Smile Pass the sunscreen, can I join you on the beach?

Good afternoon ladies!!

My name is Jen and I am the mom of twins. My little man and princess are 17mo. I currently work part-time as a healthcare consultant. I started SBD in January and had lots of initial success. But I have been in a rut for about 2 months now. Not gaining, but not moving towards my goal either.

I am looking for some inspiration to jumpstart my loss again. Right now, I would like to see the 170s. I know I *should* lose more than that, but one step at a time.

I have done WW in the past (went from HW of 231 down to *exactly* where I am now...) but stopped when I finally got PG with my little and . They turned one and I looked in the mirror and said something had to change.

So here I am, sand in my shorts...ready to settle in on the beach.

Welcome, Jen, and here's the SPF30. Geez, I hate it when I get sand in my shorts!
Aside from that, you'll like it here.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

Glad you're here Jen - We live in Livonia, but commute to Ann Arbor daily, it seems.

Glad you're joining us, Jen! I started on SBD in Jan, too, and like you, I was losing at a fast pace at first, then I hit a plateau that seemed to last forever. Now I'm losing about 1 or 2 lbs a week, so HANG IN THERE! Add something new to your diet to confuse your body for a day or two - that really helped me.

Default Hi

If you have sand in your shorts this is the place to be to get your shorts kicked! These people are the best!
Heaviest ever! 190.5
Current weight is 178.5
In 2004 I started the incredible journey of SB and lost 53.5 pounds! I am ready to find that road again!

Welcome, Jen!

My sisters are identical twins, and boy did they give my mom a run for her money! I know you are getting lots of exercise with those two! Have you joined Mothers of Twins? My whole family had a blast growing up with that group!

I just got out of a plateau myself, but it happened on its own and was only two weeks long...I can't imagine two months! Can you post a sample of your daily meal plan so we can look it over and try to help? Do you drink a lot of water? Do you exercise? Are your clothes fitting any better? Are you measuring or is a cheat sneaking in there? (I am horrible about measuring and know that I need to!)

We'll do all we can to help. Looking forward to getting to know you and your cuties!

Hi Jen

good luck on the beach.

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