I am a mom of 2 kids that finally lost the baby weight.(my youngest is gonna be 7). Looking for support and motivation to keep it off and tone up what I have!

Growing up I was always fit, not skinny. I graduated HS at 128 lbs, but had musclular legs and a flat stomach. Then came college...I did not gain the freshman 15, I gained about 5 lbs a year. After 4 years that was 20lbs. and I was not exercising almost at all. Then I met this guy who liked me for me weight and all. I guess being in a happy relationship, helped, We started Atkins, he soo gave up, but I kept going. When we got married 2 years later I was 108lbs. I was NEVER gonna gain back the weight!
Well got pregnant and gained 50lbs (couldn't even look at protein when I was pregnant). I tried WW and lost almost all the weight, but I wasn't committed and having a baby who hated to sleep consumed my time. After I had baby number 2 (another50lb gain). I lost some weight, but I was sick of dieting. I had tried Jenny Craig, the Fat smash diet, atkins again, sugar busters, La Weight loss, etc. I was sick of diet food. My new mind set was that I am going to enjoy myself, enjoy food and enjoy life. (accept myself as I am).
That was good in theory until vacation of '09. My 10 year wedding anniversary. I had bruises on my thighs from walking around in a bathing suit and my legs rubbing together. They actually hurt. I had to put babypowder on my legs to try and prevent chaffing. I looked in the mirrors and my body was round and I was not happy! My husband still loved me and NEVER said a word about my weight...That was my AH-HA moment.
Started WW in Sept, when the kids went back to school. This time, I was going for ANY weight loss, not quick weight loss. As long as I was losing, I was happy! I did indulge on the weekends and have enjoyed my journey. It took me 13 months to lose 40lbs, It was definately work, but not sooo hard that I ever felt I was working harder than the results I was getting. Since starting my Healthier lifestyle. I have run in multiple 5 ks, and my body(or brain) has really started to crave exercise. I am looking for people to share my road of maintenance with. "Slow and Steady WINS the race!)

    You asked if you should reconsider getting Chalean Extreme. Please don't! Chalene is amazing and I am getting stronger. I would definitely get the program and try a hybrid. The workouts aren't the problem, I just have problems sticking to a program. I keep wanting to just put all of my workout videos on shuffle! I get bored easily and that's probably why I haven't ever been able to make exercise a habit. I am trying to do better, though! emoticon

    Thanks for adding me! I can relate to alot of your journey! Especially having a baby who refuses to sleep! It took all of my energy just to keep up let alone thinking about exercise! Also training for 5K's and WW has all been a great way to keep focused. You look fantastic and all your hard work has paid off! Your story helps me keep my journey strong too! :)
