Hi! I'm Deborah! Loosing the baby fat has been just as hard of a challenge as it was last time. I'm doing it though! I gained weight slowly through college. Until I went from 118 lbs. to 135 when I got married. I gained 55 lbs during the first pregnancy and was devastated when only 10 of it came off before I left the hospital! (I had actually packed my pre- pregnancy jeans!) I went down from 185 to 145 before I got pregnant with my second. I did better with my second until the end and once again I walked into the hospital at 185 (atleast it was a little under the first!). I walked out at 175 horribly depressed. I started eating better and teaching aerobics. 3 years later I reached 130. I was actually less than my marriage weight and was fitting in jeans that I had not fit in since high school! Baby 3 would have gone better, but I broke my leg when I was 3 months pregnant, had surgery and had to sit it out. I still did well with my eating until the doctors had a coronary because I had only gained 3 lbs at 6 1/2 months. So I made up for it the last tri-mesterby gaining about 35. This time I walked in at 165 and walked out at around 160. I slaved away and got back down to 130 a few months ago, but my cruise and the aftermath have not done me any favors. I am determined to get down to 120. I am eating healthy and exercising. I am so glad that I found sparkpeople.

    Hi there,

    I love to hear that I can inspire other women. Especially Moms. We often neglect ourselves. Your kids are SO cute!!

    Work hard girl. My weight is SO stubborn these days.

    You're right, two out of the three sports isn't that bad. I'd probably be in way more trouble if I could swim, but couldn't bike or run considering they are the longer parts of the event. I should just focus on the positives and it won't be so scary!

    By the way, I love your new profile picture!
