Compared to some, I'm not trying to lose a lot of weight - I'm just trying to get where I was before my last chilld. It doesn't sound like it would be too hard but with will-power like mine (that would be non-existent) I seem to have trouble! I have started many times but I usually fail once I get bored of not being able to have all the sugar my brain is telling me I need! I would say that is my main problem - my sweet tooth! My next biggest problem is I hate veggies! As my age goes up it seems I can’t eat like I used to! Who knew! At my current weight, based on past experience, I should be giving birth soon!! LOL! Lawd help me that should happen again!! 🤣. I am too heavy for me to be comfortable. It’s time I changed my lifestyle to one that more fits my age!! I will be strong this time...........cut down on the sweets.......resistance is NOT futile!!

My Goals:
I gained weight each time I had a child and then when I had back problems I gained more but since then I haven't been able to lose any of it. My goal is to lose about 20lbs....that's my last pregnancy and my back ache extras!

My Program:
I plan to try to get a little exercise a little each day and to cut back on sweets and over sized portions of food.

We just got a Wii Fit and while I thought it just a fun toy - the past few nights I have used it, got some exercise and enjoyed myself too. It may not burn a lot of calories like a treadmill but it's better than what I was doing!! (That's nothing by the way!)

Personal Information:
I'm from the UK - but I'm now living in Tennessee with my wonderful Hubby and 3 boys. Home is where the heart is!

Other Information:
I am a big Star Trek fan! I am also a member of the Where's George community - go check that out at Wheresgeorge.com!
I love TV and movies!
