Default Another Newbie with a long road ahead!

Hello Everyone!

I am so thrilled to find this site... it's exactly what I need!! I think I've finally found a group of people that can understand my weight struggle. I have more than 100lbs to lose, and even though I'm sure it's obvious just by looking at me, I can't bring myself to admit it to family or friends. It just sounds so disgusting to me... and these are all people who will go on about having to lose weight even though they're a size 8.

So a little about me... I'm 29, have a wonderful husband and a beautiful son who is 19 months. We would like to start trying for #2, but I really need to lose some weight first. I am a stress eater, a binge eater, a boredom eater, a nervous eater... you name it. I recently started a business, and it's only making things worse..... and it was bad enough to begin with.

I am happy to have found this place..... and hope to form new friendships with people who are struggling with the same issues I am.

I'm soon to be 29 (Dec. 30th), and a Mom of two (DS 9 and DD 5)
Married 10.5 yrs, together for 12.

I think you've found the right place

So glad to have you...keep posting, OK? It's the best place for support I've ever seen.

I know exactly what you mean. But no matter what, you can talk about things here and not feel ashamed. You can do this!
