I've always been big. Was 100 lbs in 4th grade! 178 for my wedding @ 17! 280 when I turned 40! I never had any interest in losing weight, never really wanted to be thin, however, when I had my yearly checkup from the doctor, my sugar levels were high, borderline diabetic,  and my cholesterol was dangeroulsy high. When I heard that, i made the decision to stay away from medication....sooooo, i had to lose the necesary weight to stay healthy. Started going to the gym with my 17-year old son, who for the most part, keeps me on track. I lost almost 19 in 5 months. But i have been stucked there for the last 4 months. I know I have made the right desition for me, and my family. I am so exited, and can't wait to go shopping in the regular size area and not the "plus"!!!
