Hi everyone!!! I am new to this website, but I have already found some wonderful information and tools to use to help me on my path. I have also already meet some really nice people, people that I believe will be able to help me along. A little about me, I am 31 years old. I am from a small town in North Carolina, called Lucama. I have pretty much lived in this area my whole life. I was born in Virginia, but have been here since I was 5. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for about a year and a half. We were high school sweethearts, but we lost each other for a few years and found our way back. We have one child, a 10 year old son, Austin. He is my pride and joy. I never knew you could love someone as much as I love him. I have all my friends and family nearby and I love it. I am very much a family oriented person.

Back to my husband, he is the most wonderful man in the world. We had a scare about 2 years ago. In April 06, he was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer. I will not lie, I was scared to death. We weren't married at the time, we had been talking about it for a few years, but kept putting it off, so needless to say we decided to go ahead and do it. The thought off something happening to him and I never married him, was scary so, on July 22, 2006, we finally did it!! My husband went through with chemo and to date he has had about 4-5 surgeries, but the cancer is gone!!! YAY!!! We are still fighting the after effects, he keeps getting incisional hernia's and he keeps having to have another surgery, but I am hopeful that this is just a temporary side effect. Well, that pretty much tells you everything about my life the last few years.

About the weight, I have always struggled with my weight. I was never a small person, but I WAS a lot smaller than I am now. I gained a lot while I was pregnant with my son, plus afterward, I was taking birth control and that made me gain even more. I have never been able to get all the weight off. A few years ago, while all this with my husband was getting going, I started doing weight watchers and I was walking everynight with my sister and a friend of ours that lives in the same neighborhood and I had gotten down 30 lbs. I felt great, I still had more to go, but I could feel the difference. But unfortunately it was going on the same time my husband was going thru one of his major surgeries and I know it is not a excuse, but the stress caused me to go off my diet and I gained all 30 lbs back and then some. I feel terrible about losing all that weight and then gaining it all back, I gave up and quit, but, I really need to lose the weight again and hopefully lose it all, because I want to be here for my son for many years. It is very important to me!!! Anyways, I think I have rambled on long enough... GOOD LUCK to you all and to myself.
