Brand spankin new here. Quick info. I'm a stay at home mom in a blended family with 6 kiddos (5 currently living at home). I am currently at 219.4 lbs. I've been over weight pretty much all my life. I'm a very picky eater with very bad habits of eating extremely bad for you but so good tasting southern comfort food. Ive had a knee surgery in 95 and since then re-tore my ligaments in that knee. stability at this point causes some issues. I'd love to be around 175 lbs. BUT I lack motivation and find myself full of excuses. I've tried 'em all and can't seem to stick to anything but I'm so tired of being fat and tired.
