Hello & Salutations from the Midwest.

My name is Dani. I'll be 36 this year & I'm a single mom of an awesome special needs daughter. She's 10 going on 30 lol, if you're a parent you know how it goes. 

I may have posted before as I technically joined 6 months ago but I don't recall using the site really. This time, I hope for it to go different. And I apologize for the length of my introduction, or re-introduction.

I know it's cliche to say new year, new me. Jan 1st is a bad time to decide this, but truth is, this decision I didn't make more as it was made for me. 

See, a year ago yesterday, my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer metasized into her bones. She started to go down fast and ended up in a nursing home. I lived with her and she was my co-parent and best friend. This has led to me having to do a lot of growing up quickly. 

In the process, I started losing weight. I'm not shy so I'm gonna lay numbers out there. I was to what I call, my danger weight. 295 lbs. I always said if I hit 300, I'd kill myself.

Well instead, I started losing weight. And my pants didn't fit anymore. I had to buy a belt. I'd say the belt's too big now, if that's even possible. As of my last weigh in, which I now do quite frequently, I weighed 220. Here in lies the problem. I have been stuck between 220 and 230 for a couple months now. I can't get below 220 and I know it's possible.

I am proud of the 75 pound weightloss. But now I want more. And I want to tone up what I got. I want to get down to at least what I was when I was at my skinniest. 175. It's not that far off. It's actually insight.

So tomorrow I will start some of these exercises. But what I need is support. Friends. Someone to hold me accountable as I don't hold myself that very often.

God Bless ya'all & good luck in your journey of 2019.
