One Day At A Time

I am a 36 yr old mom to a beautiful (almost 3yr old) little girl and expecting another in Dec 2014. I am also with the most wonderful man in the world and couldn't be any happier.

This past year I've had spurts where I really did well and then seem to just maintain the rest of the time. Now that I'm expecting I'm really going to have to dig deep and keep myself in check so I don't gain a ton of weight. I know what I'm actually capable of and with the help of all my great spark ...

This past year I've had spurts where I really did well and then seem to just maintain the rest of the time. Now that I'm expecting I'm really going to have to dig deep and keep myself in check so I don't gain a ton of weight. I know what I'm actually capable of and with the help of all my great spark friends I know I'll get there...one day at a time!

Growing up I never had problems with weight but then I became a pregnant teen and put on over 100 lbs b/c of the stress and heartache of giving my baby up for adoption.
Ever since then I have been on the weight loss roller coaster. Just once in my life it would be nice to drop ALL the weight and never be on that ride again, lol.

I know I could think of several excuses as to why I can't overcome all the obstacles that stand in my way but I know I need to push those aside and fight for what I deserve....what my family deserves!

Oopsies, I edited it now to account for the rubber band part, for each "good" eating day I get a rubber band, yay. :) Thanks as always for the encouragement!

Hey! Yes, I've seen Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. That's something different. I've done a 30-day juice fast before which is similar to what the guy did in the documentary. It was a spiritual fast though and I wouldn't have been able to do it if it was just for natural weight loss. What I did for the 10-days this time was a smoothie cleanse. Smoothies are not juice. All the nutrition, fiber and everything is intact. It's blended food. It's healthy to drink smoothies, even while pregnant... but probably not healthy to detox. Ask your doctor about it.

Mayo Clinic put out this article

it seems no sweetener is much better than another- it's just one thing or another.... not even honey is good for children under the age of one....I guess less is best be it natural or artificial emoticon
