looking for support

Hi All!  I am a 42 year old mother of 3 hoping to find support on this message board.  10 pounds doesn't sound like much unless you are the one who has been trying to do it FOREVER.  I know I would look & feel much better.  I am so busy with my jobs & kids that it is hard to eat right.  I stay very active which is a good thing because I am a total stress eater & I also love to bake.  I have started reading the weight loss solution book & trying to make sense of all the crazy things I do in the name of food.  I would love to find a support budy to stay in touch with & loose those last 10 pounds with.

Hi, I am a 40 year old mother of two also trying to get 10 lbs. off. I had lost 47 lbs. 4 years ago and maintained that for 2 years...but gained 10 back in the last 2 years. You would think that "just" 10 lbs. would be easier. I am also in Weight Watchers but sometimes I struggle with just thinking being 10 lbs. over is not that bad. But my winter clothes are too tight and 1/2 my wardrobe is really uncomfortable. It is a struggle but I do not want to give up. At my weight watcher meeting I lost 1.6 lbs. the first week and gained one back the following week....argggghhhh. I know I CAN do it, any moral support I greatly appreciated!
Wow, reading your passage makes me realize we have so much in common.  I lost 30 pounds quite a w hile ago.  For a while I stayed in the 128 - 130 lb zone.  I was fairly content.  Now I am 145 & really want to loose 10-15  pounds.  As we are getting older I worry so much about continuing to put on weight.  I also struggle with the thought process of 10 lbs over is not so bad & then I struggle with not wanting to give up.  It is a crazy roller coster ride.  It is hard for me to make ww meetings but I feel so great after I go (I am a lifetime member).  I think we could be great support for each other & should try & set some mini goals.  Even to lose 1lb a week would make us both look & feel great for the holidays.  I don't necessarily want to get in a smaller size I just want the clothes in my closet to fit better & to feel better about myself.  I am open to any ideas.
