Hi. I am 26 years old and a mom of a 4 year old. Not only do I have my own child but I take care of 5 others in my home. Their ages range from 11m to 3years. It is very trying somedays but I get to stay home with my little man and get paid to do it.

I am currently in the process of losing weight. My goal is 180 and I started at 212. So far I've lost almost 11lbs on my own. My dear sister in law is now helping me with her diet and ball exercises. I am going to do 30-40 mins on the treadmil as well. I think I am doing pretty go for only being at it for 6weeks.

As the weather gets cooler up here I have decided to start with indoor activities so I don't find my self searching for something to do when the weather is yucky. At the end of the day I don't really feel like leaving the house and going out to do some anyways. So I turn on the TV and jump on the treadmil. WORKS GREAT!

Good luck to everyone and hope you all reach your goals!
I'm tired of being fat. Tired of feeling gross. Tired of being depressed. I WILL BE THINNER!

A week in...Low carb and no sugar
l read very conflicting post about diet soft drinks / soda as these are sugar and carb free why do some people say that they hinder weight loss? is it that you may retain the fluid ?

You can do it! I suggest eating food with barcodes to make it easier - Trader Joes and major grocery stores are awesome for this. Even staples like oatmeal can be scanned so you don't have to enter ...
