Welcome to my page! Glad you stopped by!!

Hello and welcome to my page!!I'm Linda (Lyn), and I'm 48 years old. My weight gain started over 20 years ago. I was 19, looked in the mirror and thought I was fat. I weight all of 132 pounds. In 3 months I got down to 125. I loved it!! But, I didn't eat breakfast, only ate a tuna sandwich with a granola bar for lunch, and ate only veggies for supper. No meat. And very small helpings of veggies. Then I would go to an all female gym, workout for 4 hours (6 - 10pm) every night.

Then I met my husband to be. The workouts got few and far between, and the eating and drinking started.
When I got engaged I was 22. I was 40 pounds heavier.
We tried right away for a family. Seven months later I was pregnant with my first son. I gained 46 pounds. I was 200 pounds. I was mortified but happy! (Can that be!!) I didn't lose the weight, 2 years later was pregnant with my 2nd son, only gained 18 pounds with him.
Now, 24 years later in marriage, I have gained a total of of 112 pounds.
I want to lost to feel better. I will do it!!!
Good luck to you on your journey!!
