Hi! My name is Jessica. I am 20 years old and I want to lose a few pounds before DH and I TTC in October. (He will be home from tech school next month.)

I really need to lose about 30 lbs but that is NOT going to happen before we TTC. I want to get healthy and fit to the best of my ability before I get pregnant and then keep exercising/eating healthy throughout my pregnancy then finish weight loss post delivery.

I am not going to try to lose all the weight before getting pregnant. Having our baby is first right now.

I have done Weight Watchers off and on since I was 15 and all I did was gain in the end. It's not the program that's the problem.. it's ME and my lack of dedication. DH is trying to put me on a boot camp diet and exercise program... one HE made up from his experiences at basic training. He is tired of me complaining and just wants me to do it once and for all so I stop whining and crying about my weight.

Anyway, I just want somewhere to post where I can get encouragement and give it out as well. Right now, I am trying to get up at 5:45 am and get to the college track at 6 am and jog then go home and get ready for work (jog 7 days a week) but I am lacking the motivation when the alarm goes off. I AM GOING TO DO IT THOUGH!!

I am going to start using my parents Total Gym while I live with them and then I always have the FIRM workout DVDs and equipment and I have an eliptical. (Of course, all of this means I have NO excuses. )

Anyway, thanks for letting me introduce myself. I look forward to meeting ya'll!

Thanks so much for the speedy response!! I really want to become an integral part of this board.

Being healthier is very important to me

I have no problems drinking my water (when I am exercising, I drink over 100 oz/day and still crave it badly). It's the exercising and giving up chocolate that's the problem.

I just have to do this. Thanks for the support!

Hi Jessica! I'm Kathy. Mom to two boys, a 5 year old and a 15 month old. I just started an exercise program two weeks ago. I am trying to lose my baby weight. I have been wanting to lose weight for a long time. It finally started depressing me and I decided to do something about it. I have lost two pounds so far. I cant wait until I finally have a nice fit body. Look forward to getting to know you.
