Hello ladies!! I am new to this forum but certainly not new to 3FC.
Looooonnnnnng story short
2006 I was at my highest weight - 262 pounds (no photos exist from this time frame)
2007 I decide to start weight watchers. I started at 252 pounds. Over the course of a year or so, I lost 55-ish pounds, getting down to 195. At 27 years old, that was the first time I had seen a weight under the 200 mark since I was a sophomore in high school. Great feeling! Spent a LOT of time here on 3FC for support.
2008-now - I get a personal trainer. Start toning up. The lowest weight I saw was 188. Then life happened. Moved twice, separated and subsequently divorced my cheating husband, suddenly was thrown into single-motherhood, had to move in with my parents, met a new man.
I am now engaged!!!!!!!!! And getting married in May-June 2012.
I am at 197 pounds. I am a size 16-18. Ideally I'd love to be in a size 12 for my wedding or lose 40+ pounds - but I'm not sure how healthy of a goal that is. But I definitely need motivation to stay on track. I plan on losing weight before my wedding though.
I'm so glad to be back on 3FC. I'm now 31 years old. And ready to do this once and for all!!!
