Greetings from NW Iowa!!:carrot: My name is Carol. I'm 32 and have ben married to Michael for 12 1/2 yrs. We have 6 children who I homeschool. Last Wednesday at my 6 week post partum check I weighed in at 296. After toying with SBD I decided today was the day to jump in. My goal is 150. I gained weight after my first child, and have weighed this for at least 5 yrs. my goal is to be healthier, and a better example to my children. After a bout with pre eclampsia with ds born 11/11/05, I have been diagnosed with hypertension and am on meds. I gotta do something, I have so much to live for, and a lot to accomplish:D I look forward to getting to know all of you.

But anyway, thanks for joining us here. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better.

Thanks for the warm welcome!!! My meds? I had severe pre eclampaia with #6 and am almost 8 wks post partum. I am on Procardia and Labetalol, bresatfeeding so we dont have a whole lot of meds to go with. It is pretty well controlled, but I am determined to loose weight and get off these meds if I can!!!
