Everyday is a gift

Hi beautiful sparklers , my name is Laura I'm 36 yeas old. I have been blessed with 2 sons (2 and 1 year old ) , a handsome husband , and a cute little dog.
I have always struggled with my weight . I have been in so many diets and I lost weight so many times that I can't even remember it.
At this point I have lost 38 pounds (that I added up after my 2 one -after -another pregnancies). But that is not where it ends. This is just the beginning .You see , I was 200 lbs when I ...
Hi beautiful sparklers , my name is Laura I'm 36 yeas old. I have been blessed with 2 sons (2 and 1 year old ) , a handsome husband , and a cute little dog.
I have always struggled with my weight . I have been in so many diets and I lost weight so many times that I can't even remember it.
At this point I have lost 38 pounds (that I added up after my 2 one -after -another pregnancies). But that is not where it ends. This is just the beginning .You see , I was 200 lbs when I got pregnant for the 1rst time. I'm 200 lbs today, that means the pregnancy weight is off, but I have 45 lbs more to be in a healthy weight. This is the hardest phase for me. I have hit a plateau, I get discouraged easily, and I give up. I need your support, advice and help. I'll do my best to reciprocate to anyone who think I can be of help. I don't want to give up this time .I don' want the type 2 diabetes ghost hanging over my head . I wanna learn to make it work through the struggle without quitting, and without feeling alone. My dream is to run a 5k, at this moment my knees are not strong enough to support my weight when running longer than 1 mile . There is so many things I want....,to have more energy,to have a body index mass number that is not in the "Obese " category, and being able to enjoy life in good health without food and weight being a problem.

Thank you for sharing my journey.

November 1rst ,2010
My first 8 pounds in my first month of SP. First time under 200 lbs since I think back in 2002/3. I was expecting at least 10 pounds, but hey, I take 8 lbs every month! Great advice from my friend MICHCLEARY(Thanks!!) about putting away the scale for a month. I felt liberated. I also run my first 15 minutes on a treadmill for first time non- stop, and I starting to believe that maybe, I could run a 5 k in the future. Is just 32 more pounds to go !
