I was always the petite little one that my friends envied. Then I became pregnant with my daughter (now 6). I had medical issues during pregnancy and was put on bed rest for the last two months. Let me tell you -- it's easy to put on weight when all you do is lay in bed 24/7 for two month and eat "craving" food! 3 days after having my daughter I found out my husband, a US soldier, would be deployed for a year. Enter stress eating.... I ballooned to almost 200lbs on a 5'2" frame. While he was gone I hit rock bottom and decided to make a change. I worked hard, mostly dieting, and lost a little over 60lbs. I maintained this weight for a few months, then slowly the scale started creeping again until suddenly (it seems) I had regained 30+ of those 60 lost pounds. Now, I am making the attempt again. This time I am doing it right with diet AND exercise, and hoping to learn how to KEEP the weight off, not just temporarily. I hope that Spark can help keep me motivated and inspired to stay on track and reach my goals!
