Good luck. Losing weight is the hardest thing I have ever done. And I have another 30 pounds to go before I can put on a bathing suit or walk around with my kids without being self-conscious. It is SOOO hard on the self esteem.

congrats on setting a goal for yourself and doing the work - i know how hard it is. i'm currently trying to exercise more and lose weight. i need to be more healthy to keep up with my daughter!


Good luck Jessamyn! We'll be cheering you on. Four weeks is enough time to notice a difference, to lose a few pounds, and most of all, to start feeling more energetic and better about yourself. After that four weeks, you won't be able to stop!

I cycle every morning. I have a trailer, and like it or not, Kellan also cycles every morning! We always have a trip to the park included in the ride, so Kellan knows that there's something to look forward to. I am at my pre-pregnancy weight now (it took over a year to get my body back) and feeling great, healthy, energetic, and muscular. You can do it! Good luck and enjoy the results.

Ahhhhh,the memories of Jenny Craig. I did that many years ago. I lost $1,000 and gained 25 microwaveable plates! The second I stopped eating her food,I blew up. I was supposed to be able to maintain my weight by eating "normal" food according to my counselor there but that didn't happen. Not at all! I have struggled with my weight ever since.
Good for you for having such a positive attitude. I have tried and tried to focus on eating well and exercising but after a week,something happens and suddenly I am off track.
We are going to DisneyWorld for the first time as a family in November and I keep trying to lose weight so that I will not be out of breath walking through the parks.
Thanks for the inspiration.


What a wonderful new attitude! I will be adopting it - have goals, be determined but go moment by moment... I've got to keep playing that in my head!!! Best wishes for a very happy birthday. Naomi


You know what makes it more enjoyable for me? A good audiobook on the mp3. Then it's something I look forward to, rather than something I dread. I get to "read" silly mind-candy fiction and feel good about it.
