Intro: Hi SparkPeople!

After having my first 2 babies, I quickly snapped back into shape. In June 2008, I gave birth to my 3rd baby, and this time around, the postpartum weight is stubborn!! I fully admit my faults, as I have developed bad eating habits over the past 2 years.

My goal is to get toned and defined, because I miss my washboard stomach and tight tush! Besides the aesthetics, I am improving my health, attitude, and self-image.

Intro: Hi SparkPeople!

After having my first 2 babies, I quickly snapped back into shape. In June 2008, I gave birth to my 3rd baby, and this time around, the postpartum weight is stubborn!! I fully admit my faults, as I have developed bad eating habits over the past 2 years.

My goal is to get toned and defined, because I miss my washboard stomach and tight tush! Besides the aesthetics, I am improving my health, attitude, and self-image.

To stay motivated, I will train for a marathon, learn how to swim, and push myself beyond my limits. I am determined to carve out a NEW LIFE, chasing new challenges, to keep the experience fresh and interesting.

Now that I am more focused then ever, I'm happier. My enthusiasm is contagious, 'cause my hubby is in it with me now. I'm done procrastinating.

This is a life change. I plan to get back in - and remain - in shape. Mainly, my goal is to create a new relationship with myself, where I no longer criticize and focus on flaws from child bearing, but instead on all of the blessings that make me priceless.

Personal Information:
Was naturally slim and toned all of my life. However, from 2006 to 2008, I gained about 10 to15 pounds of fat, and lost a lot of muscle. Then gave birth to my 3rd child in Summer 2008.



During the pregnancy, I was on bed rest, and BLEW UP, partly my fault due to developing serious bad habits, a sweet tooth, and becoming a salt monger!



I managed to lose most of the baby weight, but that last 20 was and still is stubborn as hell.



I also need to develop my muscle tone again.

____________________



Other Information:
All of my teens and 20s, I never owned a scale. Instead, I'd subconsciously pay attention to my body. If clothes felt tight, I'd simply make slight changes. With an intuitive approach, I chose the path with least guilt. For instance, at a young age I'd choose yogurt and not ice cream, celery w/ranch instead of fries, and peeled skin off of the chicken wings.



Never did I deprive myself. I'd graze and not binge. I'd savor, rather than devour.



A major element of staying slim most of my life is that I LOVED my body. Therefore, I made an effortless effort to honor it. Paying attention to what affected my weight was far more effective than staring at a scale.

Thanks for the blog comment. Timing is funny. I hadn't thought of that article in a long time, and then today I summarized it in response to someone's message board post.
