Name, SO, ages: Kimberly (25) & Stephen (27)

-Any kids? None yet

-Pets? yup. 3 cats and 3 dogs. (though technically 2 of the dogs we're supposed to be finding homes for. We rescued them from the desert so they wouldn't end up at the pound....and well I really doubt they're ever going to go anywhere lol)

-WTT reasons? We want to be marred and more settled.

-How was your Halloween? Fine....didn't do anything. Ate the candy for the non existant trick or treaters. We live in gated apartments so we don't usually get them. Though we buy candy just in case. :-)

Thanks. I did at first, it's been awhile (couple of years) now though so I am feeling stuck and sick of my current body, I still need to lose 40 or 50 pounds to be at a healthy weight. Lately I've gained a few back (after being very proud of not gaining any back for over a year) so I'm feeling kind of crappy about that. I started losing weight in late 2006 when I was 287 and stopped getting AF because of the weight.

But my body is much more livable now - I guess that's why it's harder to get motivated. Cycles are regular - that started happening as soon as I lose a few pounds. I can now shop in regular women's departments and not just Lane Bryant, etc. My friends have told me they think of me as normal sized, even though I'm technically obese. So losing weight doesn't feel like an urgency anymore, just something I'd like to do when I get around to it.

But yeah, when I look at old pictures and stuff, it is shocking. I feel much more like a real person now, I feel accepted - like I don't have to apologize for my body anymore. I'll go swimming in public now, and yeah, I have chunky thighs, but who cares? I'm not trying to impress anyone. But I'd still like to lose more to have a healthier body for pregnancy, and for myself.
