I've decided to finally lose these pounds that I've been wanting to lose for so long. At 36 years old, I've been heavy all of my life. I've had short time periods where I was slim and felt great, but then something would happen, and the weight would creep back up. I've tried lots of diets/programs (WW, Jenny Craig, South Beach) with some success, but not enough to sustain for a long period of time. My goal is to lose 140 pounds, and I'm hoping to lose a large percentage of that by August 2008, in time for my friend's wedding in Connecticut. I feel like my mind is made up enough for me to overcome habits that I've built over a lifetime.
