Welcome to my online home for whining & complaining about my weight & my life. I'm starting this journal mainly as a weight loss tool, someplace I can go and vent my frustrations about dieting or life in general as well as share my process of loosing weight and becoming the person I want to be.

A little about myself:
I live in Southern California.

I am 34 years old & fast approaching my 35th birthday.

As my username suggestions I am a very happy wife, married for a little over two years to a wonderful man whom I worship & adore. I honestly do think he's the greatest gift I've ever recieved, that being said there are still days I want to strangle him and I'll probably talk about that alot here since this is my journal for venting & relieving stress. Despite what you may read here, my life is pretty good. This journal is just a small view into a corner of my world: the emotional, intense, sometimes crabby side of myself that I don't generally like to show to the public.

As of 1:05 on April 4, 2007 (the day I started this journal) I WEIGH 305lbs. I'm starting a self improvement plan today and my goal weight is 145 lbs. I'd be thrilled to death if I could make that goal by my 36th birthday about a year and a half from now. That would be a 160 lbs. loss over 17 months. So I need to lose 8-10 lbs. each month. Any encouragement or support would be greatly appreciated!!!
