Hi -

I think you should start while your mother-in-law is here to at least try some new recipes. I was thinking I would wait to start until my kids start school in 2 weeks but decided to partially start meaning I am not exercising much but I am trying some of the meal planning from this website. I just got back from vacation and gained 8 lbs!!! Incentive! I stepped on the scale today after starting Monday and have lost 5.5 lbs this week. I am not even going full force so that at least puts me 5.5 lbs ahead of where I will be when I really start. OK that is if I can keep them off for the next week and a half. Anyway - go for it but don't get upset if you don't lose much. If you are at least experimenting with some new healthy recipes when you have time, you will most likely stop yourself from gaining while she is here and maybe even lose a little! Good luck!

Not because she isn't wonderful.....but because we cook with a lot of butter and meat when she is here. But then again....she is here to watch my toddlers so I can experiment in the kitchen and get out and exercise.....OK so here goes.

Greetings from the NY/VT border. I am a mother of a 3 year old girl and a 1 year old boy, and am a school counselor. This is my first support group for weight loss. I was successful with Atkins and South Beach type diets in the past, but before I had children I managed my weight relatively well. Relatively meaning I was a size 10 happily and a 12 when I wasn't watching very carefully. I am tall, my husband is 6'7" and we lived in Savannah Georgia for awhile, where the food and social life is great. Now we are in rural New York and we both work in Vermont. I am finding I no longer have time for yoga or my daily walks and the expectations for healthy living are higher here. No one cooks with sour cream and most people pride themselves on their healthy lifestyle.

As my youngest is starting to talk I am thinking I can't say "I just had a baby" anymore.

Here we go..... emoticon
