Smile Introducing myself

Hi all featherweights!

I've been lurking here for a few weeks, waiting to post until I felt like I had enough diet time under my belt to feel like it really was "for real this time" (hence the user name!)

I'm 5'3, 43 years old, a (currently) stay-at-home mom of 2 school-age boys. I hate the gym! I've dieted on and off since I was about 15, and have always been chubby at the least. Between pregnancies, I spent too much time in the 150-160 lb range.

Most recently I started dieting again on Jan 8. I log all my food and exercise, and I'm trying to focus on eating healthy while not going over 1200-1300 cal per day. I have a treadmill which I use about 45 minutes, 4-5 times per week.

I lost 3 lbs easily last week (mostly water I know) and I know that now the hard work is really beginning. So I'm hoping to continue to get hope, inspiration and good advice from this terrific bunch!

See you!

Hello Thistime,

Apart from your age, weight, height and kids you sound just like me (um ). Ok what I mean is I'm always chubby too - just some years I'm chubbier than others. I'm so fed up of it I WANNA BE THIN.

Anyway, welcome I probably post far too often and annoy everyone but i love it here cos the advice is great, the support massive and I may be a female and great at multi tasking but I cannot eat and type at the same time, hence why I post so much! (could also be beginners enthusiasm I suppose).
