Default In need of support..

Hi, my name is Erica, I am a stay at home mother of 4... I have over 100 lbs to lose and could really use some support, a diet buddy if you will... I know there are so many out there going through the same thing as I am, but sometimes you just get this feeling you are all alone... I hope I have found the right place where I don't have to feel like that ever again...

OMG!! You have DEFINITELY come to the right place. This place is full of advice and support and encouragement. It is a great comfort knowing that there are people just as yourself out there in the world. I would love to be your buddy as I am in the same position as you. I look forward to getting to know you so that we can help one another in our day in and day out struggles to get the weight off.
