following: mmmills's own diet
performance: losing 0.7 lb a week

I am 31, and have been married 11 years, we have three children: a Daughter 10, son 8, and another daughter 4. I am a S.A.H.M. I love my job. I like most things domestic...caring for our home (making it homey), BAKING, cooking (most days), doing things with my children. I have struggled with my own body image in my early teens, then steadily gained weight in my late teens. I have just gotten serious about getting healthy just a little over a year ago. And I have lost 80 lbs, since then. I want my healthy weight to be a part of my new identity, and to represent how I feel on the inside.

Losing weight sucks!
Man, it feels nice to not feel so alone in this issue!! I too have significantly lost a lot in the bust area, but I would not trade it! The clothing thing is an issue. It is expensive (even at the thrift store) to be updating my size every time a drop more weight. BUT my biggest struggle of all, with losing a lot of weight, is how saggy all that extra skin is. I'm feelin confident clothed. But when it comes off, my body reminds me of a deflated balloon. Sad I have been told it will get better, but it would be nice to have it happen quick!

I'm new here :)
I have the app for my BB and found the website recently and it is great here too.
Just a little over a year now, I have been on a serious weight loss quest. I have lost 80 lbs so far with maybe 25 lbs. to go. I have been overweight since I was a teen and now in my 30's I am finially getting it. I cant will anything I have to work hard for it. I started working out with the wii Active game and that got me on a good track with working out. The "trainer" in the game says "Don't wish for it, work for it" That really spoke to me.
At this point its a little harder to stay the course. So I'm adding more things to my life to help me stay motivated. I appreciate everyones encouragement to eachother.
