Default I'm back and more serious than ever

I don't recognize a lot of names but that's ok, I love to meet new people!

So...Hello to everyone. Very quickly, 3 years ago I reached my goal-- lost 86 pounds. Got Pregnant, had a child, gained all +25 more. I am finally ready to do this again. I've been busting my rump all week and so far 5 days in... 7.5 lbs gone. Official weigh in on Sunday. I am all or nothing. My eats are fantastic, I'm up to 3 miles walking per day and have been downing 3 liters of H2O. By this time next year, I will be at goal!

I look foward to know all of you, and cannot wait to do this with you!

Kinda funny how us "oldies" seem to ebb and flow all together, huh?

Love to you, Gretchen
