Hi everyone. I'm in for the motivation.  I've got a full 90lbs (oops make that 88lbs) to get rid of.  I'm in Arizona.  I might not get on every day... but should make it around to the group every few days or so.

Hey, do a couple of Altoids Smalls count as junk food? I'm going to say no unless I crunched throught the whole tin full.  So... No junk food on Monday.

Hi all! my name is farhaanah an I'm from South Africa. ever since I moved in with my boyfriend last year july, i've picked up about 20lbs!!! I started going to gym last year and i have seen a slight improvement in my body tone, however, shedding the pounds is still so hard.

i have started a new eating plan and exercise routine this year but since I am still such an amateur at this living healthy stuff, I could really do with a few pointers.

I wanted to keep my eating plan realistic.... please let me know if i should make any changes to it.... you are also more than welcome to use this plan for yourself

Looking for a motivation partner or better a group of motivated girls to chat with daily. I tink it may be easier to tell someone how Im doing if I know they are doing it with me (from a far). Where is everyone from - Im in Ottawa, Canada.

---

I just joined tho and I'm not sure how it works but I think I'm in the right group and I definitely need help doing this!!

Hi!  Im Shay.  Just moved to Ohio.  I have a 1 year old son, and I have yet to lose all my baby weight! (AHHHHHH)  I am 30lbs heavier than my pre pregnancy weight, so that is my first goal.  From their I want to lose an additional 70ish lbs.  I have a pretty big goal for myself I think, but I am determined to do this.  My husband use to be 300 +lbs, and in 6 months he lost 60lbs so I need to kick it into gear and get myself going.  I deff need support, and I think this will be great to find friends on here taht have similar goals so we can all support eachother!  I am excited to do this, and I WILL!  I guess I don't really know "how" to go about this, but I think the partner idea is awesome :-)

Hi girls. Have just come across this site and it looks like the sort of thing I've been looking for. Mind if I join you?. I'm a 27 year old Mother of two (toddlers) from Australia. I miss the wonderful feeling of being fit and healthy. Kate, what you speak of above is precisely true in my life. You can start eating right at 4pm in the afternoon, despite a shocking morning, right?

Hi :) I'm Brit. And I kind of crashed the group :) But I'm excited! You guys are making me more excited. I'm in Alabama (and yah, I have a bit of that accent that everyone is afraid of...) at University, trying to shape up. I am pleased that I can now (after about two weeks) walk up three flights of stairs without being completely winded; that's my good luck so far. My goal, though, is 41 pounds by no later than July.

I could use as many motivation partners as I can get. I am 31, 5' 7", and 203 pounds. I am from the New Orleans area. I lost about 87 pounds over the past couple of years and have about 45 more to go before I will be satisfied. I am tired of being the fat chick. I want more for myself and my family. I am also having my tubes reversed, this summer hopefully, and have to have a BMI of 27 before they will do they procedure. I am currently at like 30/31. But I have so little will power. I watched a commercial earlier where a guy was talking about gyms and trainers being so expensive so he hired the mean girls from the local high school to follow him around and insult him and his eating habits and actually thought that that sounded like a great idea and actually tried to think of a way to hire my own mean girls. It was sad, really. It is nice to meet all of you and I hope that the support will kick me in the butt.

Hi,
have just joined too so am kinda gate-crashing if ok!
Single mum of an 8 y/o son and i work about 40hours a week, in the UK,  so trying to fit in exercising and working out that doesn't take the little time i have with my son away from him can be very hard!

Motivation to get it done while he is in bed is sometimes hard to find!
