Hi, my name is Lindsey and I initially joined SPARK to lose weight for my wedding. On March 7, 2010 I married my best friend, and while I didn't reach my goal weight I did feel comfortable in my skin and felt beautiful on my wedding day.

In June 2011 we found out that we were expecting our first child! I had a wonderful pregnancy and was rarely ever sick! (Thank God for zero morning sickness) On February 29th, our son made his big debut one week early. Gavin Josiah was born via a natural birth and has abundantly blessed out lives. :)

However, with this blessing came a ton of extra weight. I gained 37 lbs and reached 190 lbs. Since his birth I have lost 23 lbs with breastfeeding, but still have quite a ways to go. I would love to lose the last 14 pounds of baby weight, but I also want to lose an additional 18 lbs to get down to my goal weight of 135 lbs. I am a curvy 5'3" and would like to keep my womanly figure. More than "getting skinny", I'd really like to tone up and become healthy!

My Goals:
I would like to lose the 14 lbs. that I have left of baby weight, as well as an additional 18 lbs to get down to my goal weight.

This is MY year to reach my weight loss goal. I am SICK and TIRED of always desiring to be better. It's "put up or shut up" time and I am ready to become who I've always wanted to be!!!!!

Got married in March, and have gained an additional 10lbs...I am the heaviest I have ever been and am SICK of it! I would like to lose 20 lbs and become HEALTHY.

I would like to be toned and reach my goal weight by a cabin trip my husband and I are taking with some friends.

**Old Goals**
I would like to tone up for my wedding. If I end up losing 20 lbs. and reaching my goal -- GREAT! If not, that's okay too as long as I am toned.

I would like to reach my goal weight and become more toned for this summer. My new husband and I would like to take advantage of living in Charlest

My Program:
I am following the suggested nutrition plan from SP, and I am easing into working out with the 30 Day Shred. I plan on starting the Insanity work-out on May 1st.

Personal Information:
I am originally from Lafayette, LA but am currently living in Charleston, SC. I love God, my husband Keith, my son Gavin, the Yankees, and my family. :)

Other Information:
In my life be lifted high. In my world be lifted high. In my love be lifted high...

    Comfort from our LORD: Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

    Dear Friend, Hope you have a blessed week-end.
    One of my favorite Bible Verses:
    The Golden Rule! Luke 6:31 Do to others as you would have them do to you. What kind of world would it be if we all lived by this rule. HUGS!

    A Poem of Hope
    by Helena Fehr

    I feel the arms of God around me,
    as I lay on my bed at night.
    Asleep, I feel the Angel's touch-
    I'm surrounded and held tight.
