This is my little helper. Can you believe he is already 15 months old?

Hello and welcome to my sparkpeople webpage! I've been married for 11 years and things are going well. My husband and I both struggled with being obese our whole lives and tried many diets and ways of losing weight. Nothing worked until we found Sparkpeople. It took us a year, but In 2008 both my husband and I finally reached our goals - I lost 110 pounds and he lost 185 pounds! I also was able to get pregnant and gave birth to a beautiful baby boy in April of 2009.

After Jacob was born, I took a bit of a hiatus. Then in 2010, I had just started to lose the baby weight I had gained from the first child when I found out I was pregnant again. We had a beautiful baby girl in June of 2011. I came back to sparkpeople again to try and lose the weight. After another year, I once again got pregnant and gave birth to a beautiful baby at the end of February 2014.

We still watch what we eat and are constantly working on making ourselves better. Once again I am back trying to get to my original goal of 150. After 3 children, I have just over 40 pounds to go to get back to that weight so I can finally enjoy the cute clothes I bought at the end of the initial weight loss. Here we go! Let's see if I can get there before I get pregnant again.

Fitness Minutes: 38,595

My Goals:
I am back to get rid of the 50 pounds of baby weight after having my 3 kids. I also want energy to play with them and to make my knees stop hurting so much. I'm shooting for 170 (out of obesity) by November and then 150 for my long term goal.

My Program:
I attend a gym 2 days a week and do zumba or elliptical. I am mostly just working on my eating right now since that has been the hardest for me since having kids.

Other Information:
I love to go fishing whenever possible, and I like playing games on my phone or reading a book when I get a few minutes of alone time.

    Rose, I haven't been around much either. I caught the 24+ hour gastro bug this week. My stomach is still not totally settled. I know I will have a loss so I think we will be good to go for this week. The challenge will be to keep that weight off as my appetite returns. Warmer days are arriving in Ohio. Hope you are also getting a warm up for spring! emoticon
