Me in September of 2012. I weighed 140 pounds and I actually thought I was fat!





How many women get to use their wedding photos as inspiration?? Another 140 pound me.





This one I weighed more, but I was actually in better shape. I want my body back!



I have 4 pics in my gallery

Hoping for change

I'm 28 and I live in Oregon. I'm the "it's complicated but mostly single" mother of a just over 10 week baby boy. I work from home as a graphic designer.

During my pregnancy I packed on an outrageously high ONE HUNDRED POUNDS of extra weight. Since giving birth on January 2nd I have lost a little over 50 pounds of that weight due to breastfeeding, stress, and, y'know, no longer having a baby inside me. ;D

Now, however, it's time to control my natural inclination to be sedentary and kick that last 50 pounds in the ass! Why? Because my mental health is inversely proportionate to the circumference of my ass- PLUS I really want my baby to have a healthy, happy mama as a role model.

Sooo...here I am. Again! I'm hoping to use SparkPoeple to lose some weight, meet other 20-something working mamas, and generally get a better perspective on life.

My Goals:
I want to get back down to 140 pounds....or even better, my original goal of 130!

In addition to just losing weight, I want to get in shape, and get in the habit of having a healthy life style.

My Program:
At the moment I'm simply trying to do one active thing each day, eat better, and utilize what time I do have to the best of my abilities.

I would love tips. Living mostly by myself and juggling work, baby, and a natural inclination to avoid exercise, it's hard to keep my motivation up!


Personal Information:
My name is Marla. I live in southeast Portland, OR. I'm an artist, an activist, and a mother. I'm shy in person but a bit of a loud mouth on the internet- oops!
