Hi there! My name is Kristy I am a 28 y/o mom to a 19 month old boy, wife, ER nurse and step-mom and soon to be student--AHHH!! Sounds like a lot when you lay it out there!! I am very busy to say the least. I just recently got over being sick with meningitis (no I did not get it at work!!) and was down for about 3 weeks. The most unfortunate part about being sick, I think at least, was the fact that I was on steriods, for the swelling of the brain (sounds worse than it was)--well, I gained at least 10 lbs. which is a lot when you are only 4' 11". Also to add to that I just stopped breastfeeding before I got sick and gained some weight. I need to lose about 30-40lbs.

I have been chubby/overweight most of my life, there have been a couple times where I have lost and got down to 108 once and about 115 another, I am currently somewhere between 154-160, weighed on a few different scales. I joined a weight loss challenge with some friends and for that I am 154, will weigh again May 10. I felt great and had so much self confidence, I don't know what happened. I am a binger and I LOVE food and I LOVE to eat. My husband told me this morning, which he has NEVER said before, that I eat so much food and he just can't believe it and I wanted to say yeah because I am ADDICTED to food but he just doesn't get it. He says eat less, yeah it is that easy--NOT!!

I have started with the Superfoods Rx the last couple days, prepping for next week, as I need a lifestyle change and not a diet per se, I hope this is something I stick too, I am ready to be a loser!! I have LOTS of questions!!

I really look forward to the support of this board!!

Hi, Kristy, glad to meet you! I'm fairly new myself, but I can tell you that this is a wonderful place to find support and answers to your questions.

Sounds like you have your hands full between work, family, and school!

Welcome Kristy, I just joined a few days ago too. The support and ideas are great, and the accountability really helps. Thank goodness "dieting" can be all about good foods (superfoods) these days. No chalky shakes for me :-)

Hey there! :welcome3::welcome::wel3fc::welcome2:

I hope you'll love superfoods as much as I do. I've been with it since January/February sometime, it's great. The foods taste great and are so good for you, win win!
