105 pounds to go. aggghhhhhhhh :?:

My name is Donna and I have a goal.

Before children, I was between size 9 and 12 depending on clothes. After the birth of second child I suffered postparterm depression so bad, that not only did I not lose the 55 pounds I gained, I put on another 25 pounds. Grand total 80 pounds. I won't lie, that was 10 years ago. Since then, I have been on every diet known to man. :(

I work, and have a husband. I carry the weight pretty well. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big girl, but nobody would ever guess that I was 228 pounds.

In the past 3 months, I've quit smoking (December) and joined the gym. I have started to run in the past week and I have high hopes that I can start to let some of my weight go.

Wish me luck :D

Good to have you here Donna. Just keep going to the gym and eat good food and you will be there before you know it. I was where you are now last year and I'm down 111 lbs so far. I hope to have another 80 gone by next year at this time.

Welcome Donna!

You sound all fired up and ready to go - hopefully your positive attitude will rub off on the rest of us!

Congrats on quitting smoking and joining a gym - the weight will drop off I'm sure!
