Shared Fitness Tracker
Hello! I joined SparkPeople in September 2006. Until then I'd had moderate success trying to get in shape on my own. I achieved my goal in December 1st 2006, and held on to maintenance for over a year, but stopped tracking and only using SparkPeople sporadically and the weight crept back on.
In January 2012, I reset my ticker and joined a martial arts gym for some kickboxing classes. That didn't last long - I soon found out I was pregnant! My little girl was born Dec. 31. 2012, and I can't even explain how amazing she is.
As of the fall 2014, I'm stuck hovering around 135lb. My goal is to be between 120 - 125lb. It's not a huge way to go, but for some reason, I'm really struggling to lose the last bit of baby weight. With a now-toddler, it's tough to find time for a real workout, but she loves to jump and dance so I jump and dance along with her. I've got a Spark People Activity Tracker that I wear everywhere i go, and that helps me know where I'm at. Day by day, I'll get there!
Weight: 120-125 lbs.
Appearance: Better muscle tone, and overall strength. Do what I can to get rid of the post-baby belly.

I SURAH HOPE you HOPPED back onto the team ! I LOVE ur blog,,, for it shows how your thinking has been,,, where you'd like to make changes. The best way for support is to hit the teams chat thread (buzz around the airport) and also to blog,, and as you can,, with ur D its not always easy,, to hit a few other blogs. If ur D is having a snack,, and ur not really hungry, but find urself reaching for a snack absentmindedly,,,, that's a GREAT TIME to read a blog,, make a comment,, and the eating extra is GONE ! Or if your not around the puter,, how about doing some work around the room ur in?
