Hello all, I'm a happily married mother of 3 from Ohio. I've struggled with my weight since my early 20's. Letting it get as high as 190ish, (I never knew the exact #). I lost approx 50lbs. and got down to 137. Maintained that weight for approx. 4 years.

Got pregnant w/ my 2nd child and ended up keeping most of the extra weight after his pregnancy. It took 2 years to get back down to 137. Then I get pregnant with number 3 who is now 7 years old. I maintained weight gain very well during his pregnancy and was down to 148, 6 weeks post-partum.

Now I've put on some holiday weight gain that needs to stop and begin coming off. So here I am, back in the saddle again.

*Update* Aug. 2014 and I am 6 pounds shy of my goal weight!
*Update* July 2015, I am 4lbs from goal weight and I'm as happy as peach pie to be right where I am feels so good!!

Thursday ~ ' I'm worth it'
