After getting sworn in to the Supreme Court Bar, with DH (June 2015)
Summer 2010, post-two kids -- probably the least flattering picture I have of myself
Halfway through pregnancy #3, getting ready to run a 10k! (Oct 2013)
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Between 2007 and 2011, I gained two children -- and 68 pounds. I kept looking back, filled with regret at not having done something about this weight gain sooner, but looking back didn't propel me forward. Before kids, I loved being a healthy and fit person, and I looked forward to being healthy and fit -- and loving it -- again. I joined here in 2010, but started over for all intents and purposes in March 2012. As of April 2013, I was 58 pounds down, with 10ish to go.
In March 2014, I had my third (and final) child and found myself with 30-35ish pounds to lose. Thanks to professional obligations, sandwich generation family challenges, and two job changes, I have proceeded to lose and regain the same 10 pounds three times since. At this point, life is pretty stable, and I just want to get back to where I'm happy with my fitness level/health/endurance/appearance again.
