6 months after giving birth to my daughter I am below my pre-pregnancy weight and still losing. I have set a goal of 119lbs (8 and 1/2 stone) but I may rethink that as I get closer. I'm back running races again and did my first ever 10k in 56 minutes 59 seconds on September 23rd and I am doing a half marathon in October. I am looking forward to setting more fitness goals in the future.

I haven't always had the best relationship with food, well... I don't think I've ever had a good relationship with food until now. My body confidence was minimal before I got pregnant but it's now better than ever before thanks to Sparkpeople. I'm continuously building on my healthy habits so I can pass them on to my daughter.

    Thanks for the comment on my page. It is weird, but I can be disciplined with dark chocolate squares, yet leave me alone with a bag of jelly beans or gummi bears and somehow there won't be any left. I do have to avoid being around the things that I have no willpower with. Take care, keep sparking!

    I wish that were true, but I haven't gained any muscle mass, nor have I done any strength training this month at all, so I doubt that's it. :/

    I don't mind at all! Though I admit, I find chin-ups harder to do than pull-ups!! Most people find them easier, but i never have. I can almost do a full pull-up now (or at least I could before I messed up my shoulder), but I'm nowhere near it with chin-ups!! Maybe by the end of the year. :D
