It Is Time...

I was not fat as a kid. My parents were over weight, but I swore I wasn't going to be. Now, 5 kids later, here I am. I tried for a long time to keep the weight down (after I had gained 60 pounds with my first baby). After my third, I had post-partum depression that was undiagnosed for a couple of years. Then when I was 41 I had my fourth child and within 6 months I was pregnant with my 5th...TOTAL surprise!  Two kids within two years after the age of 40??? Yeah, not good. Twelve days after my daughter was born, she passed away and I spent a year in a haze.
Now I have 100 pounds to lose. I have high blood pressure (taking meds) and fibromyalgia along with some days of depression still.
But today I got my new eating/workout plan and I am ready to get going!
My family and  have to make a lot of changes so I am planning to take this week to get groceries, etc. My goal is to lose 50 pounds by the summer and get off of at least one blood pressure and maybe the cholesterol medications. I have tried and failed numerous times, but I do feel more motivated and ready this time!

Good luck and you can do it. Just keep on going and never forget why your doing this. good luck!! <3

Hi! I'm doing a 90 day weight loss challenge and I was wondering if you were interested? If so let me know, there is also a chance to make money. Hope to hear from you. check my website out

Hi I'd like to help u when will u be online?

Hi everyone,

my name is Jim, and I would like to take a few mins of your time and present to you a secret that most Pharmaceutical giants or gym corporations want to keep away from you.

You see this is a secret that is actually 110% full proof

- WHY -

Because it doesn't ask you to spend more money yet again on some magical pill that would somehow shake away all that unwanted fat.
Because it is based on logic
Because millions have already succeeded and reached their weight loss goal

Hey just like you, millions including myself; have been tormented with these non-stop quick magical solution scams. Which is why I won't say any more than I already have.
I will let you decide for yourself.

If your tired of having wasted money, time on GYM memberships, home exercise equipment and/or pills/shakes then:

Listen friend, I said earlier that this program is 110% full proof. And I meant it; this is the only program that will reimburse you no questions asked even after you've tried it after 60 days.

so what d'ya gotta lose huh? Except a couple of unwanted pounds.


Hi I'd like to help u when will u be online?

have you checked out body by vi? I am a user and a promoter and I have lost 30 pounds and kept it off! You will lose weight but gain energy, which having kids is a needed thing! lol I have my daughter so I understand!

check it out

Just read your post... I have never gotten on a chat room but decided to look into it. I have gone through some similar things as you. I am a mother of 4 dealt with some depression after my 3rd child born 16 months apart and now my husband lost his job. I am an aerobics instructor and personal trainer but still struggle with my weight. You really have to find something that works for you. Whether it be a certain "diet", shakes, I am not against a lot but not a big fan of pills but you have to be able to stick with it. If you want to talk I would love to support each other. I am currently trying to reduce processed foods and drinking a shake or 2 a day to help shrink my stomach but still get some good nutrition in my body. Starving will not work. Hope you get started and get to feeling better about yourself!!!!


I too am an instructor and trainer and have dealt with the PPD and only have 3 kids but I still struggle with weight issues. I can relate to both of you. I too am available to chat/support, which I truly enjoy doing...helping other succeed in their weight loss efforts. I've lost weight numerous times and of course have put it back on to do it again: Good luck to you both.

Wow! I love your motivation and energy! I too just started my own weight loss challenge its so simple! I just replace two meals a day with a shake and you will see your health fitness goals tremendously! The shakes are less than $2 a day and have honestly saved my life with the results I've gotten. Here check out this overview video:

I see that you are trying to loose weight and that is so great! I was wondering if you ever thought of using an BeachBody products and videos? They are really great and there seems to be a program for everyone. There are kickboxing (Turbo Jam and Turbo Fire), there is stuff with more weights and plyometrics like P90X and tons more. Touch ba<x>se with me if you are interested. Check out my site or send me an email if you would like to talk more about it! You can email me too through the site. I'd love to help you meet your goal! Thanks! Dana

I'm not sure if you've ever heard of the Advocare products before or not but they're pretty awesome. All weight loss products work better when you work out too but these are specially designed so that it's not required, just watching what you eat and adding a few extra things into your day. I'm only on day 6 of a 24 day program but I've lost 3 pounds already and it's not a starve yourself diet! I encourage you to check it out for yourself if you're at all curious and do some research. I did my own research before I started and found out that I knew several people that were/had used it and found nothing bad about it online or by word of mouth. Check it out and let me know what you think!<br />

I enjoy working out and love motivating people. I am here to listen and motivate you whenever you need a push!! I think when you have someone helping you along the way and someone to go through the journey with you it makes it a lot easier and a lot of fun! :)

Hey, I have something that may help your progress!<br />
Please have a look at the site below, and contact me if you would like more information! Its been working great for me :) I was 214, I am now 174!!<br />

good luck!!

I have a friend that will inspire you to keep moving! he's tried everything and now he's found something that works ! <--- he was was 601LBS .. look at him now !! I hope this helps

I have found an incredible line of targeted nutrition products that can help heart health (including blood pressure), digestive health and various women's issues. After 5 days, I feel better than I ever have, so I want to share these products. I am here to support you!

I wish you the best of luck! I know how difficult it can be to have motivation when there is so much weight to lose. I have the same amount to lose, myself. I'm also very sorry to hear what you went through with losing a child and the depression.

Thank you so are you doing with your weight loss?? I am pathetic as I keep putting it off, but I am shopping this week for my new food plan and I plan to start in earnest on Monday. I look forward to posting my success!!! Good luck to you as well :o)

Im in your same boat....putting it off so far.

Love your energy. I would enjoy being healthly lifestyle buddies if you would like. Over the last three years I lost 100 pounds. In the last 6 months I gained 40 pounds due to bipolar medication changes. I have dropped 13 pounds in the last month since the sugar and carb cravings have stopped after getting off the mania medications I have to take when manic. You may add me as a friend I would like to be supportive of your effort.
