Mommy Me

I have 8 little ones and the challenge I have faced is coming from a size 4, slim young single woman 11 years ago, to a 260 pound, plus sized mother at my highest weight. Add to that the challenge that we want as many kids as God sends us and they are about 1-1/2 years apart, and that's me. Not much time to lose weight in between, you really can't drag your feet if you want to!

I have 8 little ones and the challenge I have faced is coming from a size 4, slim young single woman 11 years ago, to a 260 pound, plus sized mother at my highest weight. Add to that the challenge that we want as many kids as God sends us and they are about 1-1/2 years apart, and that's me. Not much time to lose weight in between, you really can't drag your feet if you want to!

I started sparkpeople before I was pregnant with my sixth child who was born in December of 2008. I lost all her weight plus a little extra so I knew Sparkpeople worked for me! The good thing is that after having 2 more babies, any additional weight I put on I've lost through Sparkpeople, so I know I can do this if I really stick to it. 5 months after baby is born I always seem to slack off, but this time around having an email buddy and working on solid bootcamps with actual schedules seems to get me ordered properly!

I have had it with how downhill I have come, and am using this time in between pregnancies (and trying to keep up with a lot during pregnancies) to make some progress, set some long term goals and stick to them. This website is awesome for me since it tracks every little thing and it has given me the tools I need to lose weight.

So for me it's been a frustrating 11 years of slowly gaining weight while I am pregnant, losing some for the first couple months after birth, and then not losing anymore. My main goal is to end up being less than I was before my last pregnancy, to make progress rather than continuing down a slippery slope. I would like to get to 160 pounds, which would put me in a good, healthy range for a mother-to-be or nursing. I will see as I get there, maybe lose more? I used to be 115 pounds and a slim size 4/6. I don't want to get back to that, I just want to be healthy and in good shape without a whole load of extra weight. Once I reach my goal of 160, I will probably figure out my ideal weight.

I hope your knee is getting better. I have avoided the Fire 45 for 2 days so I got back on track with today's HIIT 25. It felt good! I worked out hard yesterday but did everything I could find to do in order to not have to kick box for 45 minutes. lol

Hi! Thanks for the comment on my picture...but the baby girl is not mine! I have all boys and currently not expecting any more.

This little girl is the daughter of my "adoptive" church daughter....

CONGRATULATIONS on your little bundle of joy! Such a blessing!!!!
