I am 31 years old and I have one daughter. I gained 70 lbs while pregnant with her but was able to lose most of it. Unfortunately I had a tumor removed and then massive infection and other complications from the surgery. The docs put me on pain meds that made me feel tired and caused weight gain and then I got depressed because of a death in my family. I am finally coming off all my medications but I gained all my pregnancy weight back the past 2 years. I am a big time emotional eater. I am dedicated to being a better mother though and losing weight and having more energy will help me to do that. I want to lose at least 60 pounds - preferably by November. I hope that is possible. If not I will be patient and just be happy to be feeling better and getting out exercising.

Trying to get back to my former self.
Hi Beans. Welcome! This site is so great. I have only been here 2 weeks but I have learned so much. I also gained weight a couple years after having my daughter. This site is full of great info and the support you will receive is priceless. Also, there are some great challenges you can join. The challenges have a lot of info and support also. My favorite thing has been being able to enter all my food and exercise info and see where I am going wrong. Good luck!

Avoiding people when your weight is up
I avoid people like crazy. I live in a small town and all the people I went to high school with pretty much still live here too! I was a size 0 when I graduated. I have seen a couple people over the last 2 weeks and both times launched into an explanation of how I gained the weight and that I am on a diet and exercising now. I know they probably just wanted to get away from me. I have missed out on SO much because of the embarrassment I feel about my weight.

2nd day on fat secret
Thanks to all for the support! Congrats Mark - that's a huge loss in a pretty short time. I had never heard of the diet you're on. I feel pretty good today. Have to get exercising though! I have been lazy today. HOw often do you all weigh? I weighed twice yesterday and it made me sad.

2nd day on fat secret
Hi! I am a 31 year old single mother of a 3 year old precious adorable daughter. I had an eating disorder in my teens and early twenties. I never weighed over 130 until my 4th month of pregnancy. I eventually wound up at 192 lbs the day I gave birth. I was often below 100 lbs until I turned 25 which I know was unhealthy. After my pregnancy I lost a lot of the weight. I had some medical complications and surgery a little while after the pregnancy and gained all my weight back. This is the first time I have gotten serious about losing weight since then. I want to have energy and be able to play outside for hours with my daughter and take her to the park and just be a good role model. I also want to be healthy about my weight loss and not slip back into bingeing and purging. Basically I stay at home a lot because I am embarrassed about how I look. I don't have a support system here because I - it's a long story but the online community is the only support I have right now. If anyone needs a buddy to help stay motivated let me know! Good luck to everyone.
