Single Mom Balancing Act

Hello, I’m a single mom with a wonderful 5yr old. I’m 4”10 and currently weighting 198. I have recently restarted my weight lose journey a few weeks ago. I have already lost 10lbs.

I say my biggest hurdle is in Incorporating my healthy life style into my day to day life. I would love to make friends who share the same passion for healthy living and weight loss. I love sharing thoughts, tips and tricks with others

    single mom of three here!! I lost about 70lbs about 4 1/2 years ago using MFP. Now, I have a 1 year old and I've gained soooooo much that it's ridiculous. I've been consistently doing MFP since Feb. Hoping to stay dedicated and get this weight off.

    I totally understand how difficult being a lone parent is, I am a single mum and have been for nearly 11 years, but it's worth the struggle. I have worked and studied, due to graduate this year (Yay!) and raised an incredible young man, but my own health has always taken a back seat and not been a priority....until now. We can do it!
