Hi, my name is Cynthia. I am on my second weight loss journey. A few years ago, after being overweight my whole life, I lost 90 pounds through exercise and healthy eating. Then when I got pregnant with my second child in 2009, I gained 50 pounds. Since then, I have not been taking care of myself very well. I am currently about 174, wanting/needing to lose in between 45-50 pounds. Being a single mother of two kids, ages 6 and 3, and working full time is exhausting. So making/finding the time to exercise is my biggest problem. I am so tired, all I feel like doing is laying around. But...I am so uphappy with the way I look. I cannot fit into any of my "skinny" clothes I once wore when I weighed 129 pounds. Plus, I am always so tired. I don't know if it is my schedule or my health ( I have a doctor's appointment in the next few days) that makes me exhausted all the time. I am sure being overweight is a factor. Not to mention my three year son is a nightowl and an early even on my days off I don't get to sleep in. All I know is that I have got to lose this weight. I am working on a week straight of eating healthy, low calorie meals. My goal was to run on my treadmill at least 30 minutes a day; I accomplished that goal from Sunday to Wednesday (April 14-16), but has slacked off since due to not feeling well. But my eating habits have been good, so that's a step in the right direction. If anyone wants to motivate each other, keep each other accountable, or just have some good conversation....add me as a friend.
