Default Hello from the new girl - Here I Go Again

Hello, I am new! I have decided to label my first post, "Here I Go Again", because this is the fourth major attempt I have made to lose my weight.

I am a 29 year old mother with a two-year old and a very stressful job. Overweight nearly all of my life, I have decided again that I want to lose it all and see what skinny feels like.

I want to know what it is like to keep up with my beautiful daughter, what it is like to take her on amusement park rides, what it is like to sit with her at her kid table. But, most importantly, I want to set a good example for her and her health.

I will tell you, I am extrememly scared. But I am more scared to keep going the way I am going. Currently, I weigh 292.5 lbs. (5'6"). The highest I ever hit was 305 during my pregancy. The lowest I can remember is 165 during my Junior year of college.

I need help, I need support and I am hoping to find it here. I have read through a number of the posts and have found nothing but positive, friendly and genuine support and caring.

Can't wait to hear from you all! Thank You!

Welcome to the board! I know you aren't alone in making multiple attempts at weight loss, alot of us here have, myself included. You have already taken a major step in realizing that you need to lose, and wanting to work to achieve it.
Just take it one step at a time, one decision at a time and when you need help, feel free to come on here and post. I know that I may have given up already if it wasnt for all the great support and advice I get here:-)

*hugs* and once again, welcome!
Guess I'm restarting!

Hi and welcome. I started out about where you are now and I too have an almost 2 year old (and an 8 month old too) and that is my main motivation is so I can be an active, healthy mom for my kids and not a sit-in-the-car and watch from the sidelines mom.
My advice to you is to start changing a couple of habits here and there (switch to fat-free or low fat items), add some exercise, etc. and don't try to tackle all of it at once.
