Default I'm new! *waving*

Not sure if there is a sticky thread for newbies (and I'm sorry if I missed it!), but I'd just like to say hi! I've been reading the board for about an hour, and it is very inspirational. A quick background on me:

I'm 33 (34 on Tuesday), and I have 2 teenage daughters. I've been battling my weight for longer than I can remember, and I've come to the point where I am tired (literally). I am 5'2-5'3, and my highest weight was probably close to 290 lbs. I am now down to 223. I have a long way to go, but I have a determination that I have never had before. I walk about 40 minutes every night, which helps tremendously. Anyway, enough of my novel! I hope that you beautiful and friendly people welcome me with open arms!!

I have an impersonal trainer. We meet at the gym, we don't talk, he works out alone, and I go home

Welcome, dreamnofsz7!

Well done for dropping 67 pounds. That's tremendous. Stick around, and post often.

Welcome ~ you are doing well so far. This is a great place with such wonderful people ~ hope you enjoy.
One day at a time ~ never giving up!!

Nobody can force you to have a certain attitude. But life will go so much better if you will simply choose to be positive. When you wake up, choose to be happy. Choose to be grateful for the day. (Joel Osteen)
