I'm new to the board, Hi everyone. My name is Allie, my fiance is John. Our wedding is planned for 10/08/09. I've got a pretty hefty goal set for myself but I know I can do it. I've seen it done. I'm doing part weight watchers, and part dr. recommended plan, plus tons and tons of working out with my mother, ( who by the way lost over 80 lbs in a year on weight watchers). I don't really have a sob story as to how I got so overweight, it just happended. I was in color guard and drill team in highschool, working out regularly, and then when I graduated I stoped working out. I guess it just happend and before I knew it I was out of control. Anyway... I've got a great support system right now, and I know I can do this, I need to do this for myself, and for my future family. Anyway.... I'm glad to see this great support system on the knot and I look forward to getting to know all of you.
