I'm new to this forum and I'm just staring WW today. I am also breastfeeding our 3-month-old DS and we also have two DD's ages 5 & 3. I am looking for encouragement and some buddies to help support me. I am doing WW on my own with books passed down from my mom, so I don't attend meetings. This means I need someone to force me to be honest about how I'm doing on the plan or I guarantee I'll cheat at this point. I'm a person that loves to eat and has a family to cook for, so dieting is hard. Breastfeeding has never been a magical weight loss solution for me. It just makes me hungrier than ever. I am doing the flex plan with 34 points/day and I'm planning on exercise 3-4 days/week. I have weighed this much before and had a baby, lost 30 lbs, had another baby, lost another 30 lbs (plus pregnancy weight too), gained 20 lbs, had another baby (gained 30 pregnancy lbs too), so now I'm back where I was before I even had my kids. What a roller coaster. I want to get near my lowest weight, which was between baby # 2 and baby #3, around 145 lbs. Anyone up for the challenge of helping my chunky butt to stay focused and get back in shape?
