I'm a 30 year old housewife. My son is my reason for being, hands down. I was on total best rest during my pregnancy to save my son's and my life. After delivery I had close to zero energy for about 6 months. Now nearly 3 years later I figure it's time to lose that baby weight! BTW I'm coming from the biggest loser club which I started on Jan 24th at 191 lbs, today is Feb 18th and I've lost 11 lbs to be a glorious 180! Looking forward to being a fabulous 150 again (I'm 5'10" so 150 is normal ...

I just want the outside to match the inside. I'm the hottest chubby chick around but I don't think the world at large is convinced.
cutting out soda coffee and fastfood. Drinking as much water as I can. Eating breakfast. Working up a sweat for at least an hour a day. Making an effort to get in as much movement as I can.
I'm Iannessa more commonly known as Ness. I live in Portland Oregon. If you want my email address please ask me.
I'm not a wussy. I do well with brutal honesty because I appreciate it. I need butt kicking rather than mollycoddling. No, it's ok when I get off track, no, it's not ok when I make excuses but I probably will. I need tough buddies to make this tough challenge a success. You in?

Hi Ness, Im Jen. I have attempted several times to reach my target goals, but for some reason i get 3-4 weeks in and then lose interest. so this time i'm cruising for friendly like minded, people to keep me honest and accountable, and to provide some motivation!! I used to live in portland, but Im back in Dublin, Ireland now and I miss Oregon. so I've joined the oregon and portland groups to have some little tie to my soul city! That's it.. feel free to write and let me know how you're doing and i'll do the same. J
I have a similar story. I was placed on bed rest at 5 months gestation. I started going into pre-term labor at 4 and a half months. It was really a scary time for me. This was my first baby. I didn't want to lose it. I had been trying to get pregnant for several years with no luck. I was told I would probably never have children due to some hormonal deficiencies and such. I was heavy to start with, however I had just lost 40+ lbs on the Jenny Craig program and was doing well when I got pregnant. I did well as far as gaining while pregnant (total of 25lbs) but it wasn't until after that I gained like it was no tomorrow. Before I knew it, I gained 65...UGH! now, I haven't the foggiest Idea on how to stay motivated. I am a stay at home mom who has nothing but time on her hands and yet, I can never find enough of it just for me.... so how am I supposed to stay on track??? Yikes!!! I even just sent in my application video to The Biggest Loser for season 6. Hope I get it. It will definitively give me the jump start that I need. Unfortunately, I am one who gives up when i don't see results. Terrible, I know. I am happy for you, and I hope you reach your goal. I live in the SE area too, maybe we can all get together once the sun comes out to play. I live really close to Mt. Scott Community center if anyone is interested in taking some water aerobics classes with me... Let me know!!! Good Luck, I'm rootin' for you. ;-) Malisa (ma-lee-sa)
Thanks for the post. I never thought meeting decent women at my age would be such a difficult task. It's almost like dating... I certainly don't want to start trolling bars for friends! lol. We seem to have enough in common, including our health goals, so maybe we can help each other out. I'm also hoping once spring hits, the Portland group will start meeting for walks and hikes. We've been talking about it and a few people seem interested. Anyway, nice to meet you!
