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.

    Thank you! I have been more or less MIA for months.. just getting on long enough to log and that's it. ITs been crazy so much going on. But I m hoping its all about to get back to normal so I can get back to being on full time and getting back to losing the weight and not bouncing back and forth.. losing and gaining the same 10 lbs for a few months now.

    I also hope you have enjoyed the Holidays and I wish you a Very Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year!!!
    Also WTG with sticking to it and getting Healthy you are doing GREAT!!!!! I bet Amelia is getting so big! emoticon

    I think the big thing is that when I was younger, I was training 2-3 hours a day in and out of the pool. I never HAD to worry about what I was eating, because I was burning so many calories every day. I probably ate 3000-3500 calories a day, but I never counted. I know I ate 6-7 times a day. I do think that the several times I've been on weight watchers, I've messed up my metabolism a bit, but I seem to have recovered enough! It seems to be exactly where it should be, burning about 1650 for my daily BMR if I'm 100% sedentary (not getting out of bed for any reason).

    Read your post in the Maintainers daily check in thread. Wanted to suggest lentils for cheap protein. I've been cooking with them more and they are delish!

    Hi Zennith, I just read through a thread from you on the Maintainance team and was wondering how the cal/protein/carb/cardio/strength hunger issue is going? I am right about where you are as far as lbs lost and lbs to go...seeking maintainance tips. Keep Sparking!
