I'm new here!
 
I found this forum by accident today. I read a few posts and decided to join.

I am 33 and work full time. I have a husband and a daughter~she is 2.

I have struggled off and on with my weight my entire adult life. It feels with in hte last year it has gotten out of control as I have never been this overweight.

I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant and I followed the diet they gave me to a 'T'. I lost a lot of weight during my pregnancy and after delivering I was 30 pounds lighter than when I became pregnant. I did great with the diet and keeping the weight off until I returned to work. I have a desk job and found myself sitting most of the day and then the weight started creeping up. When I returned to work it was harder for me to keep motivated to follow the diet and exercise like I did when I was pregnant. At this point I am more than 20 pounds heavier than my highest pregnancy weight (5th month).

I think the stress of having a child, working full time and taking care of everyone but myself has caught up to me.

I look forward to finding support and motivation for reaching my weight loss goals.

I am still rather new to the site as well. I do find the forums and blogs to be a great motivation.

Welcome. Since Chicks can be overwhelming at first, I suggest you look for a support group or challenge to join; a small group of friends to help keep you motivated. Find one you like that fits your needs, or inspires you, and just post to join.

Hope this is the first step of a successful and rewarding journey for you.
