Hello Everyone!! I am Yolanda, a 26 year old mother of 2 and I have been married over two years. I have been overweight literally as long as I can remember, but I'm working on changing that. I want to be able to be active with my kids and do simple things that I have always been to afraid to try because of my weight. (like roller coasters and horseback riding) Most importantly I want to be healthy, and live to an old age. Diabetes runs in my family, and just six months ago I was an almost 300 pound, pack a day smoker headed to an early grave. My motto in this journey is no excuses. I quit smoking back in January and started my weight loss in march. So far I have lost 67 pounds, after quitting smoking and while having a birth control implant that 'may lead to weight gain'!! I want to be the poster child for 'if I can do it, you can do it'. My 'oh crap' moment back in March was when I realized I now weigh significantly more than I did the day before I delivered my son. I felt terrible about myself, not to mention unattractive and worthless. But I'm taking it back, all of it. I'm going to live, instead of sitting on the sidelines of life. If I can do it, so can you ;-) So who's with me!?!?
