Hello everyone

Hi there! I'm Allie, 29 year old SAHM to three kiddos, ages 10, 8, and 3. I've been battling my weight most of my life, especially since the birth of my youngest, and recently found out that my thyroid is partially to blame. I'm awaiting my appointment with the endocrinologist, and until then am busy increasing my exercise routines, changing some of my dietary habits (thankfully, I usually eat pretty healthy choices anyway, so this is not as much of an adjustment), and working hard to start losing what I can on my own. I've always found that it helps to get the support of others, and to support others as well in their journey, to make it through the hurdles along the way. I look forward to making this journey with you all!

    Hi Allie, my name is sheila and I am 38 and I have four children 20, 18, 16, 8 I weigh 317 pound and I have a lot of health issues myself like, a thyroid, Lupus, fybromyagia, sleep apnea, narcalepsy, borderline diabetic, a vitaman d and a growth hormone defficency so I have a very big battle to lose weight. I have been going to the gym everyday at least 3 hours a day I have finally increased my cardo to 60 minutes and then I do the toneing along with the water areobics I don't work so I can spend a lot of time at the gym so I do.. I need to prove to the dr's that I can do this without the surgery.. Just stay positive and do your best I really feel that this site is very helpful and encouraging at the same time. nice to meet you hope to chat more
