Hey Everyone,

I just decided to go back on WW and an using books for a previous attempt at losing weight.

I gained 90lbs with my youngest child eight years ago and when all was said and done, I was 185lbs. I lost about a year ago but in the last 4 months have gained 20. I find myself tired, grumping and starting to get depressed.. so I decided to not let it control me anymore and here I am. I just know that you need support to do this.

Also, I find it hard to really eat healthy because I don't have a lot of money and am on a tight budget. Any ideas?

Here is my bio:

If you're on WW do you like it?:I do like it a lot but I think my books may be outdated and sometimes I do find myself going "no, it can't be that many points so it isn't" denial is a pain!
Mini-Goal October 31st!

Long Term Goal (Hoping by 1/25)

Howdy! I'm new to this site as well. I am excited to finally find a forum of people who are sharing similar struggles with weight loss.

My name is Blump (obviously not my real name, but a fun nickname) and I have approximately 100 pounds to lose or more. I've been married to my wonderful hubby for 9 years and, in that time, I have gone from 125 pounds to 240! I know that realistically I may never be back down in the 120s, so my goal for now is 140. I would love to be able to do this within the next 1 or 1-1/2 years. My approach is the WW-At-Home kit, which I recently purchased. I will be officially starting on 9/1/2006, but thought I'd get a jump start the next few days to get ready.

I look forward to getting to know all of you better.
