Hi everyone,

It's time I join in here. I've been lurking a bit since the first of the year.

I started the year at 303 lbs. I wasn't planning on a New Years Diet but breaking 300 gave me the motivation I need. Like many I've gone back and forth and tried a bit of everything. I'm tired of my clothes not fitting, getting dressed every day is a battle because most of my clothes are too small. I'm starting to notice the seatbelt doesn't have as much room in it, sometimes I feel awfully snug in a chair. All of that really humuliating stuff.

At my first weigh in I lost 9 lbs. My biggest fault is portion control so that's what I'm focusing on. I'm planning menus so I always have good food to eat. I was already a member at the Y and have rededicated myself to some good workouts. My name is to remind myself why I have to do it, I don't want to be the mom who is always sitting on the bench watching him have fun.

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Welcome & Congratulations! I have to little girls and I share your sentiments exactly - they deserve a Mom who can be active and free from this baggage. I'm fairly new here myself and it is really an inspirational place!

Welcome to the boards! It's the little things more than the big things that finally make you say "THATS ENOUGH!" It was for me :) Good luck!
