I know women of all shapes and sizes are absolutely beautiful, I have been thin, fat, thick....you name it...other than skinny! I am now 25. I've had 2 beautiful children, one when I was 16 and one when I was 19, and I am at the heaviest I've been, and my youngest is going on 6. I can't make excuses for myself anymore! The problem isn't that I've had children or that I'm stressed, it's that I eat unhealthy (I mean I love healthy food too, I just dont stay away from junk) and that I haven't worked out regularly in years, since my daughter was about 2.



I'm 5'3, and somewhere between 200-210. I can't do this anymore, I don't feel myself anymore. Even considering going into public with friends or people I know in a bathing suit/water park/place where shorts are expected....I feel nauseous!



After I get a few hours of sleep, I'm going to go to the gym...I will weigh in, fix my eating habits, and start working out on a regular basis. I want to take control of my life back and feel comfortable in my own skin!



I will post pictures tomorrow! And I would love to have some people to do this with! To stay motivated! Take and post pictures, talk about bumps in the road and how we've finally lost a couple pounds!



I've been through a lot...and have never really work a bikini since I had my first son so young...I'm ready to feel sexy and confident, and healthy again. I hate getting so winded so easily! But it's because let's face it, I've let myself get fat!

Im right there with you! Im a little shorter and around 175-180. I love healthy food, but i love my snacks also. Ive come up with a home excercise plan because im at home all day and so has the car so i cant go to the gym. Ive always been on the heavy side but i really want to get healthy and live healthy so my son can learn and not have weight problems like me.

I'm not in the same spot as you, I got really depressed and let myself go. I am not fat, just put on more weight than I want and have huge body issues. I am starting to eat healthy, get motivated, put my life in perspective, and exercise again. So if you want to be buddies and motivate each, talk about weight loss, that would be great :)



I'll parenttank you message me if you want to :)

I just want to say I was in the same situation! I was 190 after I had my second, I have finally got down to 160, I still have 40 more to lose.
Im 5 3 as well.
You can do it! Just start out easy and slow at first! Don't overwhelm yourself!

Let's do this ladies! We can weigh in weekly and use this as a journal to post what we've eaten what we did wrong today what we are proud of...etc. :)

I would love to join!



I'm about 5'9 and I weight around 215. I haven't officially weighed myself in a long time. I'm too scared. I need to start eating healthy and working out. I am just so unmotivated.

I'm 5'4" and weigh between 230-240. I am an extremely picky eater and i hate most vegetables...I have to train myself to eat the foods I don't care for and stay away from fried foods! I would love to have a place to come talk about it, share pics, and have support on days when i fail (because I know it will happen, and probably more than once...)
