    It doesn't work

    I am new to this whole support group thing. My weight is something very personal to me so it's hard to share. I had a baby two years ago and can't seem to get back to even close to my pre pregnancy weight. I've tried so many things but when I don't see progress I give up. My husband is not good at supporting me . I need someone to keep me going.

  • Hi All - I'm new to the group and I've managed to lose 28 pounds since Feb. I still have 40 pounds to go (+ the 5 pounds I've gained back recently). I guess you could say that I've been motivated and killing it for a while, but somewhere in the last month or so, I just lost that motivation. I'm starting over today and looking for support from this group. Can't wait to read your posts going...

    I'm back. Again

    I know they are all excuses, but I lost motivation, fell in love with eating again, got sick, had surgery, and became somewhat depressed about life.Yea, excuses.Now I am waiting for my doctor to clear me for exercise. I had shoulder surgery (torn rotator cuff), and am now about 1 month post-op. I need to be careful because my left arm is not capable of supporting me in the event of a fall or...

    Hello Everyone,I have never joined a support group, but interested to learn more about the community. I am a 36-year-old mom who has struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. From the time when I was a teenager (who was not fat but thought I was) to now approaching middle age with 30+ pounds to lose. Having trouble staying on track. Any advice is welcome. :)
