Hello Everyone,

I'm a very proud Marine wife! My husband has been in the Corps for 9 years, married for 6 years (on Saturday). He was Commissioned last month, so we'll be moving onto VA for TBS. Looking forward to losing the baby weight from both boys! (2 and 4 years) I would like to have a baby girl, but want to lose 20 to 30 lbs before I get pregnant! I love being around military spouses. If you someone to encourage you or support you, I'm great at that!! Good luck to everyone on your journey!! I look forward to getting to know you all!

Hi everyone, I am a proud Army girlfriend!!! My love is deploying to the middle east next year and it will be our first deployment together. Alot has happened in the past year in both of our lives, but one thing solid is our love for each other. We met online on a Catholic dating website, and luckily live close enough to see each other almost every week or two.

My love is a NCO, and I couldn't be prouder. Going for his combat promotion e6 while he is deployed. He's an excellent NCO, and excellent at his MOS, which makes him very happy. I am both looking forward to this deployment and dreading it. While he is gone I will begin and finish Nursing School, and it's our first deployment. I do not know what to expect. I am nervous because I don't know what it will be like.

Both of us are working on losing weight and getting super sexy for each other, so when he comes home, it'll be a great surprise for us both. Hoping to meet some friends with advice and support and who have similar goals to get through this next 18-24mos together. (His MOS is one where there are very few NCOs, and they deploy every 14 months or so, and stay deployed for 18-24months. :( but I love him, I'd never change him for anyone else!)

Hope to hear from you all soon!!!!

Kim :)

Hi I am Karin and I am in Michigan. My boyfriend/domestic partner is retired AF and now works for the DOD/army. He is currently deployed to Afghanistan. This is my first deployment. He left me with good company...our cats Caine and Abel!! I am working real hard and curbing my emotional eating tendencies and am doing pretty well with it. Right now my focus is on my exercise routine. I lack motivation in this department!!!

Hi everyone, I am Lisa. I am 35 a single mom of 3 daughters. I was married 10 years divorced 6. I am new to the military deployment. I started seeing a wonderful many early this year who is currently in Iraq until late October. He is a national guardsman but currently working private contract in Iraq. I never thought I would be in this position but I am now proud of the wonderful person I met. I am wanting to work on losing weight and looking my best when he returns. I look forward to getting to know all of you, and any tips or ideas are always welcome.

Hi, all. My boyfriend is a medically retired Marine (injured in Iraq in 2004), so I don't have to deal with deployments, just his occasional aches and pains! Still, keeping up with him is a challenge in and of itself, and I can use all the help available. :)

Hello Everyone! My fiance is in the National Guard, and is leaving for 16 weeks (Basic Training and AIT) at the end of this month. I'm going to try and lose 20 pounds during the 4 months he's gone. And then another 10 before our wedding. I'm glad there is a support group on here!

Hi everyone! My name is Roxanne and I am currently engaged to a National Gaurd Soldier. We have successfuly made it through a deployment. He returned from Iraq last August and since then we have done lots of celebrating. With that celebrating I gained a few pounds that I'd like to lose. I could use help on the motivation and I'd love to help others know what to expect on a deployment. Our troops need support but so do their significant others!

Hi I'm Brooke and I'm 24 years old. I hope I did this right. I met my b/f on a BBW dating website. He is based in Kuwait and schld to come home near the end of Oct. We've been dating for about 3 months ONLINE. I know nothing about being an army g/f. I have friends n the Marines and Army, but I never really talk about their jobs with them. At this point I'm completely frustrated and a tiny paranoid...Okay a lot paranoid. He loves me just the way I look (he is one of those guys), but being as this is one of my first stable relationships I don't know how to act and being that we only talk online I don't know how to deal. I thought I would join this team to help me better understand. I hope I can learn a few things about being an army g/f.

Thanks

Hola todos! I am an ad army girl through and through (born, raised and dating). The man of my dreams has about 5 months left on his deployment. I am so excited to be seeing him again. He likes me the way that I am, but I want to lose about 80 pounds to make traveling more comfortable since we plan on taking a trip on his leave when he gets back.

I thought it might be a good idea to reach out to some people that understand the position that I am in. Often times us ad service gfs and bfs get over looked. I think it is harder to be the girlfriend because often times we have no point of contact and we don't get to use the many support services that are out there for the spouses.

So this is me saying , Hi: and reaching out hoping to make some supportive friends. Most of my real life friends have never had to battle with weight so though they empathize with me, they don't understand what I am going through. Any ideas on how to get out of the emotional eating?

What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it's all about?

Hi everyone! I am dating a guy who is in green beret training ... we have to go months at a time with no communication. We live in different states so we don't get to see each other very much; reading everyones' posts makes me miss him even more. He is doing so much PT right now that I want to surprise him when he comes home by having a really nice stomach and also being very fit :-) I want to lose about 7 lbs. and start training for a marathon. If anyone wants to be a workout buddy/motivation buddy, let me know.

