My introduction :)

Hi everyone! Been lurking around and thought I'd introduce myself. I am Penny, I'm 35 years old, married and have 2 kids 13 and 9.....I have been overweight my whole life, but fairly stable at my current weight for the past 5 or so years. I currently weigh 273, about twice what I 'should' weigh.



My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for nearly 2 years with no luck. It's so frustrating, and I feel like maybe the weight is preventing it. Soooooo, I'm giving weight watchers another try. I've done it in the past and been successful up to about 20 pounds and then I give up....so hoping I can avoid that this time around.


I've been to other boards, but It's really hard to feel supported from women who are trying to lose 20 pounds and are just distraught over it.....I feel like it's such a completely different ballgame for us....hope to get to know all of you!

Hi Penny....I agree with you about being on boards with women who are trying to lose 20lbs. As you said this is a "diffferent ballgame".
