I am a 26 year old mom of two. My highest weight was 400lbs when I had my son at 19. I was always thick but like 120-140lbs and it was all muscle being that I played sports all through high school. My problem was I had two kids back to back. Now I am fairly healthy ( being that I have no major health issues) Just very big. My current weight is 290lbs 5'6". I can't seem to get any weight off. I run around all the time with the kids being in soft ball and base ball plus I work on my feet 8 hours a day. I have been going to a gym for a few months doing cardio and tring to stay away from red meat and salt. I am lost. I really want to loose this weight and be able to enjoy playing base/soft ball with the kids without loosing my breath. Please help me. Thank you all very muchView Thread
