Getting healthy for my daughter

I've been on and off Spark for several years now. And I have some extra lbs to show for it.

I gave birth to my daughter, Eva, on April 11, 2014. I weighed 200 lbs when I got pregnant and was at 240 when I checked into the hospital. By the time I came home, I was at 220 lbs. I am starting my weight loss journey at 213 lbs. The 15 pregnancy pounds don't bother me so much, it's the 60 extra pre-pregnancy pounds that I want to get rid of!

More than anything, I want to be healthy for my daughter. I want to be able to run and play with her. I want to be a positive healthy role model for her so she doesn't have to struggle with her weight.

As added motivation, during my pregnancy, I had gestational diabetes and high blood pressure which puts me at a higher risk to develop these problems later in life. So basically, I now know that genetics are not on my side for those 2 conditions. I don't want to have to deal with health problems later so I need to get healthy today!

oh no!!! So much snow again for you? I'm guessing you are in Canada? Well, if we are getting spring flowers now I'm sure you will get them in a few weeks too. I grew up in Michigan and once my family in the Southern states got flowers we were sure to get them soon too. Keep warm!

I like your pictures on your page. My wedding was in the winter, otherwise, I might have taken some outside shots.
