Welcome Amy! Glad you joined the Northwest AR Team! SP is the best place to get support and to help you stay focused. We are all here trying to acheive the same thing! It is great to get support and encouragement from others going thru the same thing....always remember "you are not alone." I do my best to get 10,000 steps a day. I don't always hit that mark but that is my goal. I wear a pedometer and that helps me know how I am doing and keeps me staying more active. Welcome to our team and start posting!!!

Welcome Amy! I know exactally what your talking about on the being good during the day and at night blowing it... I've progressed in the last 4 months that I've really buckled down... now I only have a hard time on weekends - nights are under control during the week. I even choose the healthiest things at restaurants now when/if I eat out... that's really difficult too. Since I'm following weight watchers, I look up the points at the restaurant we're going to and find what the best choice is for me and if I know I'll be short for dinner, I workout at the gym to "earn" extra activity points so I can have a decent dinner that night... some days this is easier than others.

I'm also trying to sneak in extra walking time. Since dh & I are carpooling now, my boys & I walk while we're waiting for him to get off work which is about 30 minutes (if the weather is nice) but since it's not a steady and sure thing and just count it as a bonus.

Good luck & let us know if you need any help!

Hi! My name is Amy and I live in Fayetteville. I have been married for 5 years and my husband and I have two beautiful baby boys ages 2 and 4. My family is my world and I want to lose weight not only for myself but for my children as well. I don't want my children to lose their mother at a young age because I couldn't put down a plate of food. I have been over weight since I went to college. I was an athlete in high school but I now weigh more than double what I weighed back then. I struggle daily with my food choices. I find that I do well during the day while at work but when I get home I blow all my hard work with overeating at dinner and excessive snacking. Anyway that is me in a nutshell. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you. Any tips and advise are more than welcome. Have a great day!

Amy
