Ready to be thin!

Hi, I am a stay at home homeschooling mom with 2 kids, my little boy is 6 and my little girl is 5. I'd like to lose weight to be a better mommy, plus we're thinking about having another one and I'd like to lose about 30-40 lbs before doing that!
I have always been on the "plump" side, but since marriage and kids, it's gotten pretty bad. My husband is trying to lose weight as well, so that is a great help. We can support each other, but I am home all day with the kids, so I'd like to ...

Love yourself and know that the SOUTH BEACH DIET does work. Read Arthur Agatston, M.D.'s second book "THE SBD Heart Health Program" as it is so full of information that is helpful to staying on the program.

Thanks for the welcome. My boys are 12months 4 days apart. As I'm sure you are aware, it is definitely a challenge but worth it. Thanks again!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. It helps to know there are people who understand.

I hear you on the slacking on the food plan. I'm using the comment from my little girl as motivation to get back on track. I actually worked out AFTER work today! Haven't done that in a very long time. I usually get up early and work out before but it's so hard to get into the swing of things at the beginning of the school year. So in the past if I chose to sleep late it meant to me that I simply wouldn't work out that day. Today I did something different. YAY!

We can do it!

We're practically neighbors!! I seem to remember West Salem being in the news recently. Was it the earthquake? I shop in Salem all the time as it isn't much further than the mall in Mt.Vernon. The gas is much cheaper there and I like Rural King and the IGA there. LOL. I have eaten at every restaurant in Salem. LOL. I used to eat at Fran's before it closed and I bought her cookbook. I also ate at Chicos and Gary's a lot before my diet. Salem has the best DQ in Southern Illnois - had to give that up too. LOL. I have also eaten at the new pizza place and the new garden restaurant though I can't remember their names. Is it CraigO's and Village Garden? I have/had friends who lived there too. One just died - Linda Lance Lutrell Mobley. My other friend is Kathy Albert. I have been to Iuka many times too. We sometimes went the back roads there to Forbes State Park. We go there all the time on our pontoon boat. I just started the phase 2 of South Beach and am already worried. I become afraid and revert to phase one as it is safe. LOL.

We do seem to have a lot in common. I live in a rural setting too in a cabin in the woods. I live 5/1/2 miles east of Dix, near Texico, about a mile from Miller's Lake and 2 from Devil's Prop. And I started my weight loss effort at 211 pounds, close to your starting weight. I also love to garden and cook. And I love animals. My 24 year old son and I just completed South Beach Phase 1 a couple of weeks ago and we have been in phase two for a week. He lost 13 pounds in phase 1 and I lost 10. Since I started at Sparkpeople in May I have lost 23 pounds and he has lost 38. I like your white rose.
