I'm a 25 yr old single mom. My son is 8 (will be 9 in January). As of this morning I weigh 176 and I am 5'2. I am top heavy (big boobs and belly). I am looking to lose 50 lbs by my 26th bday (next Sept.)

I have worked out for 2 days in a row now since installing this app and I can definitely tell I'm out of shape! Just looking for others with similar backgrounds to motivate me and also looking for tips to stay on track.

How long have you been using this app? Besides working out and eating clean, what else did you do?

Hey  alexis this is maria r.Ihave been using this app 4 a while.Iam guessing like 4 mnths.But before that was and still aim using some fitness magz.and before that alot of home exercise vd.those videos where the ones that coused me 2 loose all the weight i mention 2 u earlyer.plus i did a very strick diet.which was 1 salad a day just lettuce and abit of cheese and light ranch dressing.Or sometimes i would have just one natures valley granola bar a day.I dont recomend this 2 no one becouse, i was  just loosing muscle ,and ofcourse weight.But in the long run when i got 2 101 pounds i was left with alot of exses skin on my tummy.And had no tone,  I was practicly like a anorexed girl.so i decided 2 gain a healthy weight back. Wich i did. And my goal right know is 2 gain muscle mass on my lower body. My upper bdy is already built up with muscle.They say that the lower takes more 2 gain muscle mass .Because they r bigger muscles.Butt keep inmind that bigger muscles burn more fat and calories.I would recomand u 2 start a healthy protain diet like chicken without the skin, vegstables lots 2 let u know vegis also have protain, yogurts, nuts,oatmeal, turky bacon,2give u an idea on how 2 loose weight is that u have 2 burn more than what u consume.Hope this helps abit

Hey I am 25 years old single mother of three my oldest is almost 9  others are 4 and 2   I haven't been on here verry long but it deffenatly works if you stick to it and really try you can do it .. I know first hand that it's hard to get motivated when you don't have a spouse to encourage you ..my husband left almost a year ago ..God is my strength ..  He is all I have besides my kids ..I know if of all people I can do this than you can too God will help both of us...I will be praying for you may God give you the strength at every moment you feel weakness ,in Jesus name....
