    Hi daisy, and welcome!

    Congratulations on your impending adoption! How exciting for you. I'm not sure why you couldn't adopt from some countries and not others because of your weight. Do some countries think that overweight mothers are bad parents? Makes no sense to me. I think that anyone willing to go through an adoption process shows that they have more than enough love for a child.

    Wow, nine pounds is awsome! We're a tight knit community. We cheer for your victories, cry with your heartache and generally are here for support. You'll find a wealth of knowledge here. If you have a question, more than likely someone has experienced before. Like any community, we have our clashes, but that's life, right?

    I look forward to following your progress. Good luck and keep us updated!

    welcome and good luck on your weight loss and adding to your family! i can not believe there is somewhere that would not allow you to adopt because of your weight, thats insane! like your weight has anything to do with the size of your heart and your ability to care for a child, but anyway, good luck and i am sure you will be very successful!

    Talking New here....kinda long......

    I am a new member!! And I just wanted to send a big HELLO to you and tell you a bit about myself.
    I'm Jen, 27 from Wisconsin and I am married to Joe, 34. We are in the process of adopting our first child. We have been struggling with infertility for over 6 years, and we are considered "unexplained" we decided that adoption was something we've always wanted to do, and saved enough money to do it....We are super excited!!
    Over the years I have went up and down with weight and finally met my highest weight of 252....and in the process of deciding to adopt I was told we could adopt from a certain county becuase of my weight!!!!!! Talk about a stab in the heart!! Not only am not able to get pg on my own, I can't adopt a baby either because I am FAT!! Nice!!
    So, I have decided not only for my health, but for my future adoption and child, I'm losing weight!! And keeping it off.
    My first week on 30mg of Phen I lost 9lbs!!!! I'm pumped.
    I look forward to getting everyone and I love reading your stories....such inpiration and they are so REAL....I feel less crazy when I read how others feel about the same things I do....haha!!
    There was a lady that wrote about the "duck walk" to get into jeans and I about peed my pants and work laughing (okay not really, but I was laughing out loud at my computer, again looking crazy to my co-workers)!!

    Okay I'll end this, I do get long winded, but I love to talk and meet people. I am very open about everything in my life (that is sometimes not a good

    Again, I can't wait to get to know everyone, feel free to tell me about your experience with Phen or just life in general!!
