Hi KelsWife :) I had my kids at 30 and it's been a nightmare rollercoaster with the weight ever since. My mom always used to tell me that it was harder to lose the older you got. She was right, of course.. lol. I agree with BBD5 about the dedication and support. If you really want to do it, you can do it. I've benefited so much from being a part of an active, supportive group like Low Carb Daily Check In. Hope you'll join us there :) Good luck to you!
