I'm so very glad you're here! A place for support. A place where there are others with needs just like yours. If the teams you display on your page aren't meeting your needs, search out ones that will. They are here! I belong to some and they really do help me find my way. Post! Get to know folks. Share your journey ... It's OK to let others know when you struggle. That's when folks can lift you up and help make things better. This is a journey when friends are essential. Subscribe to my blogs ... I don't mean to sound boastful, but I do try to post something positive each morning. And we need those positive messages in our day.
Check out my page ... I started out a very large woman. You can do this too!! You are sooooo worth the effort!
I'm so glad you are here! Cathy

Hello! I am going to try this again. The last time I had little time, and I slowly started to slip away from the sight. I am 42 & the mother of 3 daughters. My eldest daughter (19) & my husband seem to be able to eat everything & they stay the same weight. My middle(18) daughter is active, but doesn't have the metabolism of the first 2, & my 11 year old is way larger than she should be. I think she follows me. I come from a family that has always liked to eat. My goal is to lose the excessive weight that I have gained over the years, while helping my 11 year old lose the excess weight without scaring her for life. My great grandma always told me I was fat, I was going to get married, have lots of kids & be fat. I don't want to hurt her like I was hurt. I'm ashamed to say that I just don't have the will power to do this by myself. I have to be strong for the both of us. My oldest daughters & my husband pretty much offer no encouragement, especially when it comes to food preparing, cooking, & what to buy. I'm hoping that some of you can give me the support I need. I think if I can stay motivated I can keep her motivated. I am trying to possible plan a trip to Disney World in April & I would like my daughter & I to be able to keep up with everyone else. I want her to be able to wear kids clothes & not x-large women's. I've tried to stress to my kids that the way you look doesn't matter, as long as your happy, but this 75 lbs is dragging me down & my daughters excessive weight is braking my heart. Please help me to help myself & my daughter. Thank you.
