"Ideas without actions are worthless" ---Harvey Mackay

I am a 31 year old mom of 3 and wife of one, living in sunny Arizona. I've always been chunky, but with my last pregnancy, I gained a whopping 60 lbs. After I gave birth, I weighed more than I did 9 months pregnant with my other 2. I was tired, miserable, and had NO energy. My heaviest regular weight was 175. Over 3 long years I managed to get down to 149.

I am a 31 year old mom of 3 and wife of one, living in sunny Arizona. I've always been chunky, but with my last pregnancy, I gained a whopping 60 lbs. After I gave birth, I weighed more than I did 9 months pregnant with my other 2. I was tired, miserable, and had NO energy. My heaviest regular weight was 175. Over 3 long years I managed to get down to 149.

I started SP in January '08. My progress has been slow, but progress, none-the-less. I would do good for awhile, then fall off the wagon. Starting in May, I began to have a revelation. I realized I was putting too much pressure on numbers. I was comparing myself to others too much. I was getting discouraged when I didn't see as good as results as other people. My focus has now shifted from weightloss, to fitness and wellness. I've had a sort of awakening. I feel better, I'm more positive, and have more determination.

I now plan to incorporate my better eating habits already acquired, into my whole family. Afterall, why should I eat healthy, and feed them junk. I want to be a good role model for my children (and my husband) and enable them to grow up with healthy eating habits, rather than having to correct it as adults, like myself.

My exercise has shifted from "doing enough to get by" to "let's see how far I can push myself." This aspect is still a work in progress, but my improved mindset is definitely there. No more obsessing about the scale. I want to see the results on my body, not on a hunk of metal. I have the desire to gain strength and be lean. I want to transform my shape. Weightloss included, of course, but no more daily weigh ins for me. I will FEEL the change in my body. So now, I start a new journey to wellness.

You have done great!!!
Do read "Shrink Yourself" by Roger Gould, M.D. on dealing with stress and how not to regain the pounds. Also, read "The South Beach Diet" by Arthur Agatston, M.D. on Metabolic Syndrome/Insulin Resistance as he explains why belly fat is so awful for us and how to change our metabolism.

I know that you will keep working on your fitness. emoticon
