Hi Everyone!

A little about me..

This is a second start for me; Second post-baby weight loss journey. I will not count anything other starts before then ;)

I am 34, married and we have a little boy named Ethan. He was born on March 2009. I gained a lot of weight with the pregnancy but I lost it fairly easily since I was breastfeeding and pumping.

Most of the weight i have now is from summer 2010 till Dec 2010. The first 20lbs was very gradual, but the last 17 was gained in 2 months. That was a very stressful time in my life. I chose to eat to soothe my pain. I really did not do it sub-consiously. I was so aware that I was eating for comfort.

Around Christmas time I reached my bottom. I will not get in details, but all I can say is that I was so down and out and really there was no other way but to start climbing up.

Right before the new year, I decided that I had to make changes so I can improve my overall health. I needed some motivation, so I watched a documentary on netflix called: "Change your food, Change your life." I guess what attracted me was the title. I needed to change my life. It was not about weighloss alone. I needed to be happy, peaceful and healthy.

I then came across the "Gerson Miracle." I reasoned that, if the Gerson way can heal cancer, then surely it can help with depression! And I was right. I have been eating the Gerson way since Jan 3rd. In brief, I eat Vegan, organic, and as much raw as possible.

I also exercise daily. for the past 4 weeks I have just been walking. I started with just 10 minutes of walking. Now I can walk 4 miles. 2 miles to the park, then I play with my son and then I walk back.
This week I started using the eliptical for 30 minutes. My goal is to get to a point where the walking is for relaxation and the main form of exercise will be more intense. e.g. Spin, running or an exercise class.


Goals:
To be happy and
My goal is to lose 62lbs. I would like to get to 135. Yes, my weight at the beginning of the year was 197.
