Hello my name is Amanda. I have 5 young childr en. With having children comes weight and with weight comes saggy bellies Etc LOL. I would like to lose some weight. Currently I am about 220 lbs depending on which way I tip myself on the scale. I can "look" to be about 213 so I am not positive what weight I am. Technically I could lose 100 lbs though I want to get at least down to 135.

I need help with this and support which is why I joined!! I hope to have a great slimming time this summer :P I am playing softball. My problem isnt over eating.. It is lack of exercising.. plus not the best eating.. not over eating but just not the healthiest stuff

Hi guys. My name is Tami and I am also new to posting here. I have been a lurker for over a year now. I have gained alot of help by just reading everyone else's stories. But now that I have lost 75 pounds, I have been at a plateau for almost 6 months now. I have upped my miles that I walk. I now walk about 8 miles a day and eat about 1700 calories. But my weight is actually going up instead of down. I have gained about 8 pounds. I thought maybe you guys could help me figure this out. Thanks so much for your help.

Welcome Amanda and Tami. Tami congrats on your weight loss so far. Have you thought about maybe lowering your calories slightly to see if that helps. Some of the maintainers here say they maintain at 1600 and lower calories. So to lose, you may have to cut calories some since you are getting closer to your goal. Maybe lower 100 calories per day for the first week to see if that makes a difference. Good luck.

Thanks so much for the welcome everyone. I will cut my calories down some. I just have a hard time sometimes. I exercise so much that sometimes I get really shaky if I dont eat. But at the same time I dont want to cut my exercise. I will try about 1500 or 1600 calories for awhile and see how that works. Thanks again.
