I just had my little one 3 weeks ago and I'm beyond excited to have another beautiful daughter. And of course she came bearing gifts, 32 lbs of extra weight!! <BR> <BR> I have already lost a few lbs just being home and breastfeeding. Which is very encouraging. Now the challenge is to make sure I eat well enough for my baby but that I also lose weight. <BR> <BR> I'm looking forward to the challenge! My goal is to lose 25 lbs by August and most importantly lose the mummy tummy. With my oldest... Tue, 23 Apr 2013 11:51:47 EST I Reached my goal weight and Now I'm pregnant! This time last year I decided it was time for me to lose the extra weight that I lowly put on after having my daughter. I wanted to fit back into my size 4 dresses. after some hard work and dedication I could fit into size 6 and squeeze into size 4. I was very happy with the results. and I was determined to keep up with my routine. <BR> <BR> However, recently I thought I had reached a plateau because I was not losing any more weight and my waist wast actually expanding. I felt a little disc... Sun, 5 Aug 2012 09:16:38 EST 30 lbs down! Yeah!!!!!!!!!! I've lost 30 lbs since I started my journey. <BR> <BR> I wanted to be at 130 lbs by January when I started but I didn't know about the commitment. I'm glad and thankful that I was able to lose 30 lbs in 5 lbs. I hit a plateau at 143 lbs for 4 weeks and was getting discouraged but the scale is moving again and I am excited. <BR> <BR> Now let's work on the last 10 lbs!

Tue, 31 Jan 2012 13:12:31 EST New Year New Life It's been 4 months since I joined Spark and I have lost 25 lbs so far. I went from size 12 to size 8. I still want to fit into my size 4 dress so I need to keep at it. <BR> <BR> My husband is now committed to losing weight and I want to believe it's because of my example. He gets on his new treadmill at least 3 times a week after work. Even my mother-in-law has joined in. I give her a call every morning to exercise together. We do a Zumba video together. <BR> <BR> It's amazing how at first... Wed, 11 Jan 2012 14:30:32 EST Get Rid of Mommy Tummy Challenge I'm tired of my mommy tummy. It's been 3 years since I had my baby and the little tummy is just not going away. This is a challenge to myself to see if I can finally get rid of my tummy.

Sun, 13 Nov 2011 21:22:25 EST Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels I have this new quote I heard somewhere and changed it a little to keep me motivated: ' Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels and no exercise is as painful as unhealthy feels'. <BR> <BR> I wanted to give up so many times this past month. I stumbled and fell a couple times but got back up. Every time I'm about to make a bad nutritional choice I repeated the quote to myself. Every time I'm about to skip a workout, I repeat the quote and keep going. <BR> <BR> I am very proud of myself for st... Thu, 13 Oct 2011 15:33:40 EST Weight Loss Challenge with Husband I woke up one morning and I was overweight and I don't how this happened. <BR> <BR> My whole I've been underweight trying to gain weight until I was about 28 years old and finally got to a healthy weight. I got pregnant and gained 35 lbs that I never lost but I was still healthy. I must have forgotten that I was now in my 30's and my body was different after having a baby because I kept eating without care and found myself 10 lbs overweight, wearing a size 12 dress. Size 12? double digit? H... Sun, 18 Sep 2011 18:16:22 EST
