This is my "before" picture, although I had already lost about seven pounds when it was taken (April 7, 2010).





My first time rock climbing. I'm down 30 lbs. in this pic. Does this harness make my butt look big?





My new (used) bike! I am down 25 lbs. in this pic.

Sandra's Story

I never had a problem with weight until I became pregnant in 2005, at age 25. I gained 55 pounds. I lost twenty pounds after having my first son, but then, 17 months later, I had my second son. I lost twenty pounds again. I didn't try hard to lose the rest for a while, as life was hectic with two babies. But, in 2010 I had enough. I began a weight loss competition in March and started the Couch to 5K running program in April. By July, I had lost all my "pregnancy weight" and ran my first ...
I never had a problem with weight until I became pregnant in 2005, at age 25. I gained 55 pounds. I lost twenty pounds after having my first son, but then, 17 months later, I had my second son. I lost twenty pounds again. I didn't try hard to lose the rest for a while, as life was hectic with two babies. But, in 2010 I had enough. I began a weight loss competition in March and started the Couch to 5K running program in April. By July, I had lost all my "pregnancy weight" and ran my first 5K. I felt AWESOME!!! I was only attending school throughout that time, so it made it easy to keep track of what I ate, and have plenty of time to exercise. When I started a full time job that August, I lost control again and slowly fell back into old habits. I currently am back up to my 2010 starting weight. I am off work for the summer and am currently getting back into my weight loss regimen. My main goal will be to get this weight off once and for all!!! I am going to strive to keep my habits and NOT LOSE CONTROL AGAIN!!! My biggest challenge has been not eating at home. A lot of days we come home, only to leave again before having time to fix a healthy supper, for ballgames, etc. So, I am going to work hard this summer to lose weight and develop a NO-FAIL lifestyle that I can carry through all year, even when times are hectic.

My Goals:
I would like to get down to 125 pounds. When I get to that point I hope that I am physically fit and I hope to be able to maintain that weight. My main focus is on my health. I also want my family to be healthy. My eleven-year-old stepson is obese (according to the CDC) and I would like to impact him in a positive way and help to keep him healthy!

My Program:
It worked in 2010, so it should work now- I tried to keep my daily calorie county between 1000-1200. I trained for a 5K, and I did strength training three times a week. I tried to keep active. I use Spark People to keep track of EVERYTHING I eat. So, that's what I have started doing again, and hopefully I will be successful.

Personal Information:
I am a wife and mother of three boys. We live in a beautiful part of rural eastern Kentucky. I work at the local Middle School.

Hi "neighbor"! Just wanted to check in and see how your week is starting off.

I'm giving myself major kudos today... I remembered to put the trash out by the curb this morning. This is especially important when you have a week's worth of baby diapers in it! LOL!

Hope you have a great week!
