Hi. I'm Charlotte. I'm overweight. And I'm finally doing something about it.
To not be boring with all of the details, here's the short of the story.
April 2008 - Got married at around 210 pounds
October 2008 - Two months pregnant, 222 pounds
January 2009 - Still 222 pounds... how I managed that, I have NO CLUE
May 2009 - Baby boy was born, with me at 265 pounds! (How in the world did I put on 40+ pounds in four months?!?!)
January 2011 - Got tired of my clothes cutting off circulation (little joke there...), started to exercise and watch my eating. Weighed in at 240
May 2011 - Weighed in at 201!
Summer 2011 - Things got interesting in the home life, and all diet & exercise went the way of the wind
September 2011 - Pleasantly surprised by pregnancy
May 2012 - Baby boy was born, with me topping out around 240 pounds
April 2013 - Weighed in at 240 pounds. Again, got tired of the tight clothes, getting winded at the top of the stairs, feeling blob-ish. Started weight loss endeavors again!
August 2013 - Weighing in now at 211 pounds, but have been at some sort of stand still for a good month or so.
TODAY - Ready to really get started again.
I have six weeks until some pretty exciting events. Think I can drop 20 more pounds by then? The bet's on...
