Hi,


My name is Jamie, i have two kids, age 5 and 2, and they are mostly what i live for. in wanting to be better for them and myself i thought maybe joining this board for ideas and support might help. i have always been overweight and tried just about every kind of diet. my current weight is 250 my goal weight is 140, but i can't even imagine what that would be like, so for now i would be ecstatic if i got under 200. not sure what else to say here, but i would like to join in on the board if that is ok with everyone.


Jamie

Welcome! Glad you found us! Yes, this is a great place to go for tips and support. What is your plan for losing the weight? Or are you just doing common sense - eat less, move more? Or are you choosing a more structured approach? Anyhow, whatever method you choose, we'll all be here for encouragement and support as best we can.

All the best,
Tracie

Hi,


my plan is to eat more fruits and veggies, and portion control on other food, i guess watch my calories and exercise has always been my most successful way of losing. after having my son i was 280, made it down to 207 when i found out i was expecting my second bundle of joy, and now it is time to lose the weight for good!!! i am done having babies, so no more excuses of gaining it back!

Welcome Jamie!

I can tell you that I'm fairly new to this board, make that any board. I have spent time reading and posting and this is an amazing group of women. All of us are on the same journey you are, just maybe different places on the road.

Glad you took the first step!

Blessings, Cg
