Before I got pregnant, I was making great progress with my weight loss. I had lost 70 pounds and was about 15 pounds from my goal weight. My healthy journey ended when I became pregnant and continued after I'd had my son. I developed hypothyroidism, and it took 6 months to get my levels back to normal.

Now my son is 2 years old, and my husband and I are struggling to keep up with him. We don't want to be that way. So we've made a pact to eat healthier and exercise; we want to be here to see him grow up, get married, and have his own children.

Together we are strong; together we will succeed.
