Start Weight:(16 Oct 07) 192.0 lb
Current Weight:(22 Jan 09) 154.0 lb
Goal Weight:145.0 lb
following: Liz22's own diet
performance: losing 2.0 lb a week

Once I hit my mid 30's I became about 10 pounds above my ideal weight. Then I had two kids back to back when I hit forty and now I'm 45 pounds above my ideal weight. My life is full-I have a job I love, a supportive husband and two scrumptious daughters. Being overweight really makes me sad. I just don't feel like "me" any longer. I go along accepting this new larger person for awhile and then I'll get a wake up call like seeing a photo or trying to buy new clothes and I'm floored that I've let myself go like this. I desperately want to lose weight. I sabotage myself late in the afternoon when I get home from work. 5-7p.m. is a deadly time for me. I always end up snacking. Must get control of this. My daughter just snuck out of bed-gotta run!

DESPERATELY WANTING TO MAKE A CHANGE
Hello,

I have been so encouraged by reading all thsse posts the last two days. It's comforting to know that you're not alone on this journey. I had two kids back in back when I turned forty. I was already 20 pounds overweight and now I would say I'm about 50 pounds overweight. I am basically a really happy person. I have fulfillment in my job and I LOVE BEING A MOM. But this weight thing permeates every situation. I don't like getting dressed, I feel so embarassed when I bump into people I haven't seen in a long time and I want to be a great role model to my two young daughters. It feels futile at times..this losing weight thing. I think every single day for the last 5 years is the day I'm going to turn it all around. This site is very, very encouraging to me. It gives me hope. I wish you all well and much success in your journey.

Thanks.
Best,

Liz

Joined weight watchers for the very first time. Didn't think I'd like the group effort, but I was wrong. I guess I need it in a way I didn't realize. ...
