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!!

Welcome, dreamnofsz7!

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

[I'm not sure why the weight-tracker in your signature isn't showing up for me. ]
