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.

    Yay! I'm so excited you joined the BLC! The actual challenge doesn't start until June 1st so for now, just get to know your team. The Summer session is actually a much more laid back challenge with weigh ins and optional challenges. Once the Fall session starts it will be a little bit more demanding..but this will get you a good start and get your feet wet before the big one starts! :)

    Haha yeah, see how it goes for him! lol

    I'm already looking into costs and stuff for next year, planning on maybe making a reservation even this early, just one that I don't pay for right away. So I will see how that goes. I should be in CA so I won't have to fly (thankfully!).

    I really want to do the Disney World marathon but that would cost like $1200 minimum for hotel, race fee, and flight alone. Geez lol. I might have to wait till 2018 to do that one or not at all, I'm not sure yet!

    I'm SOOO excited for kayaking! I got this membership last year and just loved it. I like going after work and on weekends I don't have a ton of stuff going on. It's so relaxing plus the paddling gives the arms a great workout. I just love being out on the water after a day at the office. It really brings a lot of peace and feels meditative in a way. :-)
