I've always hated being overweight and having to look at all that extra weight when I look in the mirror, but I was never really motivated enough to actually do anything about it. I lost about 30 lbs using SP a few years ago, fell off the wagon when I went on vacation and never managed to get back into the swing of working out & eating right on a regular basis. Add a new baby and buying a home into the mix, and the result was me gaining back about 20 pounds. Now, however, I have fresh motivation and am in this for the long haul.

Weight tracking (not from the very beginning):
5/21/11 - 191.10 lbs
5/28/11 - 185.3 lbs (had a stomach virus)
6/4/11 - 182.6 lbs (thanks, C25K!)

8/1/11 - 188.2 (gotta get off my butt!)
9/19/11 - 191.6 lbs (thanks, broken toe & exhaustion!)
9/26/11 - 190.8 lbs
10/3/11 - 189.6 lbs

Thanks! I just read your last blog...5 weeks to lose most of the baby weight?! I am totally jealous. The baby is nearly 9 months old, and I'm finally within 2 lbs of my pre-baby weight. Good for you, though!!!
