Default Hello from Texas!

Hi everyone,

Glad I found this site, everyone's success stories are very motivational.

I am a 25 yr old British girl. I married a Texan last year and emigrated to the States. I also put on 30lbs on arrival (think it has something to do with the super-super-sized portions!).

We're wanting to start a family but I would really like to shift some of the unwanted weight.

I started last week at 181lbs and am now on 176lbs (most of this was water weight I'm sure!). I've started watching my calorie and fat intake, trying to increase my protein intake and keeping my carbs balanced.

I work out 3 times a week with weights and cardio. I also do martial arts twice a week and am about to start belly dancing again. So hopefully I'll be able to get on track (and into my skinny clothes again!) ... perhaps a little more toned than last time too.

I just need to stick with it! And try and avoid the candy dish as much as possible!

Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Best wishes,
Vicki

Hi, what part of the UK are you from? I am a Texan (well, kinda--I only moved here 7 years ago) that married a Brit...and I too am trying to lose the weight to get ready to have a baby! Good luck to you, I really hope you reach your goal!

Welcome, AugustChild!

LOL, from the UK to Texas? Oh, that's gotta be a big adjustment!

You are so right about our super-duper size portions! I keep reading that a "normal" portion of food is about the size of a fist. (!!!)

Lots of friendly people here & good info. Good luck!

Hi HeadChick!

Welcome to you, too!

To make yourself a ticker, go to the top of the page, click "Quick Links". Scroll about 1/2 way down, then click on Signature Weight Ticker!

Just post if you need more help :-)

Good luck on your weightloss/baby making journey!!
