Default Are you ~20 lbs overweight? Commiserate HERE!

Hi, my name's Sara. I am 15-20 lbs overweight. I had my first child two years ago (gained 60 lbs during pregnancy, lost about 40 over the course of 2 yrs and then static). I hit the 130s and have had little progress--vacation setbacks. I was exercising and then we had a stressful visit to extended family across the pond. Gained a couple pounds and now I'm doing the weigh-in dance btwn 138-140. I need some support people! Anyone else rocking the same boat? Let's set some goals, cheerlead (whoo-hoo), and whine.

Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

PS: I'm sure there's a similar thread for a 20lb weightloss goal, but nothing new and I'd like to kick some life into it--especially for folks in their 30s-40s.

Me me me!! I am at 160 and working towards 140... and boy, is it tough!!

I am 35 and have three teen daughters. I was at my goal weight around 2.5 years ago... why on earth did I put those pounds back on! However... I am feeling like now is the time! I will lose this weight and get back into my cute clothes!

I'm not overweight according to the BMI charts. However, when you take in account my body fat, I'm in the obese category. I'm a skinny fat girl.

Hi, I'm not quite 30 yet (soon!) but I had a similar experience. I gained 65lbs with DD and I've lost all but 5lbs! However, I still have 25lbs to lose before I get to a healthy BMI so that's my big goal.

There's lots of good advice at 3FC so I hope you stick around! These last pounds seem to be slow going but I can't wait to get there. What plan are you on?

Starting Measurements (B/W/H): about 51/40/46, 240 lbs Goal Reached Pre-Pregnancy: 39/29.5/38, 156lbs Current: about 43/34/42
Started at 240
Onederland 199 (Jan 6, 2010, exactly 2 years after my previous due date!)
Overweight BMI 185 (Aug 3, 2011, one year after joining 3FC!)
Pre-pregnancy weight 175 (Oct 18, 2011)
Called Goal 156
