Stacy's Journey

I'm a busy mom of 4 who started WW in July of 2007, then decided to have another baby. I reached my personal goal in March of 2009 then re-evaluated my goal to be that I maintain a healthy weight under 120 (I'm 5'3" so that's not too skinny).

I'm using both the WW eTools to log Points and the SparkPeople page to count calories. I'm wanting to make the switch to just SparkPeople to save money, but I'm not sure if it'll work. I'm not sure what my hangup is, but I sort of have the ...
I'm a busy mom of 4 who started WW in July of 2007, then decided to have another baby. I reached my personal goal in March of 2009 then re-evaluated my goal to be that I maintain a healthy weight under 120 (I'm 5'3" so that's not too skinny).

I'm using both the WW eTools to log Points and the SparkPeople page to count calories. I'm wanting to make the switch to just SparkPeople to save money, but I'm not sure if it'll work. I'm not sure what my hangup is, but I sort of have the if it ain't broke, don't fix it mentality. Of course, saving $17/month is never a bad thing.

I live in Delaware, but am originally from Pennsylvania. I want to go back to Pennsylvania really badly, but it's just not in the cards right now. I think being in a funk, if not totally depressed, about moving to Delaware was a factor in me losing weight. I had gained steadily since high school anyway, but then after kids 2 and 3, the pregnancy weight just stayed on. I hated being in DE and had no control over it.

I did have control over my weight. I had gotten a negative comment the same weekend I had to buy a new outfit for a funeral since nothing I had fit. That Tuesday when we got home I immediately started WW. By January of 2008, I had lost 40 pounds. We decided to have another baby and for some strange reason I lost another 10 pounds at the beginning of the pregnancy (not due to illness; I suppose it was just because I knew how to eat). I managed to gain 35 pounds during the pregnancy (so 25 above pre-pregnancy weight), which is phenomenal for me. About a week or two after delivery I really started to track foods.

March 17, 2009 I weighed-in at 124, which is a pound below my personal goal. Since then, I've lowered my goal weight (still within a healthy range) and have managed to maintain my weight in the 110s since July.

Glad all was well! We talked to our old neighbors who live just south of Wilmington and they had 10 inches of water in the basement, a broken main sewer line and were going to lose a few of their very mature trees in the yard. I saw pictures of 141 underwater and was impressed to say the least.

If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
