Default Hello from Illinois

Hello, My name is Susie. I'm so excited to be part of your weight loss family. I will be 40 on OCT 14. I have been married for 20+ years. We have 4 sons 20-10. I have struggled with my weight since giving birth to my oldest son. In 1997 my heaviest was 260 lbs and in a year and a half i lost 110 pounds. As soon as i hit the 110 mark i become pregnant with my second son. I gained all my weight back by the time he was born. Sadly i never could lose the weight i had put back on. I actually gained more weight and was up to 308. Over the summer i descided to make some life changes. So on July 28,2012 I started my life change. I'm doing the slim fast diet. As of today I have lost 40 lbs. My goal is to lose 160 pounds in 15 months. That will put me at 140 lbs. I walk at least 5 miles daily and sometimes rides my exercise bike for 6 miles. I lift weights 3 times a week. I do keep a food/activity journal for everything I do. I find that it keeps me in check.

Hello Susie and Everyone from Illinois: After several failed attempts at different diets I've decided to try IP - Monday will be my informational session at Matzner Chiropractic and I'm looking forward to it. For the past week I've been going thru the threads here on 3FatChicks in an attempt to garner as many tips as possible. The support on this board is fantastic! Thanks everyone for sharing your knowledge!
