    Hello Everyone. I just wanted to say Hi and Introduce myself. It took me a couple of days looking at different weight loss forums to find one that looked promising. I must say I instantly liked this place when I first "walked in."

    I am a single mother of a sassy 2 year old, and I am desperately looking to loose the excess weight that I have seemed to carry with me since I was a teenager. I'm getting tired of being tired, and my body is getting tired of carrying around an extra "me." Things are starting to hurt that never used to, and basically, I can't keep doing this to myself, or my daughter.

    I got this silly notion in my head a few months before my 29th birthday that I didn't want to be 30 and fat. And so that is what brings me here! I just need support!

    Welcome LR!! Like you i am fed up of being overweight and tired all the time. My child is almost 3 and i never really lost the 'baby weight' after i gave birth! I found this site about a week ago and find it really inspiring to hear how much people have lost and the support and help from others is massive. Good luck on your journey!
