Kids - Lisa, 8 months
Why did you join the community?: To overcome my total lack of will to live a healthier lifestyle. I had to worry a lot about the very life of my daughter in the first month, so I barely ate anything and was almost back to normal. But then it got much, much better with the baby and much, much worse with the weight, I gained about 40 lb in no time, which is disproportional and generally ugly. I still have no clue was it hormonal or nutrition-related or whatever. Also, I'm a habitual drinker.
I'd appreciate if someone wanted to talk to me about it and their own experiences. I don't even know where to start.
Current weight: 200.
Long term goals: Establishing any realistic-looking long-term goals.
A little about yourself: I'm a working mother and my husband is a stay-at-home dad. I work all through the evening, teaching people things. Work is fun. But I don't get to eat until late at night, which I cannot avoid doing, due to stomach aches. I listen to female punk, noise and dark wave.

Introductory post is introductory.
Location: Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Kids - names, ages: No kids, but I do have three dogs? xD
Why did you join the community?: To help me stay motivated to change my lifestyle. I have a horrible tendency to do really well for a month and then lapse back into bad habits for the next three or four, before I get sick of feeling like crap again. I'm hoping that having some support and inspiration will help it stick this time around.
Current weight: 271.
Long term goals: I'm in the process of kicking my fast food habit. I work 10 hour days, and usually have school on top of it, so it's always been tempting for me to stop and get a burger or pizza to take home instead of cooking. I'm trying to put together a collection of easy, healthy recipes that also taste good.. it's not going well. Ahem. I also need to get back to exercising EVERY day; currently all I've been doing is 45 minutes of yoga every other couple of days. I have a desk job, so I'm pretty much sedentary of late. Overall, my goal is basically to get to the point where incorporating good diet and exercise into my life is a pleasurable, seamless sort of thing, rather than a chore.
A little about you: I work for my parents, who own not one but two companies (in which I have little interest apart from the fact that I gotz to git paid). I’m going to school to be a librarian, a career for which I already have plenty of cardigans and an appropriately crotchety attitude. I bought my first house this summer; I live in it with my lazy brother and our lazy dogs. These days I spent entirely too much time watching House, which has totally ruined me for any relationship not with a snarky, emotionally-repressed man who owns a cane for his painful limp. Oh well. Current Mood: bored

Name: Jessica. I created this community!
Location: Pawtucket, RI
Kids - names, ages: Alexander 1 year old, Jaclyn 4 year old sd
Why did you join the community?: To connect with other women going through the same things I am. I need to lose weight, and do it healthy. I think this community will help me stay motivated to get to my ideal weight.
Current weight: I'm not sure exactly, but I think around 270. I need to get a scale.
Long term goals: I want to get in to the habit of eating 5 small meals a day. I tend to just eat once a day, which causes my metabolism to slow down tremendously, and gain more weight. I want to get down to 200. I have a large frame and a lot of muscle, so 200 would actually look good on me.
A little about you: Well, as you know, I'm a mother of two kids. What you don't know, is that they are the most beautiful and wonderful kids EVER. I am very much into being a mother, and love talking to other mothers. I like to read, write, listen to music (punk, metal, pop, and rap. I like everything but I tend to mostly gravitate towards older punk), I don't have cable, and I hate tv. I like dvd's, though. My favorite show is Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which I only saw after it was off the air and on DVD. I really can't stand commericals, haha. I use myspace (www.myspace.com/brutalgardener) and AIM (semetarycherry) a lot. Contact me! :)
