Today, I finally owned up to how uncomfortable I am in my own skin! I am ready to get back on my weight loss journey...the healthy way.

Starting tomorrow, water, water, water, exercise, exercise, exercise, fruits, veggies.....significantly less snacking (and when I do snack, it'll be on something healthy)...and major changes!

I am going to find some type of exercise to do since I am a SAHM but no worries, I'm going to make this work whether I find one or make up one of my own!

I am fed up...I am tired...I am ready!
Wish me luck!

Welcome to the board!

You might know me from the SAHM board, but I'm Kelsey, wife to Jason and mommy to Kendra (6) and Josh (2 1/2). This is a GREAT group of ladies! Full of motivation and encouragement!

Have you thought about keeping a food journal (or checking out a site like My Fitness Pal)? I have found writing down what I eat a great way to make sure I drink enough water and it also helps me with my snacking habits. I just started using some Leslie Sansone Walk at home videos (you can get them at Walmart for around $10.00). I am doing the 5 day slim down right now and loving it!

Hi, welcome!!! I'm excited for you- first step on your journey to improved health.

When I first started exercising I was also a SAHM and had just had my 6th baby. That was more than 5 years ago now, and I haven't always been consistent and successful, but I've always kept moving toward my goal in some way. You can totally do this!

The kids used to call Leslie Sansone my best friend. When she would say something about "Sisters in Sweat" it would crack them up. After that I made a rule that they either did the video with me or stayed the heck out of my workout space, LOL!!

Hi there! I'm new here too. I'm a SAHM of two young boys, and I've totally made up my own exercises to fit our schedule and needs. One of them is lying in bed flat on my back with my abs engaged as I bicycle my legs 100 times. Really strengthens the core and lets me sneak in a quiet exercise right beside my sleeping toddler, lol.
