Looking to lose 100 lbs

I'm married to my soul mate and am the mother of 4 beautiful children who I live my entire life for. My ultimate goal is to lose 100 lbs and if I reach that goal, I'm hoping to take my dream vacation to Hawaii. I'm hoping that this site helps me to reach my goals and dreams...

When I was young I never had a problem with my weight because I played any and all sports that I could. Up until my senior year of high school when, while playing soccer, I shredded my ACL and have had three knee surgeries since then. I went off to college...gained weight...got married...gained weight...had one baby...gained weight...had baby #2...gained weight...baby #3...gained weight...baby #4 (and final)...gained weight. I am hoping, now that we are happy with the family that we have, it is time for me to be happy with who I am!!

It seems like I have dieted for the last 15 years, on and off, I would hate to see how much I would weigh if I hadn't. Now it's time to change the way I live and start eating and living healthy and happy all of the time!! Diet fads have never worked long term for me, so I am trying to change how I live little by little...I started by drinking atleast 8 glasses of water a day (and pretty well gave up soda), charting what I eat and paying attention to when I am full (and not when my plate was clean, as I was brought up to do), and still eating what I like, just in moderation.

I'm very happy with the progress that I have made so far...and the friends and support that I have on this site have been a real key to it all!! Together we will get there!!

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Baler twine would be useful. I still haven't ditched those pants -- after all I washed them so now I have to wear them.

Love to see you checking in on the ASK Team and I'm glad things are moving along. The kids must be done with school for the summer soon. Does that make things easier or do they have lots of activities to get to? Best wishes for your DH and his surgery.

Joy, you are so much on my mind today. I was watching the show "pitching in" which is a cooking channel show where a chef goes to an area and tries to learn everything she can about the local ingredients. She was at a farm where they raised goats and made cheese and the show was so entertaining and for someone like me a real education too. I am so uninformed that the only goat cheese I had ever had any knowledge of was the basic chevre but they made brie and cheddar as well as a very creamy chevre and this chef made some ice cream out of goat's milk, cheddar and chevre....how exotic! and the guy at the ice cream shop was so amazed and impressed with the flavor he said he was going to "borrow" the recipe.

Well, as you can see, I'm still all wound up about the show and wish we lived close so I could come and see your operation as you get all set up. I just know it will be a success if you can just get past the intial problems and other farm challenges.
