Hi there! My name is Layci and I am a 30 year old mother of 3 year old twin girls who are my WORLD! I am a former middle school art teacher, but now stay at home with my girls and run my own little design business on the side. You would think that chasing twins around would be enough to keep my skinny, but that's not the case! My sweet hubby of 9 years has never, ever made me feel bad about my weight and is super supportive, but I am here to gain the support from people who are in my shoes!

Hello from Texas
Hi there! I just joined yesterday, so I'm trying to find my way around here before I become fully involved. Anyway, I am 30 years old and the mother of 3 year old twin girls. You would think that chasing two 3 year olds around all day long would keep me looking skinny but that's not the case! I am a former middle school art teacher but I am now starting year 2 as a stay-at-home mom. I run my own little art & graphic design business on the side, so that tends to keep me fairly busy along with my kids. Fortunately, my sweet husband of 9 years has never, ever made me feel like I am "fat" in anyway and has done nothing but encourage me in all of my "dieting journeys." I really want him to have a "hot wife" and I really want my kids to have a mom that they are not embarrassed by someday!

I have struggled with my weight for about 9 years now. At this moment, I weigh the most I have ever weighed in my entire life. My mom's side of the family pretty much all has weight issues, while my dad's side of the family are all skinny-minis. Of course, my 2 sisters are both skinny & gorgeous without working out or following any type of diet, so it's always fun to be standing next to them! (Being the "fat sister" sucks, by the way. Ha!) About 2 years ago, I was going to Metabolic Research Center and lost about 30 pounds. It was the first time in a long time that I had weighed under 200 lbs! I swore that I would never get up that high again, but now, here I am weighing about 20 lbs. more than I did when I started Metabolic Research Center.

The reason I stopped going there was because it was soooo expensive for one, plus, I just couldn't keep eating the way I needed to eat to stay on their plan. It's not normal! Maybe if I had stuck it out, it would have gotten better, but I do not have the will power to continue eating funky things (to me anyway) when everyone around me is eating "normal food."

I recently joined Sparkpeople.com and am pretty impressed with their diet plan, so I think that I am going to go that route. I also bought a Wii Fit yesterday and so far, I think I will be able to do pretty well on that. I have never been much of an excercise-type person so hopefully this will be right up my alley! I am too embarrassed to join a gym and since I stay home with my kids, it's nearly impossible for me to go work out anywhere but at home anyway.

I look forward to meeting some of you and joining you all in this journey! It is nice to know that I am not alone!

Sorry for the long post by the way! Thanks for sticking it out if you've made it this far...ha ha!
