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!

I need help with dieting
Probably lowering your calories by at least 500 a day and eating clean is your best bet.

sticking to a plan
I think and am living this. You need to a WOR plan that fits your life and exercise that also fits your life. If it doesn't fit your life you won't stick with it.
