New Weight Loss Hopeful

DFaulk80DFaulk80 Posts: 11Member Posts: 11Member
Hello,
I'm a 26 year old wife and mother. My weight loss goal is to lose 32 lbs by Sept 1st 2008. I tried to lose weight before but never had any long term sucess. So far I've lost 2.5 lbs this month and very proud of myself. I love this website because it takes the guess work out of trying to figure everything out for myself. Hope to meet some interesting people on here.

    DFaulk80,

    Welcome, DFaulk80 ! Yes, isn't this the greatest thing since SLICED--(whole-wheat-organically-grown-no butter)---BREAD ?!

    Keep posting, we need your support and successes and even "cheats" and how you handled them. I am very grateful to everyone whose ideas I have incorporated into my plan. Your goal is SO do-able.

    Thanks I'm grateful to find this website. I think my goals for weight loss is doable as well. I can make progress without depriving myself Someone told me that I would reach my goal sooner than my goal date and others don't think I can stick to a diet for so long. Cheats are my biggest challenge and I struggle with it more when everyone is eating all the foods I love everyday at work. Today is my first day that I started bringing my salad in for lunch for the first time in a long time. It's also my first day that I incorporate strength training into my workout schedule during my lunch hour. So I'm going to see how that goes.
