Hello to all the WLB followers! I am so excited to be a contestant for season 7 of Win, Lose, or Blog! I have followed along by reading for many seasons and last season I joined in with the mini contest and I was a lucky winner.

I have been larger than my healthy weight for about 15 years (ummm yeah, just did THAT math . . . not so much fun). Sure I have lost weight a time or two or three but it never quite stayed lost.

You know how it goes, right? You decide to try the latest diet fad, or to modify what or how you eat, or to exercise more. You do great. You lose weight. Then life slaps you in the face and sort of gives you the finger because not only do you gain back what you lost you also gain a few extra pounds. Why thank you LIFE! Can I now show you where to stick that finger?!?

Well, I am now on what I hope will be my last journey to losing a large amount of weight. I have to be realistic and accept that I will not lose weight now and forever stay at that weight (refer to above comment about life and the finger). It is my plan to never have to lose over 75 lbs to reach my goal.

Over the course of the next seven weeks I will share more of my story, what I have been doing this time that I feel is making the difference, and various other thoughts because I am sort of random like that.

Thanks for following along with all of the contestants as we lose weight, get fit, and have fun.
