My quest at finally shedding 100 pounds or more. Good days or bad, weight up or down, exercised or not, I want to blog about it to for the next 12-20 months. Why the next 20 months.

I want to shop in the petite section and not the woman's department. I want to feel and look healthy. I want to be around to enjoy grandchildren. I want be able to jog or maybe even run a mile or two (right now, I can't even do that down our road). I want to take a family photo and not feel like I need to hide behind everyone. I want to fit comfortably into a seat on an airplane; and not be worried for weeks on end at the thought of what if I need to ask for a seatbelt extender. I want to only take up one seat at church, and not hang over the sides. I want..."
