My name is Laurie, and it looks like we are in the same boat! I am at 170, but i was 172 at the doctor's office, and I would love to get down to 140. I've been putting this off for too long, and i was actually surprised at this weight gain. Looking foward to see how you do with this, and i will try hard to make progress too! hang tough girl, I see lost pounds in our future!
