Hi! I'm Dana. I was always a 'skinny girl', that is until I had Kolby...which was 10 years ago. I have decided to 'own' the fat now and am ready to get rid of it. I am about 5'0" (probably less now lol) and last time I weighed, it was 150#. To get to the higher end of my 'ideal' weight, I need to lose 15 pounds. My goal is 125#, so I have a battle.
I did really great with Turbo Jam about 2 years ago, but I just cannot keep up with the diet and the exercise now that I'm working again. So, this year, I subscribed to WW online and bought a treadmill. I would love an accountability group!

thanks!

Welcome! I'm April and I'm pretty new here myself . I'm 5'5" 197 trying to get down in the 150s. I started at 245 this go around, though I was up to 270s when I had my daughter in 2011.

Welcome to the board Dana!

I'm Kelsey, mommy to Kendra (6 1/2) and Josh (almost 3). I've always been "the skinny girl...well until I quit dancing/teaching dance and had Josh. I definitely gained some weight when I was pregnant with him and hadn't been very good at taking care of myself until about June last year when I started using My Fitness Pal and trying to work out again. I'm 5'4" and currently around 135. My goal weight is between 125 and 130.

Welcome to the board! Weight Watchers is a great program. I've seen a lot of people lose weight using it. I think they have a realistic plan too. I'm glad you joined us. I can't wait to hear about your success!

Hi and welcome to the board! I'm Jaime and I have 4 kids, ages 9 down to 2. I was always thin and didn't have much trouble losing weight after pregnancy until after #4. I just can't seem to shake it. I got down close to my prepregnant weight, but started putting weight back on over the last year. I'm trying my best to change up my exercise (I run marathons, and running isn't burning the fat like it used to. *sigh*) so I start to lose the extra 20lbs I'm carrying around.

Thanks for all the wonderful welcomes, ladies! I can't wait to get back on track.

I also have the ilose app, and it is pretty good. I wonder if any one app (MFP, iLose, WW) is any better than the other?
