"You can pick up a WW magazine at the grocery store and there are meal plans inside (or at least there used to be) that can help you get started! I like to base my meals on one protein (the size of my palm) and one cup of a carb- whole grain bread (1…"

"I have two kids of my own, but if I had the money I would love to adopt. It is an awesome thing to give a home and a family and love to a child."

Profile Information

About Me:
Hello! My name is Ann. I am a mother & a wife. I have had enough. I have decided that my life needs a huge change. Starting with food. Losing weight is hard enough but I was dx is Feb 2008 with Hypothyroidism and about 7yrs ago with PCOS. I am hoping to learn from others & their experiences. And hopefully gain some friends. But to go through it yourself is even harder. My husband stands beside me but there some things you just can not say them. Thats why I need you all....

A little more about me....
I graduated high school back in 1998. I thought I was so 148lbs. Yeah right!! After high school I was very unsure of what I wanted to do & cared more about a boyfirend who cared not one bit about me. So then came my first bad habit... I basically became anorexi c. I swear I would only eat 1 ....6pk of pb crackers & a gatorade for lunch ..then dinner a Gutted bagel ( took all the doughy bread out of the middle of the bagel )w/ 1 pc. fat free cheese & 1 slice turkey. For 5 years I did not have a goodie (cake, ice cream, chocolate) or a pop or fast food. I dropped down to a sze 3-4. 115lbs.

Then all hell broke lose my now husband (my soul mate) & I thought we were pregnant & when I went to confirm with the doctor I was informed I had PCOS. Then my new bad habit came about emotional eating...... I felt like I had let down everyone...especially myself! For 5 years we tried to get pregnant..basic (cheap) infertility treatments, study at university, and just the good old fashioned way till we were blue in the face ( No complaints there...Hee hee) with no sucess. Then we decided that adoption was the option. (we over looked it originally due to cost)
We took out a loan and a year later found ourselves in Vietnam..... Meeting our son Jacob & waiting to being him home..... He is my future. And I have to make changes for him. I want to grow old & see my grandchildren & be a kick butt mom....

anyway thats a little about me!
Plan of Choice:
Weight Watchers, Other

Why is that everyone hates that you gained weight, but their the first to offer you junk...candy~

The other night I grabbed a hand full of my sons MM's out of habit as I chewed I went OH CRAP! What am I doing?

So quickly I grabbed a baby wipe & spit it out.

I am the type that once I get sugar in me I can not stop eating it~

I felt bad to almost fall back into bad habits. Then my mother in law got on me about using Ranch dressing at the restraunt. Mean while she is… Continue

Day 1

Today I again BEGIN my fight. I need to lose weight. I have to lose weight. LAst night I had a brief talk with my husband. I told him that I know I am so not the person he married. And I do not mean just weight wise. I use to be so free. I would just kind of go with the flow. Meet who ever, do what ever ( well not anything) and never really cared. I loved life. Now if he wants to introduce me to a friend or something I feel like their going to think something bad....

I'm fat or something… Continue

Well I joined face book per suggestion of long distance friend so we could talk back n fourth. And now I have actually reconnected with several friends and acquaintances from school. Its weird because these are people you assumed you would never see or hear from again. And now to know where their at, what their doing, and how their doing is great. Some have kids, some married, some are still the same and some have changed 100%. I know I have changed alot since school. I was very lost when I was… Continue

I think I'm finally ready to accept the challenge of weight loss. I am very hopeful and motivated. This site is helping to keep me motivated by reading others success stories. We are the same age and 30 is just around the corner. I want my 30th birthday to be the healthiest I've had in 20 years. You can do it!
