Maintaining

Hi! Originally, I joined Sparkpeople to work on losing 15 pounds, stubborn pounds that I can't keep off. Then I gained weight through two pregnancies. Now, I have Graves disease, and I'm seeking to manage it appropriately without taking too drastic of measures. And without losing TOO much weight. Funny how life's perspective changes sometimes!

I have 3 boys, 1 girl, a husband, five chickens, a rabbit, and a dog, and I work from home. Sometimes I NEED to get out.

Just wanted to welcome you to the Intuitive Eating team! IE is a great concept to utilize when pregnant, what a wonderful opportunity to get in touch with your body when growing a new life! I find it extremely liberating NOT to worry about tracking calories and what foods to eat. Just following intuition and listening to my body is the way to go,it is tough to build up a trust after so many years of "dieting" but it can happen!!!

Anytime you need anything, don't hesitate to post on the team. There is a lot of knowledge and insight there!

Also check out the intuitive eating website. They have a lot of great information on there as well! I can't wait to get to know you more, sounds like we have a bit in common (SAH, 4th pregnancy). Such a fun time!
