Default Any other single moms on here?

Hi, I am new to this site/forum and was wondering if there were any other single moms on here. I am a 35 year old mom to a wonderful little boy about to turn two on January 9th......I am self employed and work from home or my truck ( I am a homeopathic equine vet). I am down from 250 to 200, with a goal weight of 150 (okay if I am honest I'd like it to be 130, but at 5'9 and big boned, I don't know how realistic that is)...anyway, I'd love to chat with anyone else in a similar situation. Maybe we can exchange tips, ideas, encouragement and losses together.

Happy new You!

Jen

Hi I am also a single mom. I am engaged to a great guy though. I am 38 years old and have a 14 year old daughter and an 8 year old son. I am a full time college student (majoring in Psychology and minoring in Women's Studies) and work part time as a legal secretary. I am 5'8 or 5'9 and currently weigh 184lbs. I had gastric bypass surgery almost 3 years ago and was down to 145 lbs before gaining back almost 40 lbs. I just started the south beach diet today! I admiring you for working from home. I would love to be buddies if you like! We can support each other.

Ohhh, it's so good not to be the only SM on here...I was seriously thinking that either I really was the only one or once again, not part of the "in" crowd, lol. I'd love to have a buddy (or two or three). I can use all support and motivation I can get. Email me anytime!

I am single mom 30 of 2 BEAUTIFUL boys 7 & 9. Drug Alcohol Counselor / Prevention Specialist jackie of all trades master of none. I just went grocery shopping and man eating healthy is just plain expensive!!!! No wonder I am fat it is just easier. But this is going to change this year!!! I lost 18lbs since May of 08 and then gained it back cause I quit smiking in Sept!!!! YAY 4 mos for me which is great so I am motivated once again to loose all of this weight starting the Fat Smash tomorow. No time like the present.

Separated Single mom here and new to forum.

I have a soon-to-be 3-year-old. I am eating better in 2009 and doing fat smash diet. Re-learning how to eat healthy again.

I look forward to sharing.
