I am 35 and married to my high school sweetheart with a 12yr old son (he's my Valentine's Day baby!) and a NEW little boy who will be 1 in April. After giving me ANOTHER wonderful kiddo and currently keeping that kiddo fed, it's hard to be negative with my body right now (I wish I could bottle this feeling for later when/if negative body image thoughts creep back in). I work full time with an hour commute 1 way. I'm an emotional eater with recurring depression issues. Times get tough, and I kind of shut down. I've lost weight in the past and gained it all back. I need to develop good routines/habits and ways to handle stress. I need to build a good foundation that I can build on, that won't crumble when life gets a little shaky. And after having the new baby I'm in serious need of some core rehab before I do myself damage.

As of Jan 2016, I was at my highest weight. Ever. I watched the scale climb and my clothes kept getting tighter, and I still didn't change my ways. I was scared and knew I needed to change...but didn't.

And then...as I turned 34 in Oct 2016, I found myself expecting child #2 due in April 2017. I put on 40lbs with my first, and the Dr. gave me a goal of 15lbs total gain this time around. I gained about 15lbs, and then was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and was put on a diet. I managed to control my blood sugar with diet for the rest of my pregnancy and actually went in to deliver at my pre-pregnancy weight...so I was actually 25lbs under pre-pregnancy 2wks post partum. The GB diet went out the window however as my baby spent 4wks in the nicu and I stress ate ALL the sweets. Now he's home and I'm breastfeeding and still have quite an appetite, and quite the sweet tooth. I do know that given the right motivation (such as harming my unborn kiddo) I can plan food and eat healthy...but day to day without that motivation...still working on it.

My Goals:
I really want to improve my overall fitness. I'm just out of shape all around. I want to tone up and feel strong and be flexible.

I want to be happy with myself and how I look and feel, no matter what I weigh, and I want to be a good example for my sons as they get older. To be proud of myself and teach them good habits, I need to develop those good habits for myself 1st.
