Hi everyone! I have done Adkins before and did great. I had a rough year losing my job then getting it back and all the financial issues that go with such troubles. Everything has come full circle now and better. I feel like the struggles made me stronger. I gained a bit over that time and I'm ready to get it off! I'm starting on Saturday and am very excited. I'm only 5'2" and am up to 206lbs my goal is 125lbs. It's funny how you have to be in a certain frame of mind to get going but I'm there! I'm so tired of picking out clothes to make myself invisible. Putting on layers to hide bulges instead of cute outfits I look forward to this journey with all of you!
