Hi all! New here and wanted to introduce myself.
I'm Merie. Just turned 30 the week before Christmas. I've been married for 6 1/2 year, no kids, 2 cats. I live in sunny Florida and work too many hours as a financial analyst.
I've always had issues with my weight. In college, I got down to about 150, but in unhealthy ways. Met my hubby, and for a variety of different reasons, some health related, some not, put on 50-60 lbs in our first two years of marriage....and have been here ever since. In the last 3-4 years, I've been between 220 and 190, and am sitting somewhere in there right now.
My weight is always in the front of my mind, I've just been missing the motivation to actually *do it*. But am constantly feeling guilty about not doing what I need to do. I wanted to lose the weight before I turned 30, but never did anything serious to get there. So now I'm going to do it while I am 30!
Yesterday, I joined a local gym with a friend, and signed up for a 1-hr personal training session (Tuesday night), and have credit toward 3 more personal training sessions that I'm planning on using. I'm leaving in a half hour to pick my friend up and hit the new gym for the first time.
Just wanted to say high and introduce myself!
