Changing my life for Dade

So at after being told that I would most likely die young of complications from being obese, I decided to have gastric by pass surgery at the age of 22.

I have always been over weight in my life but as a teenager my weight sky rocketed to 289 lbs. So at after being told that I would most likely die young of complications from being obese, I decided to have gastric by pass surgery at the age of 22. I was very happy with the results but never really stuck to the plan of working out or eating all the right foods. I never gained weight but I didn't lose what I could have. So I had my son 13 mths ago and I gained only 23 lbs during the pregnancy but some how I am still 15 lbs bigger that I was before I got pregnant. I have decided he is my reason to lose the rest of the 51 lbs that I should have lost after the surgery. I want him to learn healthy eating habits and I know the best way he can is by watching me. I also what to teach him that being active is fun.

My Goals:
*Lose 51 lbs by April 2009 for my families vacation to Cancun. (have to look good next to super skinny sisters)

*Teach my son healthy habits by having my own healthy habits

* Teach my son that staying active isn't a chore but more fun that T.V or video games.

My Program:
I am working out 5 days a week. I do 60 mins of cardio and then I do strength 3 days a week for 30 mins. My SIL works out with my 3 days a week so I have my support from her

Personal Information:
I have a great husband who is being so supportive. He watches our son and my SIL daughter so we can go work out. He gives them baths and gets them ready for bed, and even reads then a story everynight. I am very lucky.
