Hi, everyone! I've been on and off this site for a few years, but in that time have made about 4 posts so I'm still brand new.
I am 32 years old, married to a chef (yikes) and have a seven year old son and a 6 week old daughter. (I've got some serious baby weight to lose...)
In all fairness, I shouldn't blame my weight gain on the baby, I was 235 lbs. when I got pregnant. Now that she's 6 weeks old, I again weigh 235 lbs. I picked up the South Beach Diet book at a library sale a couple of weeks ago and am ready to dive in. (I think.) It looks sensible and, with the right support, doable.
I've never been very good at A) sticking to a diet/budget/any other stringent behavioral guidelines or B) belonging to an online forum. I'd like to change both. I look forward to really taking advantage of a forum to gain support, strengthen my will to stick with it this time and also to offer my advice and support. I look forward to meeting you all!!
