Life really has been all over the place. From college to getting married to having my first child my weight crept up. I peaked in weight just after my first son was born. Then with diet, exercise (we walked everywhere), breastfeeding, and the loving support of my husband... I lost 100 pounds in 1 year.

Fast forward...
Diet restrictions slowly came off and the exercise dwindled after we moved to a less walk friendly area. The weight started coming back on and then I got pregnant. All hope seemed to go out the window. This time after having the baby, the weight wasn't coming off.

Portion sizes were increasing and the exercise became less frequent and I kept gaining weight. There never seems to be enough hours in the day to take care of the house, take care of the kids, take care of the business, take care of my husband... and at the end of the day there's nothing left for me to take care of myself.

SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE!

I'm starting over, one babystep at a time (thanks Flylady).
- Start the day weighing in
- Measuring out my breakfast. Who knew that an adult serving size of cereal only filled half my kids bowl?
- Making a conscious effort to get outside
- End the day with pushups