I'm Joy, a 24-year-old Marine girlfriend. I don't get to see him as much as I'd like, and he's being deployed to Iraq in the spring. I eat when I'm emotional, so I know I need to lose my extra weight (10 pounds) now, before he leaves so I have an easier time maintaining it while he's gone.

Hey everyone!

My name is Mara and I am not only an Army Girlfriend, but a service member myself.
Just not in the US military :)
I am 28, November will have me face the number 29, and am stationed with the German Airforce in Belgium.

After I joined the Airforce I had to get nose surgeries and the steroids blew me up by about 45 pounds in 6 weeks... bummer.
I had lost about 30 pounds last year, but with drama all over the place, work and school I gained almost 20 back again :(
So here is to getting rid of that weight and then heading for the weight I had when I joined! emoticon

Hi everyone! My name is Lauren, I'm 20 years old, and I'm engaged to an Army man currently stationed in Baghdad, Iraq. I've always been a little heavier than all of my friends and in many ways that has effected my self-esteem. I've already lost like 11 lbs but I don't feel like I'm doing enough or working hard enough. I plan on losing at least 20 lbs before Jeff gets back for R&R, and then a total of 40 before he gets back for good. We will see how that goes though. I hope to talk to you all soon and get the chance to ask you advice and vice versa!

Short term goal: 20 lbs
Long term goal: 40 lbs

Physical Goals:
Run = 2 miles in 18:00
Push-ups = 25 in 2 min.
Sit-ups = 70 in 2 min.

Hey everyone. My name is Iz, I'm 23 years old. I'm married to an amazing man in the US Navy. I have struggled with my weight all of my life and since I got married about two years ago I have put on over 70lbs, which I am not okay with. I am trying to get back on track - today was my first day going to the gym. I tend to lose my motivation and am hoping to find people here that can help keep me motivated. If anyone is located in the Bremerton/Silverdale area and would like a work out buddy please feel free to contact me.
Thank you~Iz~

Hi I'm Julie, married to AD army soldier. I have just gone thru my first PCS after being seperated from dh for a year while he was in Korea. We are currently living at Ft Campbell. We are from Upstate NY. We have two kids, Lucas 5 1/2 and Alyssa 2 1/2. This is a big change for me and I have gained 15 pounds since leaving home in January. I am facing my first deployment this fall and want to get my lifestyle in check along with my eating habits. Hope to get to know you all better.

Hi everyone!! I'm catharine! I am married to Green Beret (he's on reserve now though) and we're about three montsh away from our first wedding anniverary. I would like to see some progress from now until then, but my main concern is when we go visit his parents in Lebanon. We're both from cultrues that have no issues walking up to you and saying "my God, you're fat" but I don't particularly enjoy hearing it. I want to be fit so that I can go on runs with my husband, bellydance without having more belly than dance, and get my body ready for trying to have a baby. My doctor said that if we want to start trying to conceive I should lose weight to help regualte Aunt Flo's visits. I joined SP yesterday, long journey ahead, but I'm in for th long haul!!

Hey, I'm Deneane, Army wife, and my husbands deployed right now. Before, I had no motivation to lose weight or eat right but 2 months ago I quit smoking. With giving up that, not wanting to pack on even more weight and wanting to get pregnant, I figured it was time for a lifestyle change.

I feel pretty good about my decision, now if I can just make it stick! I'm more of a fun kind of workout person, like walking the dogs or working in the yard.

Hello everyone. I'm Ashley and I'm a navy girlfriend. My boyfriend is currently deployed and this is our first deployment. It was really hard at first and now things are starting to smoothe out, at least on my end of things. There are still some rough days occassionally. I'm trying to lose 50lbs before my boyfriend comes back.

Hello, My name is Kari. I am an Air Force wife and I was an Air Force brat also. I have been married to my man since august of 1999. I have put on alot of weight over the years. My husband has been in Korea since Nov 06 and is not due back until Jan 08. I havea three year old son. I want to have another baby but I am going to wait until we have moved to the next duty station and settled down (so in two years) plus I had some probolems because of weight when I was pregnant the first time. It is amazing how you can pack on 80lbs when you are pregnant. We have follow on orders to Eielson AFB, AK. I will be heading up there once my house sells here in wyoming. Well that is me in a nut shell. Kari

Hiya!!! I'm Kelly. I am the 21 year old wife of an aircrewman in the USNavy. We have been married for a year and a half and we had our first child in january. He's been the navy for three years, but I am used to this lifestyle because both of my parents retired out of the Navy. Currently we are stationed at Tinker AFB in Oklahoma. I'm still trying to get used to it, even though we have lived here for two years. It just can't compare to Florida where I am from. My goal is to lose the weight I gained when I was pregnant by the time it is warm enough to wear a bathing suit.

Hi everyone!

My name is Michelle aka Shelly, and I am a 27 year old from Kansas. My boyfriend and I have been together for 2.5 years and he will be deploying in May when I graduate. We hope to get married before that, but who knows what will happen in the crazy Army world, right?

I'm glad this group was here. I help moderate a group on livejournal for military girlfriends/significant others and it is nice to be around others in my particuliar walk of life.

