Hi Jill, welcome to the forum. I live in the US, but my husband is part Scottish and my dad's family is Irish. We also have 3 kids, but no grandchildren, our oldest is only 9. I'm 42, although I usually lie about my age ;). My back is fine, but I have a bum knee and shoulder, so rain never catches me by surprise, I can feel it coming for 2 days.

So how much do you have to lose? And what is your game plan to get there? I've found this site to be really liberating in terms of coming clean on my statistics. There are some really good threads you might want to look in to, depending on how much you want to lose and which diet/philosophy you are following.

Still need a buddy?
Our situations are similar. I have a herniated disk, just had an epidural a few weeks ago, can't really exercise. I'm married with two kids and weigh 277.2. Someone said they needed a buddy. Do you still need one? I need a buddy, too. 12-15-2010 03:08 AM

Me too!
I too am in need of a buddy. I joined tonight. 39yrs old, married, mother of 2 ages 16 and 9. I need to lose around 40lbs+. I am currently 5'7" and weight 196. :-( Hope to see you around!

Hi everyone, ditto to the buddy need. I am brand spankin' new. I just purchased the PC version of Fitday. I live in California, 30 years old, married, and I have a 10 year old son. Looking forward to hearing from someone. :)
