Default 1st post, I hope I can join

Howdy! My name is Sheila, and I would love to know how to magically lose 100+ pounds without diet or exercise.

Nah, just kidding. I am really looking for someplace that I can be me, and not worry that anyone will judge me for my weight. Somewhere that I don't have to hide for failing, and somewhere where I don't have to pretend to be something I am not.

So here is the ugly truth.

I have had 6 kids within 6 years 8 months. I weigh 225 pounds. Not because of my kids, but because I used pregnancy to eat any darn thing I wanted. Craved burgers, must be what the "baby" wanted. Icecream? No problem, have 2 scoops, I am eating for 2 you know. And now, I am great at using the kids as an excuse. Well, it's hard to work out, the kids need me. The baby was fussing, so I sat down holding him all day.

Ugly huh.

So I am done. I want to weigh 125-130. I want to run around with my kids and not be worn out. I want to be in the pictures, not hiding behind the camera.

I want to LIVE!

So Hello, that's me.

I'm proud of you for making the decision - NOW.

I finally lost my baby weight (shortly after my baby turned 23)

Welcome! It is great that you have decided to lose the weight so that you can be active with your children. At least you won't have to worry about lifting weights!
