    Well, here I am! I finally am fed up with how I look and feel and know that I need to lose weight....according to most "ideal weight charts" I need to lose 70 lbs.

    My name is Ann and I am a mother of 2 boys. I have not quite lost the baby weight, only problem is that my "baby" was born 8 years ago. I am 39 years old, and my goal is to be "fit and 40" rather than "fat and 40".

    Any advice, tips, and/or discussions are welcome. Best of luck to all of you on your weight loss journey!
