I'm new here too, loving the website and all the diets, recipes and stuff. I'm hoping to lose at least 20lbs until my birthday on oct 29th, which is why I'm starting this challenge in particular. I've been overweight all my life, and am SICK AND TIRED of it! so I'm ready to dust off my trainers and get jogging! Smile

Hi! I am in the same boat with both of you as well! I just had my son 10 days ago and I intend to lose the 20 pounds I have left to go by my birthday on October 27th! Before having my son it was already challenging to keep my weight down. I am very nervous that I will not be able to do it now that I have a kid. I am very nervous! I wish you both the best of luck!

Hey, thanks for the replies girls. I've lost 2.5lbs so far (started dieting + exercising last week), but it's been so hard. I feel anxious all the time. How's it going for you two? (I'm gonna add you both on here if you don't mind). Good luck to all of us!
