I'm 30 and have a 10 year old daughter and newborn baby boy. I'm making this my last chance to lose weight, so I better do it!
I have PCOS and thyroid problems. Now that I have them both under control hopefully losing weight will be a lot easier.

I was a little chunky as a child but in high school I got involved in dance and all the pounds melted away. After high school, I got a job as a flight attendant and being in heels all day helped keep my weight under control. Then the husband and children came along and I quit the airlines and now work a desk job doing accounting. My poor eating habits and sedentary lifestyle have left me over 50 pounds overweight. Everything changed after going on vacation to Disneyland and not wanting to have my picture taken at any of the attractions. I lost some pounds while on the trip and decided to keep it up when I got home, so I rejoined sparkpeople and so far I'm heading in the right direction. I can use all of the support that I can get and I can't wait to make a permanent change.

Update 04/30/10: I was maintaining my weight for a semester, but then a 10-day trip to DisneyWorld had me gain 10 pounds!!! I am back and ready to look good for this summer!

Update August 2011: I'm back from having my baby boy and I'm the biggest that I've ever been! I've started running again and taking classes at the local rec center. I'm hoping that things will click soon.

I am *DONE* being the fattest one out of all of my friends.
I am *DONE* being the fat girl at my work.
I am *DONE* not feeling confident within myself.
I am *DONE* having to worry about where to shop for clothes.
I am *DONE* not loving my body!

    You’re most welcome for adding you back! How is working PT going for ya? Girl, my body is different too. I’m FINALLY learned to embrace my body. You know, there is no one like you in the world! This journey was about being skinny. It’s about be strong and healthy now. You should not let the scale or a calorie or anyone make you feel bad about the way you look. You have given life to a beautiful baby and that’s something to be proud of! Rock that sexy mama body of yours! I think you look great! What are you weighing now? When I had Emmaleigh, I was 249! I’m not 180. My goal is 175/170. What is your goal? Thanks…I think Emmaleigh is amazing! She is 8 months old now. I bet it IS chilly in Utah! It’s cool in Virginia. We got some snow last weekend- boo!

    Hey girl! Thanks for the Spark mail. Of coarse, I will add you as a friend! How have you been? Congrats on your little man. He is adorable! Why are you doubting your hard work?

    So now I can't remember what I told you about the nail stuff... the salon effects? I think those can be fun inexpensive awards that make you feel good about yourself (and def looks like you put effort into your appearance). They are about 8-10 each and once you get really good at applying them, I've figured out how to make them last for 2 manicures, by using half a strip on each nail instead of a whole one (they give you 16 per pack, so it can be annoying)
    here's a link for them, you can buy them at Target, Ulta, and other beauty stores. Might be fun to give yourself one for each weightloss goal. The Halloween patterns are cool but I haven't been able to find them anywhere!
