After a life long struggle with my weight, I am finally losing some of these dreaded pounds! I have learned that my mother (love her dearly) has passed down some horrific eating habits, and I've been slowly correcting them. (Who knew you could crave vegetables?!)
I got a jumpstart with my "pregnancy diet." After giving birth to my son, I was 22 lbs lighter than my pre-pregnancy weight. Changing my eating habits (and breastfeeding) helped me loose another 19 lbs.
Now if only I can ...

Now if only I can make exercising a good habit!

This is actually the one I have, only I found it for less on a site I can't seem to find anymore. I had to get past thinking I was too broke to have what I need/want. Sure, I can't have a 2008 Mustang, but I CAN afford payments on a 2001 Mercury Cougar. I couldn't afford an Ironman elliptical, but I COULD afford the Stamina one. It's the same as my theory with food - I can find SOMETHING affordable and desirable. emoticon

Hello and Welcome to Wilmington! I tend to log in daily for a while and then it might be a week before I get time to log in again. I have 4 children, all boys, and they keep me busy. I work full time and volunteer with the
Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts because my sons are involved and then use the weekend to do housework or go out of town with my hubby of 14 years and the kids. We try to stay active and eat well, but it is just sooo hard to do. Good luck with your goals!

Rita
