:D Hi everyone I just wanted to introduce myself to all of you. I'm a divorced mother of four children who I raise by myself...quite happily might I add... :) I paint and sell things online for a living. I have a awesome boyfriend who is my shining star, so patient and kind to me. I have struggled with being slightly over weight for about 10 years now since I have got pregnant with my first child. I was highly abused in my marriage to Satan and I would eat to numb the pain inside of my heart. Now I'm just trying to gain a normal life back since leaving my now ex :D husband back in August of 2006 and finally divorcing April 10th of this year. I right now am only focusing on losing about 10 and some odd pounds. If I'm happy there I'll stay but if I choose to lose more then so be it, but til then small goals... :wink:

I actually grew up in Atlanta, Georgia!!! I have some great childhood memories - especially having a white Christmas *starts day dreaming*.

Good luck with everything! Yell out if you need a little help.

Hi Angie and welcome to the forum!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Let bygonnes be bygonnes.
I'll say that when there is a will there is a way and we will both certainly achieve our desire weight soon, isn't it?
