Smile New here!

Hi all!! I'm new here, wanted to introduce myself. I'm Amber, 27yr old mom of 2 boys, 7yr old Billy & 4mo old Payton. Wife of Billy. I'm a Nurse and am ready to get this long carried weight off! I guess you could say I started the SBD today. I am currently 176lbs and am hoping to lose 46lbs to be down to 130 at the highest. That's my goal! I look forward to getting to know you all and sharing our ups & downs!

Goal by Summer!!

Welcome to The Beach, Amber. I will move your post into the Fat Chicks On The Beach Forum where you will find lots of support and suggestions.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

Welcome, Amber! Glad to see you on the beach!

There are two other nurses and one phlebotomist on this board right now (RNMOM and ADDFlower, Mamacita)...I think we're going to be the healthiest forum on these boards!

I hope so. It would be really encouraging if I could even just lose one more pound. I would feel like I was on the right track.

Most people stall in weeks 3-4 but if you take your measurements you will find that your size is probably getting smaller. Make sure you are eating plenty of vegies, drinking lots of water and getting some exercise. Stalls are common, you just need to work through them.

Hi there all and welcome to the beach. As to the stalling after around a month, it does seem to happen for a lot of people. Best to focus on how much looser your clothes feel. xx

Here's the new rule. Break the wine glass and fall in to the glass blower's breath.
