Training for Life

I've struggled with my weight as long as I can remember. In high school and the first half of college, I was overweight/borderline obese. Since then, I've managed to gain a little bit of control, but I doubt this is every something that will come easily to me.

I became a mom in February! I also gained 50 lbs in the nine months leading up to that. I'm now at/below my pre-pregnancy weight, and trying to drop a few more before I go into maintenance mode. I think I'll likely have to ...
I've struggled with my weight as long as I can remember. In high school and the first half of college, I was overweight/borderline obese. Since then, I've managed to gain a little bit of control, but I doubt this is every something that will come easily to me.

I became a mom in February! I also gained 50 lbs in the nine months leading up to that. I'm now at/below my pre-pregnancy weight, and trying to drop a few more before I go into maintenance mode. I think I'll likely have to track my calories for years before I get the hang of all of this. It's totally worth it though, especially if I can be a good role model for my daughter. I'm hoping that all this comes a little more naturally to her, though, and that she never has to struggle with her weight and body image the way I have.

Update: I'm about 10 lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight, and trying to transition into maintenance. I still don't really know where a happy weight for me is, so even though I though I'd maintain at 145, my body seems to want to keep dropping the weight. That's cool. I'm going to keep tracking my food and just roll with it :)
