I remember the day when I realized that I needed to change my life. I had gained a lot of weight while I was pregnant with my son. While I was still in the hospital, a nurse came around and weighed me. I remember thinking to myself, "well, I must be much lighter than before - there's no baby in there anymore!" When the number 200 came up on the scale, I almost fainted. I knew that my weight had gotten a little out of hand while I was pregnant, but I didn't realize how far it had gone.

I remember the day when I realized that I needed to change my life. I had gained a lot of weight while I was pregnant with my son. While I was still in the hospital, a nurse came around and weighed me. I remember thinking to myself, "well, I must be much lighter than before - there's no baby in there anymore!" When the number 200 came up on the scale, I almost fainted. I knew that my weight had gotten a little out of hand while I was pregnant, but I didn't realize how far it had gone.

I left the hospital determined to lose the weight, but as usual, life (and a new baby!) got in the way. It was slow going for a while, but about 6 months after I had my son, I re-united with Fred, (we had dated in high school) now my husband. Getting back into the dating scene after being a single mom gave me the extra motivation I needed to get myself back into shape!

Fred proposed in July of 2007. At the time I was about 165 pounds and I was determined to lose some more weight so I could look beautiful on my wedding day. I dropped another 35-40 pounds for our wedding, in May of 2008.

Now my focus has gone from losing all the weight to learning how to make these lasting changes in my life. I am a confessed yo-yo dieter, and despite losing all the weight I still struggle daily to not go off the deep end and eat everything I can get my hands on. It's a learning process and each setback I encounter makes me stronger!
