happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.
almost anything in life is easier to get into than out of.

Hi Michelle, I feel your pain. I am 31 and have three little monsters (ages 3, 6, and 8) and now I'm 60 pounds heavier than I was before pregnancy #1. I work on a very part time basis right now so I am home a lot with a TON of opportunity to sit around and snack. My ultimate goal is somewhere between 120 and 140 (a dress size 6/8). I am starting out this time around (this isn't my first rodeo with SP) lighter than last time at 227. Let me know if you'd like to spark a friendship and tackle this tango with a healthier lifestyle together. ~ Stephanie

Don't focus on what other's are doing, you don't have to live with their results.
Each second, each minute, each hour, each day, each week, each month, and each year all bring a fresh start. Which moment will you tell yourself it's okay start from Step 1?

Hi, I'm 29 years old and have a 2 year old daughter. I put on a lot of weight while I was pregnant and started to lose after. But I quit my job to stay home with her and gained it all back and then some. I want to be back to where I was before I got pregnant or at least close to it. I am 199 lbs now, and I can't believe it. My ultimate goal is 129, and I'd love to have someone to talk to while I try to make it there. Michelle
