Taking it easy and living a healthy life for my family!

My name is Andra and I have been a spark member for a while now and lost 65 pounds being an active member. I was away for about 6 months due to my high risk pregnancy and on bedrest for the last 3 months of my pregnancy. On July 15th, 2011 my baby boy, Rylan was born at 35 weeks and 3 days along and didn't need to go to the NICU and was a healthy but a little small at 5 pounds, 9 ounces and 18.5 inches long.

My name is Andra and I have been a spark member for a while now and lost 65 pounds being an active member. I was away for about 6 months due to my high risk pregnancy and on bedrest for the last 3 months of my pregnancy. On July 15th, 2011 my baby boy, Rylan was born at 35 weeks and 3 days along and didn't need to go to the NICU and was a healthy but a little small at 5 pounds, 9 ounces and 18.5 inches long. I am ready to take back my body and would like to improve my lifestyle again. I lost weight before and I will do it again for my baby boy and for me of course!!

**UPDATE AS OF 10/10/13 - I am pregnant with baby #2! Here starts another crazy chapter in our lives and we are excited and feel very blessed to have this happening right now. I am not at the weight I wanted to be at for this pregnancy since this was a surprise but I will do what I can and keep living a healthy life and focus on all aspects of a healthy life. I'm excited to make my son a big brother, how cool is that? I am an only child so I can only imagine! I will probably have another extremely high risk pregnancy due to my issues but I will be fine and I plan on using Spark for what I need but I will stay challenge free for now! Wish us luck and good luck to all!!!

I have been trying to soak in the hot tub after my swims, but I often forget, or simply don't do it because I have a REALLY hard time sitting still. *lol* There will be a whirlpool tub at the B&B this weekend, though, and I fully intend to use it. (A huge 2-person tub?! I might SLEEP in there! *lol*)

Ha, yes Life! Always getting in our way, huh?

Speaking of life, how is the little one of yours?

Holy cow, do I read that correctly? His 1st birthday was yesterday??? When did that happen?!! Little stinkers, need to stop growing so quickly!

I seem to have to always go back to the beginning! Start over...again...at what worked for me before. 15 minutes of exercise a day, tracking everything, losing only a pound or a pound and a half a week. That's what my body likes, and that's what my brain can handle! Minimal pressure so I can stay with it.

How's the summer challenge going? I miss you all!
