Happy and healthy mother to 2 very beautiful baby girls. Looking to stay motivated tp continue to lose weight and maintain the weight loss. I never had a weight promblem.....usually only 5 to 10 lbs at the most in highschool from where the weight chart said I should be and bedside the amount of weight gained during pregnancy nearly doubled me in size.. I am afraid of gaining weight as I get older.... Almost the BIG 30...I try to stay active on most days of the week wirh Zumba, or an hour at the gym when I can but my little babies keep me a busy mommy.I know how important staying healthy is - for both my daughters .

I want to challenge the theory calories in VS. calories out. At the end of the day is it all matter of calories consumed ( In vs. out ) that matters with weight loss?? After all a calorie itself is just a unit of energy . I am fully aware of the importance of eatting healthy for not only weight management, health, lower risk for disease, ect.. but I would like to know if people have or think for that matter that when trying to lose weight you can have ice cream daily or any dessert -as long as you keep your overall calories in check . Look at weight watchers programs -Eat what you want ( Yes-they encourage healthy choices ) but foods are worth a point value and you only have so many points. I have noticed people lose weight on that program. WOULD LOVE to hear from fellow dieters on there theory. And agian I am not talking about the importance of healthy eatting for general health and feeling good but just the overall theory calories in Vs. Calories out. Thanks Everyone !!Razz

I will be following my own diet plan which includes eatting healthy, smaller portions, more water and exercise. I could use any help, support, advice or tips. Thanks.

Looking for some Buddies in Virginia
Hello, I would be more than happy to join a team with you or be a co-buddy through a weight loss program. I just gave birth to a wonderful baby girl this summer and I am looking to shed these extra baby pounds. I am nearly at my 6 week point after delivery and my doctor has allowed me to resume regular activity. I could use any tips, advice on losing weight after baby. I gained over 50 lbs during this pregnancy and I want to say goodbye once and for all to it. Smile
