Wanted: Strong good habits!

My 20's were a time of experimentation, yo-yo weight gain/loss, and learning. I had my first child at the age of 29 and I'm learning the lessons from that experience.

Now that I'm 30, I want to put my experience to good use and rehabilitate my body. I want to get to a healthy weight range (145-160 lbs) and solidify good diet and exercise habits, so that I can have the energy and flexibility to enjoy my growing family to the fullest.

Update 6/5/2012: I have two wild and sweet toddler girls, 15 months and 34 months (turning 3 in July). After my second daughter was born, I lost weight so effortlessly--especially because I had to cut dairy from my diet due to her allergies--that I got used to eating whatever I wanted. I'm back to regain healthy awareness and a better relationship with food and exercise.

I am 30, happily married, living in lovely Austin, TX. I quit smoking May 16, 2005. I have made several attempts to diet and establish the exercise habit over the years (starting with aerobics at age 8 with my dear mom), but have never sustained success.

I know I will eventually get there, building slowly but surely on good habits.

I saw your post on a message board regarding your co-workers bringing kolaches into the office --- I knew you had to be near central Texas!!! I was born and raised in West (tiny town north of Waco) where every 2 blocks is a bakery specializing in Kolaches! Great job on avoiding the temptation --- those yummy treats get me every time I am home to visit!

I just wanted to tell you that you look great in your after photos! You should be so proud of yourself. I read the little thing that you wrote at the end of June and I am in the exact same situation. I noticed that I started to slack a little at the 4 month mark and I still work out and try to watch what I eat but I have been allowing myself to have a ton of "cheat days." I haven't gained any weight back but I haven't really lost any either.
Have you been able to remotivate yourself? Maybe we can help to remotivate each other.

Hey Mary!

Remember me? I'm Aldana from 43 things.com. I decided to check on everyone that signed up to SP trough my post and you're the only one that's still working her way to her goal: CONGRATS on that!! Consistency pays and you certainly are seeing this as you're so close to your goal weight. Congratulations again and let me know if you need any help.
