Hey ladies! I've posted off and on here before, I'd love to become more active and stay! Life just gets in the way

I'm Erika, I have a 7 year old girl named Alexis. I've been on a weight loss journey for most of my life- back in 2003 I lost 90 pounds (then I got married and pregnant, gained a lot back). Ever since my daughter was born, I've been trying again and again. FINALLY something clicked this time.
I started January 1 (cliche, yes) and I'm down 21.8 pounds (from 187.4 to 165.6) and going super strong. I'm just as motivated today as I was when I started, maybe even more so.

I've totally changed my way of thinking and eating this time, which has helped. I'm a calorie counter and eating a lot more "clean" this time, not as much processed foods and I'm never hungry. Love it!!

Anyway, looking forward to being here and knowing you all!

Hi Erika, I'm happy to see you here again! I recognize the picture of your daughter in your siggy. Congratulations on your weightloss, that's great! Whatever you are doing is obviously working! There are so many different ways to define eating "clean" I'd love to hear more of your thoughts on that... sounds like a new thread. Anyway, welcome!

Hey Erika! Welcome to the board. I started working out in January too. This board has made a huge difference for me. I tend to start working out and then quit in a matter of a few weeks. This board is a great support system and I hope you will stick around. Can't wait to see you reach your goals!
