Boom! Had a baby 3 weeks ago. Now I''m ready to start sparking again :) I''d like to lose 56 more pounds. I have less time to create my charts and graphs this go around but i took all my measurements and am tracking my food starting today. I''m excited to get back in the pool too, hopefully Update: 3 months into it. Going great! The mini goal, within a time frame, is really working for me. Now I have 47 pounds to lose, but taking it one pound at a time. Update: 125 days in, 40# gone, 43 to go. And I''ve added exercise to my regimen. Yay me! Update: just gotta add, i hit the halfway mark and I zipped under 190, haven''''t seen this weight in YEARS! 43# gone, 39# to go. Also, I''m a breakfast convert. Having protein and fat in the am helps control my appetite for the rest of the day. Also, I got that Japanese organizational guru''s book and am excited to implement her strategies. Update: 8/16/15 just got my 150 day streak trophy this morning. 45# down. I feel great! Update : 9/5/15 as of this morning, I have lost 50# I can''t believe it yet. I don''t want to jinx it, but I think I see some light at the end of the tunnel :) Update: 11/9/15 WOW!! I am wearing size 12 pants! I am never ever taking them off :) well maybe for a pair of size 10s... Update: 1/7/16 So cookies..yeah.. I'm back to tracking full time and I've refocused on my goals. Minimal damage (6#) and that is not the focus. I'm happy to be here :) Update: 1/26/16 I am currently in love with and slightly manic about exercise - currently 4# above my low. So close to a non-obese bmi! Update: 3/15/16 Did this gal just sign up for a 5k? Haha! I can't believe I'm a "runner" just NSV for this update. I think I lost an inch on my waist and another on my hips. I am focused on fitness. Update: 8-31-16. I ran the 5k, I am officially off nicotine gum and I gained #20 that I worked so hard to lose. I'm desperately trying to refocus on my weight loss goals. Deep breath, I can do this!

My Program:
My program is to eat fewer calories than I burn every day. I will achieve this by logging my food to keep me honest. I also will exersize and drink lots of water.

Personal Information:
Mother, wife, Wisconsinite. I have struggled with my weight since I was six years old. I was able to lose a lot for my wedding but having children, quiting smoking and getting older meant I gained a lot back. Spark people has been the best tool for permanent weight loss for me, this journey doesn't feel temporary, its mostly joyful. Very different from every other weight loss attempts.

Other Information:
If I applied the amount of energy I spend reading books to exercise, I would have nothing to worry about :) This statement would also be true about the time i spend on Facebook.
