    Hi Julie,
    I would love the opportunity to be your friend/cheerleader! It will be so exciting to share in your success! I am here for the long haul, not just until I get my weight down to my target. Like Craig said, this site is different and I am so happy that I found it!

    I will send a friend request.

    Blessings and hugs,

    oh, and take plenty of before pictures, you will want them when you reach your goal :D

    This x 1000. I don't have any pictures of my at my heaviest, and I regret it every single time I post comparison pictures or have a bad day and want to see how far I've come. I didn't take my first "before" picture until I'd lost 15 pounds.

    I started at 357. I weighed around 342-ish in the left side of my profile pic, and the right side of my profile pic was taken a few weeks ago when I weighed 312.

    I also (mostly) stay at home with two little ones and am nursing my son. I currently work 8 hours a week. I just started the Turbo Fire prep program again, I finished it back in September, but 2 weeks into the regular schedule my supply tanked so I had to take a break. Feel free to add me!

    I definitely remember the sitting and nursing a lot, but I also remember a lot of walking around the house and yard, patting baby on the back and bouncing slightly (great workout for the arms), trying to soothe crying babies.

    my name is Sheila and I started at 359. I've lost the first 100 and am now dealing with the next 75 or so. It's not easy, don't let anyone tell you it is.

    And, yes, take pictures. I don't have any of me at my worst except for 1.

    Feel free to add me, anyone!
