Starting weight/current/goal - 247.1/246.3/180 or lower?
Highest weight ever 279.4
Location: Paducah, KY
Marital Status: Married for almost 13 years to a Soldier in the Army
Kids: Girl 17, boy 12, boy 5
Pets: two chihuahuas : James and Timone
Work: I am a SAHM
Plan: South Beach. I had some success on WW (lost 41lbs.) but when they changed their plan to Points Plus, it did not work for me any longer. I fell off the wagon during a recent military move and gained back 26 of the 41 lbs. I lost. I have out of control cravings and I am insulin resistant. I knew SB worked, so I decided that I wanted to live my life being 'in control' instead of being a slave to my cravings.
Favorite diet cheat: Chocolate or fast food!
Hobbies: reading, gardening
Reasons for wanting to lose weight:I want to stop taking my HBP medication, I want to be active and be able to keep up with my husband and my kids. I want to fit into rollercoaster seats and airplane seats, as well as movie seats without my hips touching the sides. I want to look better and feel better. I am not trying to be "skinny"...I am not made that way, but my goal is to be in a size 14 with a dream size of 12.
