Hi! I'm a 30-something mom of three kiddos. When I got pregnant with my oldest I weighed close to 280. Looking at that little sweet face gave me the motivation I needed to get off my couch and never be "the fat mom" I was going to be without a huge life-style change. Since then I've had two more sweet kids and lost 125 pounds.

Hi! I'm a 30-something mom of three kiddos. When I got pregnant with my oldest I weighed close to 280. Looking at that little sweet face gave me the motivation I needed to get off my couch and never be "the fat mom" I was going to be without a huge life-style change. Since then I've had two more sweet kids and lost 125 pounds.

I attend a weekly weight loss group but the program doesn't seem to fit the nutrition needs I have as a home athlete so I did some research into sport's nutrition and changed my eating habits and needed to track calories, carbs, protein and fat... that lead me to trying several on-line tracking sites. So far, I like SparkPeople the best!

**UPDATE 2011** I'm still keeping the weight off and my last pregnancy was 4 1/2years ago (other than pregnancy I've never gained more than a few pounds here or there since having lost weight). My focus these days is multi-sport events. This is the summer of my first Duathlon and Triathlon and I'm so excited! I've worked really hard the last 6+ months for this and I hope it all goes well enough that I will want to keep doing it!

Good morning! I stopped in to log in my breakfast today and saw your comment. I live in the Grants Pass area, and yes, I am super excited to have the sun finally coming out for summer! I love to jog, but I spent most of the winter doing indoor workouts. I did a 3-mile interval jog last weekend, which got me psyched up to do it again! (Man, was I sore afterward...) Almost ready to head out to church as well, so have a great day and I'll cheer you on soon. =P
