Default Sooooo here I am.

Hello there, another fat chick on a diet here!!

I gotta say, I'm here because I finally hit my breaking point. I can't do this anymore, I am tired of being fat. I am tired of always being the fat mom or the fattest person in the room (or at least feeling like I am.)

The straw that broke the camels back was when my dd said to me "mommy, you got 2 bellies"...well, either that or the numbers 244 on my scale.

I am the heaviest I have ever been in my life, and the prospect of being 250 pounds very soon if I'm not careful was just too much for me to handle.

I am Susan, a SAHM of 4 and a military spouse, living overseas. I am doing WW at home and WATP. I've made it through my first week, actually, this is day 10 of keeping track of my points and exercising. I am done being fat.

Hi Susan

You may enjoy checking out the WW area under Diet Central. (I'm a WWer, too!!!) I, too, was tired of always being the biggest in the room. You're already down almost 5 pounds that's fabulous! And going on day 10! Magnificent! Keep on going! You can do this.

Best of success!!!

I feel ya! MY DD also keeps asking why I still have a fat belly if the other DD is already a year old! And then, with her sweet smile, she says, "But that's okay! That's how God made you!" I keep thinking, well...not exactly.

I am new, too. 2 weeks on WW. God bless you wth 4 kids--I pooped out at two!

We'll make it. After some hard work, we won't be the biggest Moms in the room, we'll be the most determined and strongest because we accomplished our goals! I like to tell myself that "being a good example" for my kids is too vague a goal. I want them to see not just a "skinny mommy," but a Mommy who can do anything--including lose 100 lbs!
