Hello chicks, Im Lyric. I hope I can fit in here because I dont fit in , in most places in "proper" society lol. Im 35 yrs young, divorced with 2 kids (18 & 9 yrs old). I grew up being able to eat whatever the he** I wanted but once I hit my 30"s, it hit me like a ton of bricks. In 2008, I was 145lbs. Now, I am 193lbs! I want to lose 50 or more lbs. Lowest weight at my height (5'7"), that i'd like to be, is 135lbs but my goal right now is 140lbs.
I have tried just about everything but never a web based site that offers support. I hope I can get to know all of you and offer and receive support to get this thing goin'!
I have established my "rewards" for myself along the way. I currently have 4 tattoos and 5 rewards, when money allows lol, will be more tatts! And of course new clothes ;) :carrot:
I hope to hear from all of yall soon!!!

Thanks so much for the welcome! I might try the challenge thanks. Btw, how do I get a cool ticker for my posts? lol

I believe you have to be a member for a certain number of days (60 maybe?) before you can get a signature/ticker.

My end goal when i hit 160 will be to get a new tattoo down my side since it wont look like the rolling hills of Ireland anymore. LOL I wish you all the luck and you and I will be at the same starting point!

My story is so similar to yours....been divorced now remarried...have the tatts no piercings though. My 30's also brought on the weight like a punch in the face...uhhh on top of that we just had 2 kids back to back.

So I'llbe keeping my eye on your success encouraged and motivated. You can get that crap off of you I know I plan to!!! lol

once I hit my 30"s, it hit me like a ton of bricks.

Yep, that's me too. We're all in the same boat I guess :devil:
