Hi Dana and WidWest Mom!
I am 32, and in this for the long haul! My son is 2 1/2, and as I said, my goal is to lose 60-70 before getting pregnant again, my overall long term need is to lose 100 from my original start weight. I am counting fat and calories, and changing carbs to good carbs. I joined Curves 6 weeks ago (LOVE IT!) and am also taking Xenical under my doctor's care due to my extreme weight and elevated glucose and cholesterol levels. Though the Xenical is pretty good behavior modification, it iis no quick or easy fix, and comes with side effects if you are not serious about lifestyle change
(ok- end of soapbox, as you can tell, I've gotten some flack about taking a med). Needless to say, I am serious about this - it would be alot easier if I didn't like food so much!!
I am married, my husband is supportive but not quite as serious about losing weight himself (though he knows he should), so he can't understand the frustrations that come with this process. Anyway, you will learn I am a bit of a smart alec, and sometimes a bit long winded! (sorry!) Talk to you soon!
