Talking New to the Forum

Hi! My name is Jessica! I am a mother to two boys (Sean & Trae). With my first son (Sean, who is now 4) I had just started working out and gotten down to 180 lbs when I found out I was pregnant. During the pregnancy I ate very unhealthy because "I was Pregnant" (my excuse) and put on 40lbs. After giving birth I never really even tried to lose the weight, finding excuse after excuse. I got up to around 225lbs. With my 2nd pregnancy (Trae, who is now 8 months old) I had just started dieting and trying to lose weight when I found out I was pregnant. During this pregnancy I ate really healthy and actually lost weight (still had a 7lb11oz baby), I stayed right about 220-230 my whole pregnancy and the doctor was really impressed. I breastfed for 3 months and felt like I was doing a good job. Until I stepped on the scale. Boy was I wrong and very disappointed. I was back in the 240s. Now I am 246 and am FED UP!! I am tired of being hot just because I weigh so much. I was hefty all through high school and it wasn't until college that I started to get my weight under control, which meant close to 200. I have gotten to where now I am focused and ready to diet and exercise. I have started exercising and am trying to eat healthy. I have really really good days and then I have really bad days. I am definitely an emotional eater and right now my stress level is very high. For some reason it seems like I cannot go into the grocery store without picking up a candy bar or soda (even if its Diet). Some days I am very focused and nothing can stand in my way and other days I am on the couch with a bag of potato chips. I do not want to set a bad example for my boys that it is okay to be over weight and eat poorly. I am hoping to find motivation here and find other people dealing with the same struggle I am. I have tried getting support from other people in my life and while my sons' father is VERY supportive no one else is, they can all lose weight whenever they want. I look forward to meeting all of you
