Hello, I absolutely love this site and have been a fan of it for years! I am doing this as a update post, here is my older post from last July. I really don’t look that different.

I have tried everything this past year to lose weight, working out dieting and nothing seemed to be working. Until recently my friend talked me into joining Weight Watchers, it has only been two weeks and I am already down 13 pounds! My current weight is 187 and I am 5’8 tall. Now I know with my height I can never be 120 and wouldn’t want to be I love having curves! But I do want to be 160-155, which I am starting to realize is possible.

Sometimes I find it hard to look at myself naked, when I sit down, I hate seeing my huge belly roll. It grosses me out, and there have been times I’m my life when I thought, I could never find love because no one would want to me with someone that looks like I do, but I have learned I have to want myself before anyone else can want me.

My biggest fear is that I am going to lose this weight and have all this extra skin. I just hope i wont have a saggy flabby stomach. I’m trying to tone as much as possible. I really love this website, seeing all these beautiful women and knowing the sacrifices we have to make and how much its worth it. I love my daughter more than anything and wouldn’t change a thing! All women are beautiful all shapes all sizes all colors! And one more thing, I love this site for all the support from other people, it is always a huge help and encouragement.

    Wow, you do not look 187!! You carry your weight really well. I’m 5’9″ and 170 and I definitely look bigger than you. 155-160 sounds like a good goal; I was around that before I had my kiddos and felt good there so that’s what I’m shooting for too. Whatever you weigh, you are a beautiful mother :)

    I was going to say that I saw a difference even before I started to read your post. I see a more defined waist for sure! Keep your chin up. I can hear a strong woman through those words you typed!!! You’re beautiful. You’re a woman. And a great mother!!! ♥

    Sounds like you’re doing great : ) maybe pilates to help with the toning? I really don’t know about the skin, I always worry about it when I gain and then lose weight, but luckily have never had it get loose.

    Even for 5’8″ you carry your weight well. I’m 5’7″ and 175 myself and you look thinner than me everywhere!
