Hello I am NEW

I have tried to lose weight for the past 13 months..thats how old my daughter is.. I gained 60lbs with my pregnacy and 13 months later I still can't lose the weight. I was diagnosed with a heart problem when I was pregnant. My condition has become very serious for me and now I am just @ the point where I want to lose weight to stay healthy. My main problem is staying motivated.. I lose motivation very easy.


  • Welcome, I am sorry about the heart condition. This is a great motivator. I just started a few days ago and I love it. I hope it helps you!
  • Congrats on being a mommy! I'm new as well. Been on MFP for about 4 days and I love it! all the support is amazeing! Really helps alot. I'm a mother as well and I'm looking to loose 100 lbs. I'm here if you need a friend! Good luck! You'll do great!:smile:

    Just start by focusing on a day at a time. Small victories are just as good and reaching larger goals.
