Need motivation and new friends!!

hello everyone. Need some new friends and some positive motivation. I am a mother of three and work from home as a cake decorator/maker. Looking to lose 40 pounds and inches. I am very active and love the gym, just need to get my eating back on track.

    Hi there! I need friends too!

    As for positive motivation, this quote helps me sometimes: "Being overweight is hard. Losing weight is hard. Choose your hard." Okay, it's a little corny I know but ... gets me through sometimes. :smile:

    Hey, welcome and hope you find this place motivating!!

    I have been on my new healthy lifestyle for about 6 weeks, and have already seen and felt some nice results. And being on here has been a boost. I have a couple "friend" that watch my every move, and I do the same for them. I have a FITBIT that links automatically to this site, as well as a WIFI scale. So, my technology monitors me too!!

    My EVERY DAY breakfast is chilled Swiss Oatmeal. They sell it at Corner Bakery, but usually I make my own. No cook, very healthy, and filled with my favorite fruit. Makes me want to get out of bed in the morning....... OK, not THAT good, but close.

    Anyway, best of luck!! I have 51+ to lose (still figuring out my final goal), but 24 down already!!
