Weight Loss Support - New and can't wait to get started!

I am new here, but unfortunately I am not new to dieting! I have done this before and thought I had beaten the weight gain until this last year. :( I was on LA Weight Loss and lost 40 pounds but then I gained it all back and more after I got on maintainance. :devil: I am more than ever determinded to lose all of that weight again. I know what it is like to be skinny and feel good all around. I am tired of being tired and having no energy for either of my kids. I have two boys ages 6 and 7(for two weeks) and I am married. This weight gain has been a real big issue for my husband and that doesn't help the marriage any. I just want to be able to go play with my kids and do things around the house without feeling like I just don't have the energy to do right now. I know that if I just get out and play with them more often that I will be able to get a lot of exercise in that way.

I do not like to exercise at all, but I know that I have to do it this time to really make it work. I have watched the Biggest Loser and really want to just eat smarter and exercise a lot more! I haven't gotten the book out yet but I am looking forward to getting it soon. I am hoping to just get my fat butt moving and exercising more in the next few weeks. I do know that I definitely need the support of friends in order to make this change complete. I couldn't have done it last time without the support of the people at LA Weight Loss. I hope to find all kinds of support here.

I also need to fix better meals for my family. I am thankful that my kids are not big at all. I am trying to make sure that they don't get that way too. One thing is sure and that is I do make them get out and exercise as much as possible. I need to just get out with them this year! :)

I have been making a lot of changes for 2006. I am also getting rid of so much junk that is in my house. It feels so good to let go of these things and so I am hoping that letting go of the weight will be as freeing and easy as all of my junk. Well here is to a happier and healthier 2006! Happy New Year to all of you!:D
