So a big Hello to everyone! And here is my info

Since I gave up my career to be SAHM I have gained 20 pounds (in 14 months!) I am going to start writing down everythig I eat. I hope this will be enlightening. I know I need to eat less and move more. But I need to also make healthier eating choices.

Let's go girls! Group hug!
It hurt to type in my starting weight too but just think about it this way in a few weeks you will never be that weight again! I also gained weight when I became a SAHM (actually lossed, than gained- depression is funny like that) But I am much more upbeat now, new year-new you. It's gonna rock!

Hurdles- Finding time for exercise and cooking dinner(not relying on prepared food and/or last minute carry-out). Usually breakfast and lunch are fine....it's dinner that trips us up!

If you have one day a week (say a weekend) try to do your cooking then and freeze\fridge it, so when you come home exhausted just pop it in. Also getting bagged salads have worked great for me, I made them and fruit my only easy to grab foods in the house so if I want something quick thats it. I think all of us are going to do great!

weight: don't know/ haven't looked in 2 years
diet plan: walking/ maybe low carb? not sure best route
downfall: sugar
goal: total of prob 50 lbs or so
Are you breast feeding? Because if you are be very careful about what sorta diets you go on, I know because I was an idiot with DD and wanted that baby weight off fast and she started to lose weight because I wasn't providing her what she needed. If sugar is your down fall, ban it from the house, Splenda is okay (still has an after taste to me) but if you really need a sugar fix it will do it. Also don't stress too much, having a new baby is hard work, just enjoy him and go for walks together, that sorta thing.

No Chocolate?!?!?!? Oh wow. Yes I need to do that too. Right now I am saying no to sweet tea which is tough for a southern girl like me.

Hey all - So since everyone was talking up Wii, I was really concidering getting one. First, because its better then just sitting on my butt all day at home (SAHM), and second, because it just looks like fun! So I called, and called, and called every store in the area, and every single store in all of New Jersey is sold out. I could get it online if I really wanted to, but $250 in stores compaired to online prices of $399 plus S&H - I don't think so! Plus, the one that seems like it would be best for cardio - the boxing - you have to get these $50 to $60 gloves for it! I heard the baseball one is really hard to do as well. I don't know, we will see... Its funny though, because I was giving up a christmas gift from DH to get it - a night out at a NYC Bobby Flay restaurant!


Lets Keep Loosing Those Pounds Girls!

Hi everyone - I was going to join you here and mention the great resource of sparkpeople.com but decided to do a quick search at Spark first and found someone had started a team there already. You might want to take a look, its free - they really do have great resources for tracking food, excercise, etc and great people too! - Judie

I went to the website - seems ok. I still think its a good idea for everyone on here to report in at least once a week and let everyone know how they are doing - were on here all the time anyway, right?!?. Also, I was thinking that we should each have a "buddy" that we chat with over emails about once a week, just to keep each other motivated.
If I get positive feedback on the "buddy" idea, I will group everyone up and let you know who your buddy is.
Let me know!

I second the buddy idea! It would really help keep people motivated.
