29 weeks pregnant (a week before I delivered)
My amazing twin boys @ 6 months old, Wes (top) & Max (bottom)
Our family - December 2010
Hi everyone! I'm Kerry. 35 years old, married to the man of my dreams, and after a long, hard road - finally a mother of two adorable twin boys, Maxwell and Weston, born in February 2009.
I'm a Sparkpeople success story - in 2006, both Jeff (the husband) and I lost more than 30 pounds each using Sparkpeople - and I'm coming back for more! More resources, more support, and more motivation to lose this baby weight once and for all!
My goal is to be at my pre-pregnancy weight by our 8th anniversary in August. Jeff's goal is to get rid of the beer gut and get down to a 36" pant size (which he's NEVER been in since we've been together). To help us reach our goals, we signed up for a 10 week program with a personal trainer, who will be kicking our asses twice a week until the end of August. I *know* we can do it, and I'm soooo excited to have the old us back!
Our ultimate goal is to keep this weight off - for good - therefore becoming positive role models for our children, showing them that being active, eating healthy, and taking care of yourself is the best gift you can give anyone!
I want to look as great as I did before I got pregnant (when I lost 35 pounds with Sparkpeople in 2006). Along with my husband, we are slowly "Sparking" our way back to a more healthy lifestyle so we can set a good example for our young boys.
I am slowly getting back to more sensible portions, drinking TONS of water, and squeezing in exercise whenever I can.

Congrats on your two little twin boys! They have come along real well for being born at 30 weeks.
Go to my spark page...I gave two sets of twins. B/G and identical girls. I was so blessed to have them born at 37.5 weeks and 38 weeks. Of course, being 5 ft. 2.5 inches, I was as big around as I was tall!!
I LOVE the pic of your husbands wedding ring around your little ones foot!
What a beautiful family!
