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.

    Thanks for commenting on my walk post. Yeah, I am glad it is not super-hot here yet as you know my stance about the treadmill. LOL! I am really loving the evening walks as it is not as hot as in the middle of the day and it gets me calm for bedtime and all that. A good way to end the day.

    Hi, you left a comment in my blog :)
    I'm a mom too, but also in college. I'm on summer break, officially, but I'll lose my mind without something to do. My fiance is going to be staying home to watch our son while I work. He's supposed to try and find a part time job for hours I do not work, though :)

    Thank you so much for the comments on my blog post. Thankfully I won't be totally solo on my! I'll have a group of musicians backing me but they are wayyy more seasoned and better than my old band so I am nervous about screwing up or looking bad.

    Ugh, yeah, I am going to make sure to eat protein before my next training session. I'm usually pretty good about it but wasn't feeling hungry. Big mistake. That plus the heat factored in sure did not help at all.

    Feeling much better today. I'm going to be sure to take a long walk tonight as it does really help. :-)
