Me and my fiance at the computer, 10/05/10.
Getting a kiss from my honey!
My wedding dress!!!
Engaged for the first time at age 41, this is by no means my first attempt at losing weight!
I was very petite as a child until 3rd grade when I developed a weight problem seemingly overnight. Not obese, just chubby, plump. I lost weight successfully for the 1st time as a high school freshman with Weight Watchers. My total loss of 30 lbs. brought me down to 105 lbs. But when I look at pictures taken after that weight loss, I look too thin at that weight, even though the charts all say that at 5 feet tall, I should weigh that or even less! I'll never get to that weight again either way!
I wasn't really obese until my college years and I've struggled ever since. One bright spot, weight-wise, was back in 2006. In January of that year, I tipped the scales at 298 lbs. medically dangerous for my height. I was already on high blood pressure meds, and my doctor was concerned about cholesterol. Not to mention I was having unexplained stomach pains. There was talk of weight loss surgery, a place I didn't want to go. On the directive of my doctor, I got a copy of "The South Beach Diet" and began doing the program. Ten months later I was 86 lbs. lighter! And the poster child at my doctor's office!
As an obese adult, I didn't really date. I never had a serious relationship. Didn't feel worthy of one. Then, in August 2007, I met my fiance at a casino in Northern California. With my weight loss success, I had the confidence to approach a handsome stranger playing at the same blackjack table!
Our wedding will be in Bodega Bay on July 3, 2011. Now I want to continue what I started. There is more weight to lose to get where I want to be! Even though my fiance has made it very clear that I look beautiful to him no matter what I weigh, he is very supportive of my weight loss efforts for my health.
Am I a lucky girl or what?

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful. If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out."
