Muse Is Moving!

My name is Erin. I am a teacher, mom of two boys (four and one), and wife. I am an avid runner who has completed many road races. My goal is to get back into pre-pregnancy shape.

My weightloss journey has been long. I started losing weight back in May of 2000. I weigh 220 pounds. I joined Weight Watchers, and by my wedding day I weighed 160 pounds. Unfortunately, I gained a few love pounds in the first few months of my marriage. Luckily, I have a supportive husband who was ...

My weightloss journey has been long. I started losing weight back in May of 2000. I weigh 220 pounds. I joined Weight Watchers, and by my wedding day I weighed 160 pounds. Unfortunately, I gained a few love pounds in the first few months of my marriage. Luckily, I have a supportive husband who was with me through thick and thin, so I was able to get to 157 pounds when I got pregnant with my oldest. Unfortunately, I was really restrictive with my diet, so I gained a ton of weight during my first pregnancy. After having my son, I weighed in again at 225 pounds. I had gained all the weight plus five pounds. Ack! I continued on the path of changing my life for the better, so I incorporated my favorite foods into my lifestyle. I worked on eating the correct portions, and exercising. By the time my oldes was two, I weighed 145 pounds. The smallest I had been since middle school/freshman year of high school. During that time, I got pregnant again. My lifestyle was overall healthy, so I continued to eat right and exercise. I ran two half marathons while I was pregnant, and gained forty-five pounds. I did not go back over the 200 mark. I was really excited. My body is like a turtle. I lose weight slow and steadily. I am ok with this because this is a lifestyle change, not a quick fix.

With that, my middle sister started using sparkpeople and asked if I would try it out with her. I am always interested in weightloss information, so I jumped at the chance. I am really excited about this program because it allows me to look more indepth at the whole picture. I have complete confidence that I will get back to my pre-pregnancy weight!

My Goals:
Returning to my pre-pregnancy weight of 145.

Incorporating more calcium into my diet.

Incorporating strength training into my already great cardio plan.

My Program:
So far, thanks to the nutritional breakdown on sparkpeople, I have started drinking more milk. I start my morning with a glass of milk while I get ready for work. I have found drinking milk has actually filled me up a little more than I realized. It has been a great bonus to my breakfast.

I really like what sparkpeople does regarding strength training. I have been doing these strength training exercises, and I notice it has helped my running.

Yes, it is hard to "run" Bay to Breakers, at least for the first mile. Thanks for stopping in!
