Hi I'm Rebecca. I'm 33 with three kids and a single stay at home mom. I weigh 160 and am 5'6. My goal is 120. My normal weight before the last three years was 120-130. Now I'm too embarrassed to be in public. Getting active has been a challenge with kids, no friends, and trouble leaving my house. I need help. Any advice, welcomed. Thank you

I am doing a 5 pound jump start challenge on the message boards under challenges...its starts Monday with a start weight--and you weigh in every monday until you hit 5 pound loss. No fuss no muss. Just a place to log weekly until we hit 5 pounds.

HI. I'm Bea. I'm 5'5 and 141lbs. I've been trying to lose weight for a while, but all I've managed is to gain even more weight... I'm at my heaviest, and as such not feeling like the soul of the party, if you know what I mean. Even though I try to exercise as often as I can, I know that the big problem is my diet, because I just can't fight temptation, and one cookie turns to 5+. Anyone wants to be buddies?

I just joined this site. I'm a stay at home mom of 4 year old twins. I used to be a competitive athlete, however, since having the kids, I've had multiple medical issues and terrible injuries that just don't heal. When I'm able to exercise, I have no lack of motivation. But since the injuries, I'm using them as an excuse to lose control over my diet. I've gained about 30 lbs, and I'm very frustrated with myself. Anyone want to be buddies?

Lchornets9111/24/2017 6:43:16 PM

I do! I'm a nurse - mom of 2 with that same 30 lbs to lose! I'm busy and tired and have the best of intentions and worst follow through! I need something - someone - to help with motivation and accountability!!

Hello, I'm 34 years old, 5'0", 198 lbs at 90Kg. Had lost 6.9kg in 3months earlier this year. However at the peak of my progress I suddenly fell ill with a medical condition that's still being looked into. Currently I'm not allowed to go to the gym, I am only allowed to walk so that's what I'm doing right now. The part that I regret the most is when I fell into a downwards spiral into a dark confusing place and basically used food to escape all the bad feelings. It seems selfish as I know people have gone through worse than this. Since my walking is back on track now (still with a lot of reactive pain and still no answers) I just have to get my food back on track as well. I'm Looking for a buddy and support. Also interested in hearing other member's stories.

Hello, I'm Hailey. I'm about 240lb and 5'7-5'8. Every day I tell myself 'today is the day' but is it really? No, I last about a day or 2 but then my motivation sinks then I'm just like 'I'll start back up tomorrow'. I try but then I say something on treating myself so I don't either do the exercise or eat something bad. I been judged the whole time growing up and been picked on. I've tried to fit in and be socially acceptable and be someone I'm not. I've always blamed my looks and yet I still do. I cant even look in a mirror without wanting to break down and cry anymore. I want to prove everyone they are wrong. That I can do this. I always make plans but never pull threw. I want to show them I can succeed in this. I always watching YouTube videos or doing research on new ways. What inspired me each time to do it was watch weight loss success stories. I end up crying but like it's understanding right? I'm wanting to lose it in about a year maybe? Or close? I still live with family and I've talked to my mother on healthier things but she always ends up putting me down and when she does accept it she just don't even buy the healthy stuff? I don't want to be at risk of any health problems and I want to find my true self I really do it's just I feel the need to actually accomplish something such as the thing that's been bothering me since I was a kid. Doctors don't seem to help when I talk about it? They just say the same blah blah blah ya know? I don't have my car yet to even do to gyms and what not or even local groups. Then I thought maybe at one of THESE groups-sites- maybe can help me reach my goal. I just want to become me- know myself but I feel like my weight is stopping me to doing so much. I want to lose it before college starts up next year and trying to get a job for stuff but busy with schooling

agirl12/18/2017 2:59:39 PM

I'd love to be your buddy,

Tegz 8/4/2017 1:59:09 AM
