Hi, I've been new to the site all day. I've looked around, met a few buddies and tried to figure it out for the coming up week. The weekdays are the hardest for me.
I am a 26 year old, married for 8 1/2 years, stay at home mother of three. 5y, almost 3y, and 16m SON!!
(teething, asthma, etc., etc.) I homeschool my oldest daughter, I'm starting to work from home as a Watkins Associate and trying to start alittle side stuff on ebay. With all that said, I'm bushed.
I've lost and gained, lost and gained over the years. I've done the Atkins thing, it works but I can't stay on it. I've started to try the WW thing, but for some reason that one is not for me. I've glanced through the South Beach diet, it doesn't appeal to me. I'll tell you the best way I've ever lost weight, was simple, low cal, low fat, low sugar diet plus exercise. However, that was a couple of kids ago. I can handle that eating although it costs money and right now, my family doesn't have any extra to spend. The exercise is what I'm having trouble fitting in. All I have at home is a stationary bike. Early mornings are mine for coffee, bible, net and news. Then my day begins. Any stops I have during the day get interrupted with fights, dirty diapers, screaming, falling you name it. I could start something but I would never get a full workout in. Late at night is the only other time I have, but my husband is watching tv and I'm sorry, but I can't exercise on a stationary bike without having something interesting on tv to keep my eyes off the clock. I know that is alot of whining, but honestly that's what keeps me from exercising. I'm at a loss for that.
I'll begin my eating pattern and hope the rest falls into place. Now that summer is coming on, I'll get to be outside a little more often.
I have about 65 lbs. to go. I want to be down 5 by Easter. I hope some of you join me in this thread, I'm gonna start one each day with the same heading. I'm close to my computer all day and hope to meet up with some buddies that are only a click away when those impulses hit.
Hope to hear from all of you.
