Default Mommy of two, looking to lose 60 lbs

Hi,
My name is Jenna. I am looking to lose 60 lbs. Right now I way 190, and am 5'4".
I never though I was that overweight, even at 190, until I went to the doctor recently to have some blood work done. The blood work came back fine, but I was stunned by the reason given to the insurance for the blood work to be done. It said the patient was "obese". That got my attention, it was so easy for me to convince myself that I wasn't that big, that I still looked like I did when I was 20, but I don't and I am that big. I would love to find some support on here as I try to not just lose the weight, but change the way I eat, live, and grocery shop.

Welcome.

It is very easy to adjust as we gain, with the support of others, let's hope its as easy to adjust as we lose.

Goodluck!

Jenna, welcome, glad to have you join us. I suggest you look for a Challenge or Support group to join; small check-in groups make it easier to connect, get involved, and be accountable. We have groups centering around specific diet plans, themes, or age groups, so find one that inspires you and just post to join!
