Hello!

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Maria and I'm from Austin ,TX.
I have 3 children, 2 girls and 1 boy. My youngest is 3 months old. Since her birth I have lost 15 lbs. My weight pre-pregnancy was 235. I developed gestational diabetes in my 6th month of pregnancy. I was able to control my glucose levels with diet alone and therefore did not have to take insulin shots. I now weigh 220 lbs. While I was pregnant I did a great job staying away from sweets. I swithced from regular soda to diet. But now that I no longer have diabetes I have started the sweets back up I know I can lose weight if I really put my mind to it. Now I am determined more than ever to lose weight. My mother has diabetes and just recently had to have 2 stents put in due to cholesterol. I do not want to go through that.

Welcome!! I have 3 children also, two boys and one girl. My oldest is 15 and a sophomore in High School and my youngest is 5 and just starting kindergarten tomorrow. I am determined to lose my weight this time as well, I started 5 months ago and have to honestly say that this is probably the first time in my life that I have lost weight in a "healthy" manner. I look forward to getting to know you!

Talking I'm new too!

My name is Gretchen, I just turned 30. Another big milestone, I hit 230 pounds last month, the highest I've ever been and nasty on my 5'5" frame. I am in the first 2 days of "starting over" with my sister-in-law. I have a super hard time with discipline so I'm hoping that this site will help keep me motivated, along with the fact that I am going home in November for a visit and don't want to be this big and uncomfortable. I have been and will continue to check in on here and see how everyone is doing as often as I can. I look forward to getting to know you all better.

Plus, congratulations Maria.

Where is everyone?

Ok, confession time...
Last night, I was so busy that I just had 2/3 of a can of soup (3pts) and a WW dessert (3pts) I had 5 points left, and was planning to have some pop corn. Well, DH came home at 8:30 with pizza. I thought, well one peice will be around 5pts if I pick off most of the topping. I had the one peice, then another, yes, and then another. I had been fine all day, but then was PMSing in a major way, and that pizza was a major comfort, plus I was really hungry. I hope I haven't derailed myself. Tonight is weigh in, and I would really like to lose more then a pound. (I know I know a pound is a pound but......)
