Welcome to this team! I just joined a week or so ago because I was so frustrated by how much my weight loss had slowed down. There are wonderful supportive members on this team that can give you as much advice and cheerleading as you want. I can certainly sympathize with how hard it is to eat right and exercise with time constraints--I have 3 kids (4 if you count DH, lol!) and work full time. Feel free to shoot me a note any time you feel like venting!
Hi, Anita. I like your "ish" on the end of your weight. Some days we're a pound or so more so "ish" does apply. I don't often post because, like so many of us, I'm pretty busy, though I'm retired. Also, there is so much to do on this site that something has to give. I'm losing a pound and a half about every 10 days. That's slow but it's better than 10 days going by and losing nothing.

I found this board featured in one of the daily blogs and it sounded right up my alley. I've been trying for the past 3 years to lose the weight I gained while I was pregnant. My highest weight while pregnant was 225 lbs. and I'm now at 176-ish. I have a good 41-ish pounds to go to my goal weight. The lowest I've been since having my daughter is 172 lbs. But I gained 11 lbs of that through the transition of going from one job to another and then I've lost 7 lbs. in 4 months.
I'm hoping that I can quicken the pace to a normal pace, but I need support in getting there.
I'm a mom of 1 DD and I work full time and I'm the primary parent for my DD so I have a lot of responsibilities and not so much time.
I look forward to interacting with you all.
