I had 2 babies very close together, who I luv luv luuuv! Unfortunately my weight sky rocketed after my second and I reached my highest weight ever.
199 lbs!!
I'm very short (5'1) so that weight on me is like being well over 200 for a taller person. I was sick, all day every day. My blood pressure was high, cholesterol was high, could barely get out of the car or get up the stairs!
Well, last January I HAD IT!! I started walking 10, 15, 20 minutes every day with both babies in a double stroller. The first few months were hard. Sugar withdrawal, cravings, but the results were worth it! And addicting! I've now lost 75 lbs and am working on reaching 85 lbs lost to maintain.

    Cooking does not have to be hard. :-) I often try to find quick recipes using real ingredients (nothing boxed) that take 1/2 hr or less. So much better and really not hard to make at all. The chicken I made last night was super fast and easy. I served it w/ brussels sprouts and rice. It was awesome.
