Doing this for a new reason

I am 34 years old, married, and I have two boys, a 14 year old and a 2 year old.
I wasn't overweight as a child, but gained as a teen and was overweight in junior high and high school. I didn't know what healthy habits were. My idea of exercise was turning pages in a book! In college, I lost a lot of weight by not eating much. I was at a healthy weight, but I wasn't healthy.

I am 34 years old, married, and I have two boys, a 14 year old and a 2 year old.
I wasn't overweight as a child, but gained as a teen and was overweight in junior high and high school. I didn't know what healthy habits were. My idea of exercise was turning pages in a book! In college, I lost a lot of weight by not eating much. I was at a healthy weight, but I wasn't healthy.
When I met my husband I picked up a lot of his eating habits and thought I would always be "skinny" and though the pounds crept up over the past 10 years, I was in denial about it. I thought I was eating and exercising ok, and began to make excuses about why I was struggling to lose weight.
I have learned how to eat so much better for my body. Exercising however, is still not my friend. We have a love-hate relationship. I have to force myself to workout. I am at a healthy weight now after being on SP for a few months, but I will always have to work on the fitness aspect.
After struggling with infertility for 2 years, I found a specialist in June 2012 that helped me to fix my diet even more and she swore it would help me to get pregnant. I wasn't overweight but the foods I was eating were contributing to a hormonal imbalance that prevented me from getting pregnant. I am happy to say that it was a success and I have my 2 year old now. We are trying again for number 3!

Thank you for the wonderful comment on my blog! The PB2 is amazing! I put it in oatmeal with honey and cinnamon and it's quite addicting! It really does thicken up like peanut butter! I think it'd work perfect for a shake I'm gonna make a shake for my road trip later! Thanks for the idea! Hope your doing well keep up all your good work! emoticon emoticon emoticon
