Our newest baby girl, aka NBG.




Me at my best in 2005 (approx 150 lbs with mostly muscle). A month later, I started gaining weight.

I just had my second baby in January, so now I'm hitting the diet & exercise hard once again. Still recovering from a rather difficult delivery with some embarrassing side effects, but I've added some serious supplements under the guidance of my naturopath. Hopefully things will start looking up! Hitting or exceeding 10,000 steps every day, too.

I struggled with weight all my life, then I got very fit in my early 20s. After a cross-country move, a hormone treatment (that caused a 70lb gain in 6 mos), & 2 babies, I'm the largest I've ever been, & I hate it. I was finally starting to lose some weight when I got pregnant with baby #2. Surprise! Now that I have my body back (sort of...we EBF), I'm excited to start exercising again & see what this ol' body of mine can do. I would really love to be fit & fabulous again!

    emoticon We should help each other track our food. Yesterday, I wrote down on paper what I ate (too much) but my son (age 5) was on the computer and I could not get to log it in. It takes too long on my ipad. I also want to try to eat less rice and work my way to switch to at least a multi-grain pasta...or whole grain. I am never going to lose the amount of weight I want too eating as much carbs as I do. It is so hard. My eating habits are so bad now and I ate good while pregnant...when I could. I was sick for the first 20 or so weeks...my son just assumed that Mommy threw up after dinner! :) I craved orange juice which was great and could not eat chocolate...which saved me from gaining too much. I go to the doctor on Wed. and am eager to start exercising again....but my eating needs to be fixed or all the exercise in the world won't help. Hope your weekend is good. Our weather here has been mild and I am so thankful each day. We had a blizzard the end of October and lost our lights and such for almost a whole week. I am glad for a mild winter here in New England.
