Hello my name is Desiree. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. I lost 150 pounds got preggo got to 280 had baby lost 40 and am now back at 280(daughter is now 4). It seems like i can not keep weight off and then i give up. It just feels to hard but i am so unhappy with myself. I guess im looking for some1 to talk to and maybe b an online workout buddy

Hello and welcome to the board! Im on here several times a week checking in. Ive been on this journey 6 weeks today! There isn't anything wrong with you maybe you just need extra support or someplace to vent. The board is a little slow right now im hoping it picks up! Ive heard good things about zumba but im not in a place to try it myself yet. Im not doing anything in particular just watching portions, journaling my foods, and staying away from soda and sweet tea! I also only buy whole grains and shop the outter portion of the store as much as possible. The only excercise I get is from my daily walks. Ive worked up to a mile now everyday rain or shine:).


Good Luck on your journey!

Hi Desiree and welcome to our board.


Like the other ladies said, there is nothing "wrong" with you.

Fast food can be an addiction in and of itself.

Hello my name is Sherrie. I am 5 foot 4 inches tall and 280 pounds about a month ago I hit rock bottom and weighed 294 I freaked out. I have managed to lose 14 pounds but have a long way to go. I am currently using a bodybugg I just got last friday it's pretty high tech but it tracks your calories burned by wearing an arm band and you download it onto a online program that you purchase. I bought the program and bodybugg both on ebay. The online program can be used without the armband. to track calories in and you manually enter activity. I weighed 283 friday and am at 280 this morning. I think it helps me track and keep myself accountable. This is a good site to come to to vent or to get support. keep coming back and you will see the time you put in here is worth it.
