Talking New from PA - wanting to lose 50+lbs.

Hi, I'm new here, I'm Julie and I'm from PA. I want to lose 50+ pounds ! I had 5 pregnancies - resulting in only 1 healthy one and gained weight from all of them combined. Now I have my little girl (now 2 1/2 years old) and only lost SOME of the weight. I still have alot to go ! The pregnancies I had ended in miscarriages and 2 ectopic pregnancies. I suffered some mild depression after my first miscarriage and ectopic (only a couple months apart) that's when I began gaining the weight. I was never over weight in my life until this happened with the ectopic. Then when I was pregnant with Jasmine (my little girl) I got preeclampsia (a.k.a toximia) and gained 50lbs. So that added onto the weight that I never took off from my depression = ALOT - Too Much ! So now I'm losing the weight, and feeling great ! I need motivation though, so I found this site/forum and am hoping it will give me that extra kick in the butt ! I'm looking for a buddy to give me a challenge. I love challenges ! It would be SOOO awesome to find a buddy located near to me - in PA or MD. But ANY buddy to keep me motivated and me motivate them woudl be great ! Feel free to email me, im me, or whatever. Hope to hear from someone ! P.S. I'm 25years old, married, with one child, living in PA - near the PA/MD line, and I have 50+ pounds to lose.

Thanks everyone ! I'm about 1 1/2 hours from Pittsburgh - I'm closer to MD. The Mason Dixon (PA/MD) line is only about 3 miles down the road from my home.

hello! I am new here also!
25, 3 kids, married and have about the same amount to lose as you!

I started really working out and eating better about 5 weeks ago and am already down 20 pounds! I am so very proud of myself for that!

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and tell you you are not alone!
