Hello, Everyone! I am Stephanie. ~9.26.2015~ Well here I am 5 1/2 months after the birth if my final baby. I only gained 10lbs with the pregnancy and I lost 15lbs and now I am boucing between 194 and 190 the last 5 months. I believe it''s the breastfeeding that''s keeping my weight stable as I have been emotionally eating. It''s been hard trying to incorporate working out with 2 under two as a single mother. But where there''s a will there''s a way! ~1/20/2015~ I wasn''t doing so great the last time I was here after my last pregnancy. Well I got pregnant again and I am expecting my third and final baby girl in May. My weight climbed back up to 194 after not getting back on the weightloss band wagon. Besides looking for a career I enjoy I want to get back to losing this weight. ~2/21/2014~ I am back on SP after roughly an eight month hiatus due to pregnancy and birth of my baby girl. I was 174lbs when I had my first Dr. appt. and I got up to 195 when I had her, so a 21lb gain. I had my daughter on 12.31.2014 and I lost most of the weight and was down to 175. However, not being able to work out and not eating good I gained 4lbs by 6 week checkup. So now I am 179 and I want to still lose the rest of this weight and get down to my goal of 146. It�s hard getting back to the habits I acquired at the beginning of 2012 but I did it before and I WILL do it again. ~7/16/2013~ At this point I have lost 43lbs from my highest of 215 Glad I lost that would have been nice to had lost more in a year and a half of trying to change my way of eating and working out, but alas it''s a loss. Now onto a new chapter. I will be taking a hiatus from SP. Not sure how many people will notice!? I am now 31/2 months pregnant and not getting anything from SP at all. I am due in January so as soon as I am cleared to workout I will be back! Hopefully, February 2014. ~1/7/2013~ A New Year and I got back on my game and lost 4lbs in December! I am as ACTIVE as ever on SP and I am going to keep giving what I got. It''s almost a year later since I got back to Sparking and I am down 27lbs. My goal is to lose 38lbs in 2013 to reach my goal of 146! ~8.28.2012~ Well I have been back on SP for 8 months now and I have lost 21lbs. it''s been a battle the last few months but I am still hanging in there tracking and exercisng. ~*1.10.2012*~ Why am I here? When I put my mind to things such as education and work I get on it and succeed. However, my climbing weight is something I just can''t seem to conquer. I have been on Sparkpeople waay too long not to be making progress, but then again I need to actually utilize it! I am going all in this time around, accumulating spark points everyday, tracking food, exercising and getting my daily 8 glasses of H2o! I am also blogging once a week. What changed my mind this time? I have been thinking about getting the lap band done for the last two years and I realized I have to give it a REAL honest effort to lose weight. Too many people have lost 100+ lbs on their own for me not give it my best effort. Congrats to all the ones who have lost, another bigs ups to the ones still losing and to the ones starting, you are not alone! So here I am!

Member Since: 9/19/2007

Fitness Minutes: 23,899

My Goals:
Eating whole lot healthier and Exercise!!!

My highest recorded weight was 214lbs, BMI 42(Morbidly Obese)

New Starting weight 210, BMI 41.0 on December 29, 2011.

1. 199 , BMI 39; Obese range ******MET 3.11.2012

2. 189 , BMI 36.9*****1st Time 7.27.2012

3. 179, BMI 35 ******1st time 1/22/2013

4. 169, BMI 33

5. 164, BMI 32; {50lb loss mark from 214}

6. 153, BMI 29.9 {Goal Weight} (this will take me out of the obese range into the overweight range)

I will be VERY HAPPY at 153lbs, HOWEVER, I wouldn't mind getting to 146 because that would be 1lb less than the 147lbs, the lowest weight I ever remember being in my adult life.
At this point in my life I don't care to be small I just want to be comfortable in my skin again.


My Program:
Stay within my calorie range.

Trying to go to as much of a clean diet as I can go to. Baby steps!

45 mins of exercise 5 days a week.

GET MY strength training in at LEAST two days a week but my goal is three days.

    Don't even think about dropping out! If you do I will haunt you!! emoticon With 2 little ones I know it's tough, but just being on a team is an encouragement. Your cousin is right, exercise may be out of the question at times, but better nutrition is possible, you need to buy food, your choice to make it junk or healthy. The last couple rounds I ended up gaining over each round. Geckos or more concerned with the process and support and not about the numbers. The Geckos have always been understanding about posting on the chat thread. Get there when you can!!! Even if you end up as a floater you can still post on the chat thread. Support is what you need!!! If you do decide you need to quit the challenge, I will check in with you to help you stay on track!!! You need to stay healthy and strong for all 3 of your kids!!! emoticon
