ok, i just got back from walmart and i bought a scale.  i kinda had an idea of what i weighed but just seeing it on the scale is so NOT fun!!  ugh!!  first, let me say that i'm 5'7" and have ALWAYS been rail thin.  i was mercilessly teased for being so scrawny.  i was around 120 when i got married only 6 1/2 years ago.  i would like to lose about 20 lbs.  ok.....can i get a drum roll.....i weigh 150.4 lbs.  i know that doesn't sound like a lot, but i'm so unhappy with it.  i want to be around 130 lbs. 
sooooo.....now it's YOUR turn to say how much you weigh.  all of us are here because we aren't happy with where we are, so the "number" you're at right now isn't going to stay at that "number" for very long!!!  so don't be shy or embarrassed!!  let's all encourage and motivate each other!!!

Well, as for me I weigh 192lbs.  I don't look it as I am 5'11 and it I proportion well, but I weigh over 30lbs more than when I first met DH and I would like to lose somewhere between 20 and 30lbs.  I would like to lose the weight to 1, feel better about my appearance, and 2, to be healthier for my next pregnancy, which DH and I would like to start trying for again in a year.

You and me both! DH agreed that we'll start trying again when our baby turns 4. Right now he's 2 1/2 and potty training and he's doing really well...almost no accidents. I thought I might be happy about having no diapers to change but now I'm just having the baby blues :-(

I do not own a scale, and never did, because I never wanted to torment myself. However, I never had to exersize before so maybe I need to buy one. I did go to the Dr. two weeks ago and I was 200lbs. I am 6 feet so it is all in my belly and just a little in my face but I wish it was in my butt. (LOL) I need to loose 30 pounds, I started exersizing with Jillian from the biggest looser video two weeks ago because after being horribly skinny most of my life and loosing the weight without trying after my first child I realized after my second that things are not going back this time without some elbow greese. However, sometimes I have felt melencholy after exersizing and I think it is the stress of being a mom, student, wife and volunteer worker that I have to push myself to love myself enough to be healthy. I really just want to be healthy because I have been skinny and it isn't so great either. I'm going to buy a scale this weekend and then I will post it to my new support group mommies. I need some enchouragment ladies, I'm stressing to keep it together.
