HI BUGSMOM2: Your story seems familiar to me! I am a 47 year old mom with three children, ages 17, 13, and 7. I've been a member of this team for a while, though I find it not very active.
If you want, take a look at my page and some of the teams I'm on. Some of these may also work for you.
I'm in Illinois, where it is 20 degrees here today. I'm happy to be wearing my size 16 jeans today and they are a bit loose! Last year I could not even get into them. I'm hoping to retire all my size 18s soon!
Good luck to you.

hello everyone. The description of this group hit the nail on the head when it comes to me. I am just starting peri-menopause so I am definatly hormonal, my son is 16 and I am coming ever closer to being an emptinester and I am on the downhill slide to 50. I have already dropped 40 pounds since July and have gone from a size 22 to a size 16 but over the holidays I have put about 8 pounds back on and am in danger of going into an 18 again if I am not careful but I need motivation. Anyone else in my boat? I live in SC but would love to chat with anyone who understands.
