I was very happy to find this forum. I definitely need support in weight loss, and hope to be able to help others as well.
To reach my "fantasy" goal weight I need to lose 105 pounds. I've just started and lost 3lbs...well, it's a start.
Since today is 1/16, I think I've started over about 12 times since the New Year. This year is it! I resolve to be under 200 lbs by Christmas-a pound a week should be realistic, right?
I'm thirty two, married and the mother of a two and a half year old son. You would think I'd be thinner from chasing him around!
One of the main reasons I want to lose weight is to keep up with him and set a good example for him of healthy eating habits. I've had problems with food since my late teens, but have been seriously overweight for about ten years. I'm addicted to chocolate and pizza....I don't think I"m alone!
I've messed up in the past by giving up entirely when I slip up. This year, if I mess up, I'm just getting right back on. I'm not following a specific diet, just eating sensible portions of healthy foods (most of the time!) I've tried weight watchers, but I don't like counting points I know if works for many people, but I could not stick to it.
Thanks for reading. I hope I didn't ramble too much
