From Fat Blob to Hot Mom...

1/27/15 -New Intro:

I've been on this journey for over 3 years. It all started when I found out I was pregnant with my first child. Obviously while I was pregnant I couldn't start exercising but I did watch my food intake. My highest weight before pregnancy was 251lbs. I use that as my starting weight because my pregnancy had nothing to do with how heavy I already was to begin with.

I've been on this journey for over 3 years. It all started when I found out I was pregnant with my first child. Obviously while I was pregnant I couldn't start exercising but I did watch my food intake. My highest weight before pregnancy was 251lbs. I use that as my starting weight because my pregnancy had nothing to do with how heavy I already was to begin with.

Once I had my son, I began slowly walking 5 days a week and kept eating better. After a couple of months I had lost about 20-25lbs. I was VERY excited but was starting to lose traction so I decided to join SparkPeople for accountability. What I didn't realize was how much I NEEDED SP! The support here is amazing! With the help of SP I was able to get to my lowest (so far) weight as an adult! 178lbs!!! I was over the MOON!

THEN...

I got pregnant again. And gained almost ALL of my weight back :( Oops...

So here I am! Half way through this journey (AGAIN!) to my ULTIMATE goal weight! I WILL reach my goal this year and I can't wait!

I'm going to start posting my weight on the side of my page for extra accountability. I hope I can inspire as many as possible! Being healthy is so totally worth all the hard work!!!

Gosh, THANK YOU for the sweetest comments today! I can't tell you how good it feels to know that not only is my persistence helping me, but sharing my journey with others is helping people like you along the way, too! It's hard to think of myself as a motivational person since I haven't lost a significant amount of weight yet, and I'm DEFINITELY not perfect, but I just keep trying! "Thank you for being a frieeeeeeend!" HA! :)

You are so right about not even being to see the picture, it would be so small that it wouldn't really be recognizeable! :) Thanks so much for mentioning that, I even edited the blog to add that. I am thinking just maybe if I tell her what is going on, maybe I can get her to make a 1 with her finger and I can make two zero's with my hand so it would read "100", and then of course take a normal picture. The good news is it's going to take forever for me to lose these 20 something pounds, so I have plenty of time. Now I just need to lose the weight *giggles*. I hope you have a great day and thanks so much for the support! :D
