welcome... I'm like you I was a nice size years ago... I had my first child and right back to a size 7-8 loved it! Had my 2nd and I actually thought I wasn't gaining enough weight with her! After she was born though, I started piling it on! Size 16 some 18s!! OUCH! This past jan. I decided it was coming off... 1st thing I did was start a cardio exercise program just 30 minutes.. then I stopped all sodas and little debbies! I lost 9 pounds just doing that! then I found this site! USE THE NUTRTION TRACKER! It will help put food in it's right perspective! And try and stay focused and positive! And the best motivator tip I found on here is " If you fall off the wagon... It's ok just get back on ...You are still doing better than you were before!" I can't tell you how much that helps me when I'd stumble! Good luck and I wish you the best! mary

Hi and welcome to the team. Start using the nutrition tracker to see where you can make changes. Drink the 8 glasses of water. If you don't like to exercise, just try walking 10 min a day and try to increase it slowly. Keep posting or reading message boards. This is a great site for motivation.
I seen this sight today & decide to sign up. I'm going to finally face up to my weight gain. I'm VERY much aware of the weight gain. I want to lose it, but not always fully motivated. I moved down south 2years ago a size 6 some 8's. Which for my height was perfect! I swear one day I woke up & was a size 10/12. And it only got worse. I am even larger now. Even when I was pregnant I have NEVER been this big. Yeah, I'm tall, but I don't like it. It's messing w/ my confidence. I already don't go out --clubs, won't apply for certain jobs, vac/trips. I go outside for regular things I just don't have fun out..when I say I don't go out. Any help would be appreciated..even if I don't like it. I probably need to hear it. Thanx for your time shizz
