I AM ON A SERIOUS POST-PREGO WEIGHT-LOSS MISSION!!
Ok, that was my introduction when I first started with Sparkpeople but since then ( End of Aug. 2010 ) I have lost over 20 lbs putting me below pre - prego weight :)...Mission accomplished!!
I live in Canada with my wonderful husband and new son - I have always been active, but can't say I was always leading a healthy lifestyle! You could say I over-indulged in food and wine...I am pleased to say that I have changed all that with clean eating and only drinking occasionally.
These changes have had a great impact on my life, as I find that I have much more energy to focus on my passions in life - My son, and my running!
