Hi Everyone! I'm new to this site...
MandyIsReady--I LOVE your screen name!! That is how I feel too.
Like all of you, I want to loose 100lbs...and like all of you, I'm going to!
Weight has been an issue for me since I was 19-20, before then I always played competitive sports (high school, aau, college)...then, when those stopped my weight gain started. Add in 2 kids, a job where I sit at a desk all day, and a 6'4" 185 lbs boyfriend that can eat whatever he wants....and you get an extra 100 lbs to carry around.
I've tried weight watchers, Atkins, south beach and more....all with quick results (20-30 lbs) that didn't stick. But, this time is different. No diet, just a total life overhaul. My boyfriend is on board too (although his goals are to gain weight and muscle). We did a dump day and cleaned all the junk food out of our house (much to the dismay of our 3 year old). Now it's about eating healthy and exercise.
I'm glad I found this group and look foward to keeping in touch with you ladies and seeing us all meet our goals!!
PS Do many of you have FB?? That is more chatty than this...I saw someone else mention wishing there was a better forum. I'd be more than happy to create a private group for us. Let me know!!
