Doing this for a new reason

I am 34 years old, married, and I have two boys, a 14 year old and a 2 year old.
I wasn't overweight as a child, but gained as a teen and was overweight in junior high and high school. I didn't know what healthy habits were. My idea of exercise was turning pages in a book! In college, I lost a lot of weight by not eating much. I was at a healthy weight, but I wasn't healthy.

I am 34 years old, married, and I have two boys, a 14 year old and a 2 year old.
I wasn't overweight as a child, but gained as a teen and was overweight in junior high and high school. I didn't know what healthy habits were. My idea of exercise was turning pages in a book! In college, I lost a lot of weight by not eating much. I was at a healthy weight, but I wasn't healthy.
When I met my husband I picked up a lot of his eating habits and thought I would always be "skinny" and though the pounds crept up over the past 10 years, I was in denial about it. I thought I was eating and exercising ok, and began to make excuses about why I was struggling to lose weight.
I have learned how to eat so much better for my body. Exercising however, is still not my friend. We have a love-hate relationship. I have to force myself to workout. I am at a healthy weight now after being on SP for a few months, but I will always have to work on the fitness aspect.
After struggling with infertility for 2 years, I found a specialist in June 2012 that helped me to fix my diet even more and she swore it would help me to get pregnant. I wasn't overweight but the foods I was eating were contributing to a hormonal imbalance that prevented me from getting pregnant. I am happy to say that it was a success and I have my 2 year old now. We are trying again for number 3!

Working on these!

I also have a new treadmill that I can program for training and I am using that 3-4 times a week minimum.

What are your plans for the 4th? We are back at the cabin until at least Sunday and may stay until Monday. We are doing a 5k on Saturday so that will be good. Fingers crossed on making good food choices!

And my race was challenging but good. We did every obstacle including the turtle trap with was the thickest mud ever- people were losing their shoes in it! My quads are super sore from trying to pull my foot out to take each step!

I am really glad you had a great trip! I agree with you that while vacation is fun it's always nice to be back home- especially with toddlers and nap schedules etc. and only being up 1 lb is great- water weight easy! You got this week in the bag!

Yes that was the light one! Lower cal and no fat but killer on sugar. The iced latte has only 8 g sugar. Who knew! Save it for a rare treat I guess! :0)