There is no set date I want to lose the weight (40 pounds) by, but I would like to look in the mirror and see the same face I grew up with.

Hello!! I am a 22 year old from Kansas. Both my boyfriend/unofficial fiance are wanting to join the Army. He wanting to go active duty in Special Forces and make a career out of it. I on the other hand, want to serve for 2 years active duty to start off with and if I like it then I will renlist for more years. I need to loose about 45-50 pounds before I will be in the correct weight bracket, but I would like to loose closer to 55-60 pounds for my own satisfaction.
I am currently a college student with only this semester and the summer to go. Then I will have my Bachelor's Degree in General Studies with an area of concentration in Business. I will also have my Leadership Certificate.
My biggest problem with trying to loose weight is finding the time to put the effort into it. Sometimes it is so much easier to just go grab something to eat than it is to fix it. My boyfriend and I live together, and we try to encourage each other as much as possible.
Well I have probably said enough for now, but if you have any questions or anything feel free to ask. Hope everyone has a great day.
Oh, I almost forgot, as part of one of the classes I am in, a leadership class, my group and I were to create a project and carry it out. So we are branching off of the S.O.S and raising money. I am so psyched about this project. It is something that I am really passionate about. Even if you don't support the war, our troops are still over there protecting our freedom.

Hi I'm Jen. I have four wonderful kids, 3 girls 1 boy, ages 2,4,6 &8. My dh and I have been married for 11 years next month. He joined the Army when I was pregnant with number 3(our son), just after 9/11. After our first two I didn't have so much trouble getting the weight off, or at least most of it. Since our daughter was born, (post Iraq deployment), not only have I not gotten down to where I was, but I am almost back to what I was when I gave birth. (206)

Hello everyone! My name is Julie. I have been part of the group for awhile now, but I haven't been able to log on and intorduce myself for awhile.

My husband and I are dual military. I am active duty and he is in the National Guard. I am currently in Iraq and would like to lose 30 pounds by the time I leave here. The only problem that I am running into is that I have lost control of what I eat because of the fattening foods they serve in the chow hall versus the healthy alternatives that I make at home. I need to come up with a plan on how to lose weight with the food that is available for me.

Hi, I'm Nicole and my hubby is in the USMC. We just got married back in June, and he is currently in Cali training for Iraq. He comes home saturday. He will be deploying in mid February for 7 months. Over the summer I packed on 20lbs from eating out and eating late, so I'm trying to get a jump on this weight loss now, which hasn't been easy with 3 kids and their schedules. My goal is to get down to 140lbs by the time he gets back from Iraq...I just wanna look HOT for him, lol!!!

Wow Tiffany! I don't like your so-called "friends". Telling you to dump a guy just because he's serving his country and doing what's right... grr. I don't care if he's half-way across town or half-way around the world, he is still the man you love and they need to understand that. Would your "friends" say the same thing if he went to Africa with the Peace Corps for a year? What if his job moved him across the country?

Good for you for sticking by your man. There needs to be more military significant others like you!

Hi! I'm Tiffany I'm 25 and from Nebraska. My boyfriend of about 2 years is full-time National Guard and currently deployed in Iraq. He should be home around September 2007. I would like to have all the weight gone by then (30 to 40lbs). The weight loss thing is kind new and hard for me untill about 3 years ago weight was never an issue for me. I didn't realize how much weight I had put on until I saw myself in pictures from Christmas last year. I knew I wa getting bigger just didn't think it showed even though my clothes quit fitting (ha ha don't you love that rational). Anyway my boyfriend has never seen me skinny or without what I call my female version of the beer gut. I thought it would be a great gift to both of us when he gets home!

I was so excited to find this group most of you are around my age and in the same situation. Sometimes you just need someone to talk to and none of my friends have signifcant others in the military. So they don't get what I'm going through in fact most of them told me it would be best if we were not together while he was gone or that I date other people. So to say the least they don't understand. They support the military just not me dating someone whom is deployed. I've learned real quick who my true friends are. (Wow that was long sorry I'm a talker)

Support our Troops

Hi, I'm Arley, I'm 23, and I'm married to a soldier. I'm a solider too, but I'm just a reservist. I love my job and it's the biggest motivator to lose weight.

What is everyone doing to lose weight?

Hey, Im Jessy! I joined this site because I want to loose about 65 pounds. One reason I want to loose the weight is because Ive always been big. I dont like the way I look and I dont feel like I have enough energy to do the things I want to do. I am currently planning my wedding. Robert will be home in Feb and we will be doing a quick JP wedding, then in October(we hope)when he gets home from Iraq, we will be having the big wedding. I found the most beautiful dress and well.. with my size, it probably wont look that great! I suck at dieting and dont have the much time for exercise(aka Im lazy!!!! lol) Anyways... nice to meet you!

My name is Michelle, but everyone calls me Chell. I am an Army fiancee. My fiancee will be deploying very soon and my goal is to lose the weight I want by the time he comes home next year. I gained a lot of weight when I was pregnant with our son and I just never lost the weight after he was born. I don't really know what else to say.
