I've been lurking for about a month now, so I thought I'd introduce myself.

I've been overweight for just about forever. jI was the fat girl in high school - only now I don't think I was fat!

I did lose a bunch of weight when I was 20, I went on Metabolife. Bad I know now, but it did take the weight off. I kept it off for awhile, but then regained it all plus more.

I've since had two full term pregnancies and topped out during one pregnancy at 299 pounds.

After I had my daughter I got down to 268 without doing anything but nursing her. Then the holidays came and I shot back up to 278. On 12/27, I started WW and am now down to 254 (today was WI).

I'm a SAHM to my beautiful daughter who is just shy of six months old. I'm BFing her, so I get to an extra 10 points. I've been doing little goals along the way, but I'd be thrilled to get back to 200 before we start trying for our next child. Ultimately, I'd love to lose 100 pounds, but I'm willing to take a break while pregnant. ;)

I've been reading along and feel like I know some of you already. Thanks for having me. :)

Nice to have you here! I'm in the same boat as you...gained a bunch while pregnant (but already was overweight to begin with) and neve quite lost it all. I'm working to lose weight as much as I can now as we are trying for another baby and will take a "break" from trying to lose weight once that happens.

Good luck to you and congrats on the baby!
