Talking Introduction...

....Hi all, my name is Megan. I am a 35 year old mother of a 9 year old, and significant other to a truly wonderful man. For once in my life I feel like all the stars are aligned, that is with the exception of my body. I am happy, mostly healthy (allergy and sinus issues mostly), and full of life, however my weight prevents me from actually living "full of life". Most of my life, up until I turned 30 I was thin and active, even after having my son I averaged in at 145lbs. After a failed marriage, several anti-depressants/anti-anxiety medications, and alot of partying I found myself at 232lbs, heavier than I had even been full term pregnant. I look in the mirror and see someone I don't know. Everytime I ask this girl, "Where am I, why did you eat me?!" I am also at the crossroads of weight related health issues, ones that both of my parents have dealt with, ones that I can not allow to happen to me.

So....that all brought me to where I am today. I am 4 weeks into Weight Watchers. I organized a meeting at my workplace, which makes attending the meetings super easy. I am down 7 point some odd pounds and refuse to look back. I love sharing tips and recipes I've found with my fellow WW participants here at work and hope to find as much support and togetherness on this site.

Welcome, Megan!! Congrats on your weightloss so far! Your weight history sounds a lot like mine (averaged 145 for the longest before somehow climbing up to 232 this year) and I feel the same way when I look in the mirror now. Funny thing is, I never even fully realized the extent of my weight gain as I slowly started avoiding the scale and having my picture taken. But now I'm working really hard to get the "old me" back. There are lots of great ladies here ready to cheer you on and I hope to read up on your progress! Goodluck!!
