My name is LILA (pronounced: Lie+la), I'm proudly number 5 of 11 (yes, biological) children so I used it as my spark name. I am a wife, a someday mother, a full-time hairstylist and a faithful Latter-day Saint. My sister Katrina (skinnysoon13) introduced SP to me in September 2007 after I was frustrated that I just kept gaining weight.... I started steadily gaining after I turned 28, otherwise, I did what ever I wanted. Through laziness and depression from not being able to start a family, I really let myself go but I'm here now. Fast or slow I'm going to reach my goal . . . .
After 9 years of infertility, 2 of those years trying to adopt, my husband Michael and I were finally chosen to adopt a baby BOY born October 14th in Atlanta GA. We got to be there when he was born and feel so blessed! We have an open adoption with his birth mother Courtney and love her very much. here's our family blog, www.michaelandlila.blogspot.com
Ok, and while your celebrating that, add that we were called June 1, 2010 to adopt a little girl from Sacramento California. We named her Cora Grace and she has been a blessing, blessing, blessing ever since! Life is so good.
Good luck in your weight loss journey! God Bless.
I want to feel slim

I was born and raised in los angeles county and camarillo/thousand oaks, california. #5 of 11 children, all biological, plus we had 4 native american foster siblings over the years and unwed mothers that stayed with us periodically till they placed children for adoption. now live and love in murfreesboro, tennessee with my husband, son evan, daughter cora grace, dog smokey and cat oliver.
i love my big family and miss them, as i live 2000 miles from everything about them.
My husband Mike and I have been married since June 1997 and tried to get pregnant since 3/99 with no luck because of fertility issues (the heartache of my life). We now are blessed to adopt. If you know someone who is pregnant and is considering adoption, we are an approved adoptive couple, seeking an infant of any religion/racial back ground, up to 3 months old. You can refer them to: www.itsaboutloveagain.blogspot.com to confidentially contact us and learn more about us. Thank you.

thought I would add my two cents on the how to's with two kids...You remember that you are worth it. You can use them in your workouts...what better way to lift weights than lifting a little one above your head. (great for giggles, too) Most gyms have a playplace for kids. When mine were small, they really enjoyed going to the gym, it was great for socialization for them, too, since I was a SAHM.
Lila, I have much faith in you. BTW, your family is gorgeous!!!!

HA ! I have no idea how to do it with two kids
I only had one kid and I waited until she left for college to start getting my act together, so you are way ahead of the game.
Still your biggest fan
