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!!!

Thanks for the blog comments! Yes, I'm glad I had enough time in to not really want to turn to junk food or some kind of binge to help cope! My rest day is Sunday, however, depending on how I feel, I might trade rest day to tomorrow and get back on it Sunday!

Oooh! I love your combos!!! Those are some great videos. Les Mills is a top one for me now. I love doing it!

As for running, I've always loved doing it. It is fun and I will very likely head back out for bonus workouts when it is warming up. Maybe put the family on bikes so I can run!
