Awesome stories
I too have struggled with my weight ALL my life - I have always had and probably will large legs.
I fought hard as a 17 year old to lose weight to make the max cut off to get into the Navy - I did with nothing to spare. I gain weight in the Navy - mostly muslce - BUT I got pregnant - gained WAYY to much - didn;t loose much - Then my 2nd and 3rd pregnancy came with weight gain and misscarriages - well that weight was stuck - I was depressed and didn't care since I had lost 2 babies. I was considered to be a habitual aborter and my first child was "luck" I was scheduled for surgery and BAM -pregnant - on bed rest at first so I wouldn't loose this one - He stayed around. Then a surprise -pregnant again - after trying so hard between the misscarriages and my 2nd child - we were shocked - She came along with weight - I lost some weight but never got back to my pregancy weight (of any child). I have tried all the weight loss programs - scams and non scams. Weight Watchers has been the only thing that worked. I started last July 11 and lost 56 lbs. I have maintained for almost 6 weeks now. I feel so much better and feel so much better. I weigh less now than I did when I got pregnant with my 1st child - Yes I said 1st (and that was 18 years ago (almost))!! I dont ever remember buying clothes this size (in school I jumped from kids sizes to size 10 and 12)
I recently went out of state to visit relatives and they were amazed - really pumped up my ambitions to keep it off this time. Making good choices is 2nd nature now - visiting the family they had snack cakes and junk food - I just didn't want them - I went to the store and bought fruit - and they started eating the fruit by the end of the week!! Maybe I rubbed off some to them

Thanks for all the inspiring stories. It keeps me modivated

Wow, you look awsome. You don't even look like the same person!! Other than the hair of course. I can't wait until I can post in here about my success. Reading stories like yours give me hope. I am doing well losing but I can't wait to be in your shoes.

Welcome Jo, and congratulations! But I think you need a new user name now since you certainly aren't a Big Momma any longer!
