I've been having a hard time, saying yeah i'm going to do it blah blah blah but then i eat that fast food because its too late to cook anything, or easier, well i make up any excuse to use the mocrowave of go out...but im teaching my son bad habits and I need to learn to break mine! Would love to meet other women with this same problerm!!

Hi! I'm in a similar situation. My family eats a lot of fast food and quick meals (ie. chicken fingers in the oven and other packaged stuff). I feel guilty about it all the time. I have a 5 and 7 year old and keep kidding myself that I'm still carrying 50 extra pounds of baby weight!! I think it's now just "busy-life" weight but even that's not an excuse. The truth is, if we made healthy eating our top priority, we could do it. It's harder than driving thru McDs but it would be really worth it to teach our kids about lifelong health so they don't end up like us! And we'd be thinner and happier too! Good luck!

hi, i'm 27 years old and i have a 6, 3, and 15 month old i have gained 55lbs total with my last 2 pregnancys. I completely understand how you feel about it just being easy to get fast food or just stick something in the microwave. I just joined today because I realize i need support and I don't have any one who gets excited about losing weight at home. All I want for chrismas is to fit into my size 9 jeans again.... :)
