So ok, im 27yrs old with 3 kids and over the last year, or less, I have gained 50 pounds!!! Now honestly I dont really eat that much, but I also dont exercise either. I have been on a lot of different medications over the last year for depression and back problems. I think that might be the problem. Well for 6 mos. I have been off meds and the weight is still here. Does anyone have any insight to where I begin to shed these pounds??

Hi, Shar. I'm lurking here, but am usually hanging on the 50-100 diet community site. Just wanted to say welcome.
Start a food and fitness planner here on WebMd, Fitday.com, Livestrong.com or wherever . they are free and make logging your intake and exercise much easier than the "old way" of journaling.
Make small changes that you can live with.

If you go out, cut your entire meal IN HALF and box half BEFORE you even take one bite. You still get to eat what you want, just less of it.

Go grocery shopping just to browse the nutrition labels. Remember, things that say HEALTHY , LOW CALORIE, LEAN or LITE, need special attention because somewhere in there, the manufacturer has added extra sugar to lower fat, or extra fats to lower the sugars... Just to make their product TASTE good. PICK YOUR POISON in other words.

If there are more than 5 items on the ingredients label, that's 4 too many.
Best choices are the items that DON'T HAVE LABELS.... like fresh fruits, veggies and meats.

Shop the OUTSIDE aisle for 3/4 of your groceries. All the fillers and "junk" are in the inside aisles.
