I'm making some small strides in my effort to lose my pear shaped belly by eating less junk food and making better food choices.
As for why I am doing all of this, the last woman in my life dumped me and I need one in my life right now.
I am a mom of three and with each kid I gained a few extra pounds while not really losing any in between. My ultimate goal is to lose about 75lbs. I think that might put me into about a size 16. For me that would be pretty good and a whole lot healthier. I have high blood pressure and heart disease history in my family as well as diabetes. Besides health issues, I just want to be able to roll around on the floor and keep up with my kids. I also want to pass on a better eating lifestyle to them. My mom and my sister have started taking Slimquick. I'm not too sure about pills but how can I jumpstart some weight loss that might help inspire me to do more? I need help cooking better and forming better habits for three toddlers. Any suggestions?
I have a lot of weight to loose. 50 to 60 pounds. I have much trouble getting and staying motivated. I want to loose weight primarily to get healthy again, and looking good in a size 12 jeans would be an added side benefit!
This past year has been the worst as far as my health is concerned. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Breast Cancer, DCIS.
I think I need a good support group to help me get motivated. I have lost weight in the past but find it hard to get stared this time.
Any help would be appreciated.
One of the true joys in life is to earn money doing something you're passionate about, that also makes a great contribution in the lives of others. I get to experience that everyday and nothing else I've ever done even comes close.

Good Morning Tushies....I just joined this club. I thought it sounded interesting and motivating. I have been on a weight loss journey for the last 5 months. I have lost 30 lbs. I started practicing yoga once a week and let me tell you, find a great yoga instructor, one that truly practices and has studied yoga and it will do WONDERS for you. Have a great day and look forward to clubbing with all of you Tushies!!!
Last year, my bariatrician gave me the goal of 165 lbs to lose before they will consider me for gastric bypass surgery. I lost 65 last year but the hundred is being stubborn. I want to have the surgery this year but, like I said, it's being stubborn to come off. My motivation is down as well as my main support person. She is back to stocking her house with chocolate and if there is goodies in the house, I will eat them and she knows it. I don't know if I can do this!
Not only is this happening, but I have signed up for online college for this fall and am trying to get my financial loans together and my support person (the same one) is all the time saying I have bit off more than I can chew and that I'm not smart enough to go into psychology. I know I have a lot on my plate but that is how I like it. I work best with a lot on my plate but not overly too much. I need a kick in the tush to get started again on losing weight again. I think. Help! I know I need to lose it for my health and for my looks and that I will just feel better and that most if not all of my health problems will go away or ease if I was at a healthier weight and I know what I need to do but for some reason I'm stuck. I think I'm in a rut and I don't know how to get out of it. Any ideas?
