...This Time Around!

So it's been two years since I started this journey with Sparkpeople and I have to say I'm ashamed. I have become a statistic. I'm one of those people who loose weight and then gain it back over a couple years.

In April of 2008 I started with Sparkpeople at nearly 200 lbs and over the course of 5 months I lost about 25 lbs. I felt great! I had energy, I was strong, I was actually starting to run (a HUGE feat for me!) and enjoy it. Then we (my DH and I) got pregnant. We were ...

In April of 2008 I started with Sparkpeople at nearly 200 lbs and over the course of 5 months I lost about 25 lbs. I felt great! I had energy, I was strong, I was actually starting to run (a HUGE feat for me!) and enjoy it. Then we (my DH and I) got pregnant. We were happy and I went thru my pregnancy following most of the things I had learned here on spark. I only gained 20 lbs and I was so proud of myself. After I had my son, apparently I felt like I deserved a reward and went off the deep end.

Here's where things get ugly! Cookies, cakes, and CHOCOLATES, Oh My!! Then Halloween came and all that comes with it. Then the holidays and all that yummy, butter-loaded food; not to mention CHRISTMAS COOKIES!

And that brings us to the present. Fat again, here I stand ready to find my spark again. Only this time I have less time to devote to exercise, seeing as the extra child and his clingy, hold-me nature. I vow to do my best, which is all I can do afterall. Ok, time to get going on this. Wish me luck!
