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!!!

In the 30 something's group there is a bathing suit challenge, I can't post the link but you should look it up.

Setting goals for June 2012. I also want to lose in time for a may wedding but it's not mine, it is helping me to stay motivated though!

Your story sounds very similar to my own. Glad to meet you! I'm new to the forums, but I had a journal back in the day. I lost weight then and know I can again!!
