Hi everyone! My name is Trisha. 26 and live in Montgomery, AL. A little bit about me: Im engaged to a WONDERFUL man. His name is Thomas, and he's 30 years old. The wedding date is April 3rd, 2011.

I just took my GED test this past Friday. So proud of myself because ive been putting it off for YEARS. Im hoping and praying that I can be in school by summer or fall. Im going into nursing, but my ultimate goal is to become a Nurse-Midwife.

I have a few reasons for wanting to FINALLY lose weight. First reason, is for my health. I dont have any real health problems now, but they are lurking around the corner. The other reason is because im TTC our 2nd baby. Our first baby passed away at 4 months old from SIDS. I believe that my main reason for not getting pregnant is because I am very overweight.

Right now, I am at about 300 lbs. My goal is to get down to about 185-200 lbs.

Enough rambling lol... Hope to chat with you all soon! :)

Hi Trisha and welcome to our board!


We did not get to the weight we are over-night and it won't come off over-night either.

Well ive been trying to get healthier since the beginning of the year. My biggest thing was portion control. Ive mastered it, began walking the block (now twice a day). At the end of January, I was 330lbs. Today, im down to 298lbs :)
