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.

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!

Hey there!
Sounds like you are having some luck with your treadmill! I managed 3 walks this week so far so that is an improvement over most weeks these past few months. I'm feeling better getting off the white stuff this week. Though I have a slight headache today. Hopefully that improves as time goes by. I'm excited to stock up on some good veggies this weekend and try a few new recipes. I'm going for Franks Red Hot mixed with shredded chicken and cream cheese for the super bowl! I'm going to make some homemade low carb tortilla chips and celery sticks to serve with it. Yum! emoticon

How are you feeling this week? I see you've hit the treadmill! Nice job :0) I'm feeling a little lost this week. But I've changed my ticker from weight lost to fitness minutes. I've decided that if I'm going to weigh 170 that I want to be the fittest 170 I can be. I want to be a runner again. And so I'm putting away my scale for the next month or two and instead I will do some measurements and check those instead. I want what is important to me to be getting strong and active. Part of that is feeding an athlete's body and for that I'm going to try an 80/20 split with the goal being to stop having binges on sweets and eating them like I'm never going to have one again. I hate it. Some months are worse than others for that.

I think maybe the best thing for you is to just set some mini goals and slowly work your way back to where you want to be. I've really focused on mini goals...even smaller than small goals! I've spent a lot of the last few months failing at what I want to achieve because in my head what seems small is really monumental when implemented in real life. Keep It Small to Stick With It ALL!!!
