Wink For the first time ever, I'm serious.

Hi everyone! I just wanted to give a brief intro...I'm so glad I found this site. (and many thanks to my mom for telling me about it). Basically it's like this...I finally have decided to be serious about getting healthy. Maybe it's the fact that I've gained 10 lbs since getting married in June, or the fact that I'm the heaviest I've ever been, or maybe just that I feel like a giant achey lethargic slug...but whichever reason it is, I've finally decided to do this. As with any addict, you have to get to that point where you are ready to change...and I'm there. I visited a naturopath yesterday...and I will be doing a cleansing diet for 60 days...after 60 days we will re-evaluate and go from there. I'm not comfortable enough yet to post my weight...maybe after a couple of weeks and having lost a few pounds I will be able to do so.

So - kudos to everyone who is here and trying to get healthy! I wouldn't be able to attempt this without the support of my wonderful hubby and friends. I look forward to sharing in everyone else's journey!

I just joined today as well. I have been up and down for years. I hit that "magic number" a few weeks ago. You know the one. That number we all have that says "I will never be there" and then we are, and we make a new number? yeah. well I decided the day after Labor Day that I was not going to make a new number. One of my mini goals is to get to the weight that is on my Drivers License. That will put me about half way where I need to be.
Good luck!
