I AM ON A SERIOUS POST-PREGO WEIGHT-LOSS MISSION!!

Ok, that was my introduction when I first started with Sparkpeople but since then ( End of Aug. 2010 ) I have lost over 20 lbs putting me below pre - prego weight :)...Mission accomplished!!
I live in Canada with my wonderful husband and new son - I have always been active, but can't say I was always leading a healthy lifestyle! You could say I over-indulged in food and wine...I am pleased to say that I have changed all that with clean eating and only drinking occasionally.
These changes have had a great impact on my life, as I find that I have much more energy to focus on my passions in life - My son, and my running!

Sparkpeople thank-you!!!

    emoticon I see your Spark Friend, emoticon FITFOODIE806 is The Motivator of the Day.

    emoticon Happy Birthday to your Taurus son tomorrow. 5 is a great age. The Taurus child can be really stubborn and set in his ways. He can have difficulty in school as he likes to be outside. He enjoys playing in the dirt and getting rough. He can grow up to be a great banker or real estate agent as he adores money and all the luxury it will buy. Wayne Dyer is a great example of a Taurus who went from rags to riches by his own self determination.

    Thanks for getting back to me and giving me such great info about your meals/snacks! That was really helpful! I'm looking to switch up my plan now from strictly weight & fat loss to getting stronger now. Thanks again! :D

    You continue to inspire me! :D I was looking through your Food Tracker to get some ideas and I had a question, if you don't mind me asking.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon

    In the Snack category you have quite a bit of food listed and I was wondering if you eat 1 large snack along with 3 meals each day or if you are having multiple snacks throughout the day in addition to your meals but just tracking them all under the single Snack category?

    In my Nutrition Tracker, I have Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack (Original SP Meal Categories), and then I added Extra Meal Categories for "Afternoon Snack" and "Evening Snack" to help me see what time of day I was bringing in my calories. It has also been helping me make sure that I eat every 3-4 hours by having a separate Meal Category for each time I'm eating and tracking. What do you think? Do you space out your meal and snacks every 3-4 hours too?

    Thanks in advance for any help or feedback!
