Met my goals, now just staying healthy!

I'm a 24 year old SAHM and wife. We have 2 boys Gunnar is 5 and Maverick is 3. I've lost 73+lbs from when I first started dieting in October 2009 (230lbs) and now I'm focusing on staying healthy and fit.

I'm 5'10''. I started dieting on my own in October 2009 when I was at my highest weight for not being pregnant 230lbs. I got down to 218 on my own, when I decided to join SparkPeople. Since then I've been on a strict diet. I started by exercising every other day. Since Feb. I've been exercising EVERY single day. I have been doing Jillian Michael's DVDs: 30 Day Shred, No More Trouble Zones, Banish Fat Boost Metabolism, Yoga Meltdown, Shred It with Weights, and 6 Weeks Abs. I use my treadmill for 30 mintues each time I exercise as well. I usually aim to burn 500+ calories a session and aim to do one session a day. I also try and get outside and be active with my boys.

Before my diet I was using food as my crutch, celebration, and as a friend. Now I only use food as fuel. I find other things to calm myself or to make myself feel better.
