100 lb. Club - New girl on the block!

Hi Everyone. I hope you all don't mind me just jumping right on in here. My name is Traci and I'm 36 years old. I'm a mom to 4 girls and I have a little girl grandbaby as well. I'm in some dire need of motivational support and I thought this would be the perfect to seek that out. I have no idea what my highest weight ever even was.. I didn't dare step on a scale.. until one day at my mothers... (after I had been dieting for a while) I weighed in at 278. I just wanted to cry. Now that was 1 pregnancy and 2 years ago.. even though I have lost a little weight, I still have a bunch to go...and now with my wedding coming up in August.. there's no better time then the present.. right? Enough hee hawing around with this.. it's just time for me to do it already! I'm currently weighing in at 234. My goal is 150 so that leaves me with 84 pounds left to work off.
So here I am! I look forward to getting to know you all and to the celebrations of each and every one of us reaching our goals!

I was once 255, not very long ago. You can do it. In my opinion 90% of this weight removal thing is in my head. I wish you much success. I personally know I will never go back to the obese person I once was. I hope you find your own way to reach those goals you have in place. Where in Wisconsin are you from? Central?

The first step's the hardest! WTG for already getting down to where you are now. I'm sure those 84 pounds will soon become history. Welcome!
