Hello everyone,

My name is Othella and I am a mother of 2. I have been trying to win this battle with my weight for years now. I tend to get discouraged when everyone is looking at everything that i am putting in my mouth, it's to much pressure. Anyways I have not told anyone in my life that I see on a daily basis that I am once again going to start to lose weight so I can focus on that and not on what they think. 

My plan is to work out in the morning and at night. What I don't know is for how long. I know I need to push myself and also build myself up so I have to do the first workout first to measure everything. My starting weight today is 236.6lbs and I would like to lose 50lbs. Tonight I will start a workout chart. WISH ME LUCK!!!!
