, just like me, kwim?

I've been so ashamed of myself for the way I've let myself go but last night, was a deal breaker for me. A good friend of mine (I watch her son during the week) told me "I lost 15 pounds!" and I was so happy for her..but in the inside, *I* wanted to be the one to say something back at her of what *I've* done..but I couldn't. I feel so crappy for the way I've let myself go and not care. I stay fairly active while watching kiddo's during the week so I think that's how I don't gain more then I am..I've been at the weight I'm at for 2 years now. It's crazy. So now that a friend of mine is loosing weight, it works as a competition for me as well.

Hi Deanna, welcome aboard! Don't worry about your friend's comment, you'll soon be the one saying "I've lost 15 pounds". We can't wait to share that success with you. Post often so we can get to know you better. This is truly a wonderful place!

Welcome Deanna. I know how you feel about your friend but try not to compare your weight loss with others, it has a way of leading to a bad outlook on things. It's best to compete with yourself. Set goals and go for those goals and then treat yourself with a new book, cothes etc... when you make that goal.
