Does anyone have any experience with Weight Watchers, Curves, etc.? I am trying to figure out a healthy way to continue eating well and working out, but I am struggling. I wish I could find a way to work out with a toddler. Sigh.

A few weeks ago I went to the doctor and found out that I am pre-diabetic. I was completely overwhelmed. I know that if I can lose a great deal of weight I will likely get out of the pre-diabetes range, but I can't seem to figure out how to do it. I have a one-year-old who has been going through a really clingy phase, but I want to try and see if I can start going to the gym while they watch him. I am not sure if it will work though. I also have no idea what to eat every day. I have so little time to cook, so I want a REALLY simple food plan that works. Any suggestions or ideas would be amazing.

My son, our first child, is now around eight weeks old, and I am starting to really stress out. When he is awake, he wants to be eating, entertained, or simply held, so I rarely have a chance to even go to the bathroom without him crying the whole time. And when he finally goes to sleep (which isn't often), I am so busy eating, going to the bathroom, and just recovering that nothing seems to ever get done.
I can't seem to find time to take care of myself or the house. So, I guess I am just wondering, is this normal? I don't have any close friends with kids, but the people I do know seem to be doing just fine. Am I doing something wrong? Does it get easier?

I am back after nearly a year break from SparkPeople, and my life has completely changed. Last year at this time, I had only been married a few months and was working waaaay too many hours as a teacher. Now, I have a seven week old son, and I am taking at least a year off from teaching to stay at home with the baby. Life has been crazy and busy these last few years, but I am ready to slow down and enjoy life with my amazing husband and baby. I am also ready to finally lose the weight that has been holding me down for so long, and this time I know I can do it!
This is because I ended up with gestational diabetes (only lasts during pregnancy) while pregnant, and I had to completely alter my eating habits. As a result, I actually lost weight during the first two trimesters of my pregnancy, which the doctor said was normal, and only gained a reasonable amount during my pregnancy. Now, it has only been seven weeks since I had the baby, and I am already less than I was before the pregnancy.
I have, however, indulged a bit since having the baby, so I need to get back on track now. And also find lots of healthy foods I can make quickly and eat with one hand while nursing. :)

I am about four months pregnant now, which explains why I haven't been on in awhile. We are having a beautiful baby boy, which we are terribly excited about! But that means I probably won't be on for awhile! Wish me luck! And since this is our first child, I would love any advice or knowledge anyone has to pass on. :)
