Alright, I'm back and ready to do this!!!!! AGAIN!
During my pregnancy I gained almost 50 lbs. :( I know, I stopped exercising as much and gave in to my craving. So far, I've lost about 27 lbs bring my current weight to 249. I have to lose 20 lbs to get to my lowest weight of 228 which I reached last June after 6 hard months of lifestyle changes. I know I can do this again and I have set new goals for myself as well. I cannot fully exercise until I receive the go ahead at my h6 week apt because my delivery was c-section ...

I cannot fully exercise until I receive the go ahead at my h6 week apt because my delivery was c-section but I am calorie counting and doing small exercising starting today! I cant wait to get back to the gym and I am determined to lose the 20lbs before I return to the gym.
WE CAN DO THIS!!!!!
62lbs gone forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Current Weight: 230 down from 292.5!
I will never be that big again. I guarantee it! NEVER.
Here's a little background on me:
I've been fat all my life. I knew nothing about nutrition-it wasn't something that big value was placed on in my family unfortunately. So starting this mission is me learning how to eat from the very beginning. I never was one to eat a lot of food-I just ate the wrong things.
My new "lifestyle" regimen is basically just eating veggies, lean protein, fruit and whole wheats. I do count calories and I watch my intake of sugar, sodium and carbs to make sure I don't go over the daily allowance. I make sure to eat 3 meals and 2 snacks everyday. So I'm never really hungry. Oddly enough-I haven't had any strong cravings since I started this diet (and I was a chocolate Fiend!).
My highest weight ever was 292-this was actually my starting weight on Jan 1st 09'. When I saw that on the scale-I literally cried. And that day, I put my weight loss plan into full drive.
I totally feel that for me, losing weight was more of a mental thing than anything else. I've never been this determined!!
To be honest with myself and my fellow sparkers-I am somewhat of a slave to the scale. I weigh myself twice a week because I like to know where I stand so if I need to add/remove/alter something in my diet or exercise. This is not good-but it's my truth right now. I am aiming to be in the healthy range (Bmi) at the end of my journey.
