Anybody interested in a weight loss buddy?

I am a 38 year old mother of 4. I have gained and lost more weight than I'd care to admit. I currently weigh about 210 (I am 5'7"). Last year I lost 40 lbs. and have already gained 30 of it back! I am losing my motivation to try to lose because I'm afraid I will gain it right back. Anyone interested in sharing a weight loss journey?

Hey Ladies!

Are you looking to get healthy, lose weight, improve your energy? Sounds great, right?

Let me tell you a little background on how I got here. My husband and I started the program in May of 2013. We were truly shocked at how easy this was and amazed by our results! I lost 20lbs in two months, and he lost 40lbs in 3.5 months.

If the pounds weren't enough to make me thrilled, loosing 4 inches in my butt and hips had me ecstatic! haha. The best part is we haven't gained it back. Our view on food is different and we are more active.

It was so incredibly easy to keep on board with the program. There is less than 5 min. prep time for the food, some are just open and go! I loved that I could toss a snack in my purse and not rely on finding a "healthy choice" on the go. Not to mention, cooking once a day was a nice break.

Well, one thing leads to another and I decided to be a health coach through Take Shape For Life after I did the program. I want to help others create a healthy lifestyle that is sustainable. I've included my website in case you want to reference it at a later time.

You can see all of the meal options, read more about what this program is and what it entails at the website below. Stop by my facebook page and feel free to email me any questions. I am completely honest and open and want to help you reach your goals. Did I mention my health coaching service is free?!!!!

Thanks, Kristin

Awesome! Yeah, I need to make myself make changes that I can actually live with. I am so tired of losing 40 or 50 lbs in 5 or 6 months and gaining most of it back in the next 5 or 6! Maybe having someone to check in with will help! We do have a lot of similarities in our stories! Most of my family is much shorter and heavier than me, so they don't see me as needing to lose weight. They are no help!

I will be 38n this year, i also have 4 children. Me too girl, my story is a little different in that I am taller than you, so I carry my weight differently. i am 6 ft tall. I do know that it is not about diet( the word) it's about totatl change. I read alot about health and what role food plays. Kari if you are still needing a buddy, me too, I was just begging , my husband this morning, to do this with me. I weigh 180 and would like to lose 20 pounds this summer.
