Well Monkey is 16 months now and I am still struggling to lose this last 20lbs I put on. One day at a time!


I have been gone for almost a year I guess and I am back and even heavier then before but for a good cause. I am the proud momma of a baby boy who was born Oct. 1 2009. He is the light of my world and just typing this makes me emotional!

We had a rough pregnancy. I had severe morning sickness almost the entire pregnancy. I ended up in the hospital twice for dehydration. At the end of my pregnancy I swelled like a balloon and had to be put on bed rest for pre- eclampsia. Finally after begging for two weeks the doctor induced me. After about 24 hours of labor, 3 hours of pushing I ended up in the operating room having a C-section. My 9.7lb baby boy was born at 5:47pm on the 1st of October.

I am so happy. I don't think I have ever been happier even on the days that I barely slept!

So here I am in a new chapter of my life and hopefully I can get the rest of the weight off.

My Goals:
I want to get down to 150lbs. I am not setting a date for myself because I never seem to get there in time and then I feel like I have failed.

Most of my eating issues are emotional and I have worked a ton on those. I am now the happiest I have ever been in my life. Life is so different for me now.

My Program:
I use South Beach. I have tried other plans and been successful to a point but with SB I always feel more satisfied.

I use to be a gym rat but now I am a working mom so when I am not at work I want to be home. I still have my membership so we will see how it goes. I have no idea what my work out plan will be lol!

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I am happily married. This July will be our 8th wedding anniversary. We have two dogs and a cat a lot with our son.

Life has really changed for use and I am not sure what it will bring but I know everyday I feel truly blessed.

    Hi There - I am happy to hear you are in a good place. What is TTC that you are starting with your hubby? My hubby is a black belt martial artist and a yoga enthusiast. These two areas work different areas of the body and maintain health. I think it is really important for all of us to remember that we are holistic beings....therefore mind, body and soul.....has to be fed with good and healthy thoughts, feelings, food, etc..

    I love creative design and my environment feeds me in many areas. Eating and exercise is where life could be better for me. Discipline is the key in everything. Email me on my spark mail anytime....Take good care...Jacki
