Want to be a skinny bride!

I want to lose 25 pounds by the summer to have more energy to play with my kids. And another 20 by next summer for my wedding!

I'm so tired of being the 'Fat Friend' and even more tired of complaining about being Fat as I eat a jumbo bag of PB M&M's.
I joined Spark in 2006 when my first son was 6 months old , and then never came back. I knew deep down I wanted a second child and kept talking myself out of losing weight , because I'd just gain it all back when I got pregnant ...

I joined Spark in 2006 when my first son was 6 months old , and then never came back. I knew deep down I wanted a second child and kept talking myself out of losing weight , because I'd just gain it all back when I got pregnant anyways. I had my second son in October 2008 and am 100% done having babies. Being done has finally taken away my biggest excuse to not lose weight , without that to hold me back I have decided to take charge and do something about all this extra weight.

I can't believe at one point in my life I was made fun of for being Too Skinny!!!! Until I was 15 I was never over 100 lbs , but I went away for the summer , gained 15 lbs and struggled with my weight ever since.

I was 126 lbs when my future husband and I started dating , and in 2 and a half short year I was up to 175lbs (Before getting pregnant) I come from a family of 8 where the food portions weren't very big , to living with my boyfriend being able to eat whatever and how much I wanted. And I took advantage , and obviously payed for it!

So I rejoined spark January 26th 2009 , and have lost 11 lbs (I lost 14 lbs before joining, but hit a plateau before I joined here)
I'm not on a diet , and I still eat all of the food I love, but I look at food so differently now. They say "Eat to live not live to eat" And that is the way I eat now. I am having fun finding new ways to make healthy portion controlled versions of the foods I love.

I've also gotten off my big ol butt and make sure to get some exercise in 4-5 days a week. I'm just looking forward to the warmer days Spring and Summer so I can include outdoor activities to my workout routine!

I love the motto "Nothing tastes as good as Skinny feels" and have it taped on my fridge . People have laughed at me, but I think of it every time my fiance calls on his way home and asks if I want anything from the store and I bite my tongue from saying "A chocolate bar!!" like I used to say ever other time he asked before joining Spark.

Here's to a healthy 2009 , and many years to come!
