Ready for Change

So I'm back! I was here in 2009 (as you can tell from my name) and had good success with SP. Went from 190 to 170. Then, I was in the 170s for the longest time and just complacent with my weight. In May 2011 I got pregnant (yay!) and at that time the scale read 184.

Fast forward- January 1, 2012- our baby boy arrives. Awesome! the scale on the day I had him was 224. On the day I came home with him, 211.

On March 4, I joined Weight Watchers- I was 204 and within 3-4 ...

On March 4, I joined Weight Watchers- I was 204 and within 3-4 months I got down to 175.

Since the autumn of 2012 I've slowly climbed up the scale and was at 194 in the spring of 2013.

Such is the never-ending struggle. Can I stop this insanity and be naturally slim? Can I work through my issues with my body and food? I'm sure many women can identify with this struggle - and I would love to connect with you and share stories (and hopefully successes!).

My ultimate goal is 145. But right now, I'm setting my sites on 160.

I love PiYo and am so glad that I purchased it. It's a great combination of yoga, Pilates (and really not a lot of that) and just the strength moves and the stretching. I am feeling great!

Hi... I just saw your comment on my blog on the 3 Day Refresh. I can not say enough about that program. I loss 7 pounds and only gianed 1 pound back so far. I felt the best I have ever felt on something like that. I have done the Shakeology clense before... I was so hungry the whole time and only loss 3 pounds.
I have been watching what I eat and using the 21 day fix program to stay on track with my eating. it was a great way to countiue the clean eating you do on the 3 day refresh. I hope you have great sucess with it :) let me know if you have any questions.
