Hi. I"m new here too.

I have 2 kiddos....11 and 10.

Good luck with your weight loss adventure. This site seems like it's a wonderful place for support.

Hit me up if you ever need someone to talk too.

Ok here's me hitting you! Haha. I'd love someone to talk to. What's your "diet" (hate that word).

Right now.....I'm walking/jogging 2-3 (sometimes more) times a week, doing workout videos at home....P90X videos I have and yoga about 5 times a week, and really watching what I eat.

No more eating out...soda....or junk food.

And trying so hard with portion control.

What about you??

Good luck to you. I find this site to be very inspirational, especially when I read about the journeys that members have taken to meet their goals. It really helps me keep on even if my loss seems slow.

I'm walking, and pretty much calorie counting. I allow myself my pms week off though, unless it's a mild week. I do alot of like lean cuisine's or whatever is on sale in the frozen food dept. I have a major, MAJOR sweet tooth that really tries to take control....

I totally get that QD! I was on this site a LONG time ago and loved it then. I'm so excited to be back. I came across it by accident too. I typed in "weight loss avatars" and this was the first site that came up and I was like "oh yeah".......

My friend loves her lean cuisine's!! She tells me about them all the time.

I usually go for a salad for lunch.

As far as cheat days....I have one a week. Usually football Sunday's.

My PMS week wasn't as bad as I thought it would be....although, my husband did wake me up in the middle of the night, and I was munching on his bag of reeses pieces that he didn't put up. Apparently I found them and was snacking in my sleep. lol

I forgot to mention....

I have a major sweet tooth as well....carnation instant breakfast, strawberries and grapes usually satisfies it.

I usually eat like a fiber one bar (chocolate of some sort) as a reward at the end of the day. I have to be careful with those though, cause they're like candy bars, they're so good. I could easily polish off the whole box in one sitting...which would obviously defeat the whole point of why I was even eating one to begin with....
