Glad to see you here Tabitha, you're a very smart girl to start this and get things under control at your age. Pretty soon your mom is gonna have to take you to the mall to pick up some new gear. Heh heh.....if I was your age I'd be hitting up the Hot Topic store no doubts!!!!

Best of luck!!!!
We all know you can do it, besides you're living with the best example of what is possible!!!

:wave: HeyTabitha! Glad you are back ! Be strong and avoid the pizza. Just think how good you will feel. You have such a wonderful role model for a Mom. You can do this! Just think how great you will feel when school starts and you can get into a smaller size jeans!! :clap:

Hi Tabitha, I know its hard for you, you need to be strong and think about why you want to loose weight. Think about how healthy you will be when you reach goal.
Hold your head up sweetie and know that you can do this....step away from the pizza :)

Hi Tabitha!! You don't know me, but I want to tell you how PROUD I am of you. You made a choice to take control of your life NOW, while you are young and full of energy instead of waiting until you are an adult with a husband and kids like many of us did. Your mom is a beautiful and inspirational person. Lean on her all you can. She is sooooo strong. And look at how great she has done!!! And just think-----with the move, and the new bod, you will practically have a new life!! Enjoy your youth, Tabitha. And, enjoy your health. Oh---about that pizza---that is tough, isn't it! Maybe when she gets pizza for the boys, ya'll could go out for a salad and a walk!! Have some "girl talk".

Congrats on starting. As an 8th grade teacher I know about all of the struggles that people your age are going through. I also know firsthand what it can be like to need to lose a bit. I was 320 lb guy at 16 years old.
Good luck to you and welcome.

Oh, man! The PIZZA torture! That's worse than the hot buttered popcorn torture!

I'm SO PROUD of you for not giving in!!! Look how strong you're getting already? My dad has a saying: Somethings never get easy; they just get hard less often. It WILL get hard less often to just walk by things that smell great and not want a piece. Honest!

For me, it's cake! And this time of year, they seem to be everywhere!!! :help:
Here's to our mutual success! :buddies: --Diana
