Hi y'all! I am a 43 year old SAHM to a 5 1/2 year old girl and a 4 year old boy. I am almost to my goal weight (again!) and I would love to join you here. I have been reading some of the stickied threads and I am informed and inspired by your stories.
I got to my goal weight a couple of years ago and even stayed there for about a year, but gained back about 35 pounds last year (while still going to the gym every day - ay caramba!). I have lost about 30 of them since the beginning of the year by calorie counting
and daily exercise. I lift weights three days a week and spin three days a week, with some running, elliptical, and stair mill thrown in.
It seems that I am really good at losing weight, but have no idea how to maintain it. I like the way I look and feel now, and I don't want to fall back into old habits!
