I am sure you would like to know a little bit about me and how this site came to exist, right? Well I will try to do just that…..

My name is Megan and I was born and raised in Gatineau, Quebec. My dad is a great father and my mom, who passed away when I was 16, was an awesome mother. I lead a regular life like anyone, I go out to karaoke, see the occasional band, hang out with friends etc, but I grew to just love the junk food and I am trying to change that and could use all the support I can get.

I do not place the blame for my weight on anyone but myself. I have been a very big girl my entire life and have tried more times than I can count to lose weight only to gain it all back and more.  It is hard to lose weight, but it is even harder to be FAT!  Even though I got here by myself, I realized I cannot get to where I want to be on my own…which brings me to creating this site!

A few years ago, my friend’s sister had a goal to make a million dollars in one year. She made a site called MyMillionDollarYear.net where she would blog about her progress and what she did to accumulate the money.  I thought of her site and her goal and decided I would make it a goal to lose 100 pounds in a year, and thus was born My100PoundYear.com! My goal was to be 100lbs lighter by October 7, 2010….the day I turned 36.  I didn’t quite make that goal, I believe i had lost 26 pounds from my 35th-36th.  I believe I had set my goal too high and it intimidated me and I ended up not losing at all..

My goal now is to lose 52lbs in 2012, I am well on my way!!

I hope that you will be inspired to join me in my journey, and keep up with my progress in my blog as well as offer moral support and encouragement to keep me motivated.

Thank you for all the support I have been receiving over the last 2 years and the support I will continue to receive, you guys are the best!
