i was skinny before i got on birth control in my freshmen year of highschool. i went from 108lbs to 180lbs. in about 6 months. i started to regain control of my weight in my senior year of highschool, and then i got pregnant at 19. i gained about 80lbs in my pregnancy. seeing that number makes me sick. i can not believe i gained that much weight during my pregnancy. i wasnt prepared and did not combat my cravings and i didnt do any physical activity at all. when i went into labor i was 260lbs. two days after giving birth i was 243lbs. i joined spark (under a different sign in) a month after my son was born in early 2008, and i lost about 28lbs. then i left spark for a bit and rejoined in may of 2010. since then ive lost 26 more pounds, and i have 60 more pounds to go to get to my ultimate goal.

That is such good news!!
Its so tempting to want to try anything that promises fast results, but IMO the Spark way of a balanced healthy diet is really the best way to go. Also, because it allows flexibility from person to person and even day to day it is more sustainable.
Good luck with whatever way you choose to go!

That sounds good! Just as long as you balance it out. My plan is going really well. :-) I've been trying for years to leave 200-ville, and it looks like I might do it in the next couple of days. I'm beyond excited!
