You're doing great!! A healthy example is definitely good motivation.
I love fruits and veggies. Last year, when I lost almost 30lb before conceiving my daughter, I was on a predominantly fruit and veggie diet. I would eat a good breakfast (maybe apples, cheese, oatmeal or something). For lunch a salad or some fresh grilled/steamed veggies. For dinner, I would make a 6oz piece of fish (salmon, tilapia, cod, etc) with grilled/steamed veggies. It was amazing. I felt great! I also cut out all carbonated drinks, refined sugars, and like you over 90% processed foods went. Going back to this plus when I start exercising, I'm sure I'll be in the right direction.

Hi, Jenn.

I am a stay - at - home Mom to my 7 month old. We exclusively breastfeed too.

Before conceiving my daughter, I lost 75 lbs. (From 275 to 200 lbs.) with Sparkpeople. Since having her, I have lost the 20 lbs. (Back down to 200 lbs.) of baby weight I gained during pregnancy, and an additional 15 (185). I still have lots to go and am not sure what my overall goal will be.

I'm mostly Trying to eat clean as much as I can (no processed food), and to get as much exercise as I can. Got to lose this weight if I'm going to be a healthy example for my daughter. :)

My name is Jenn. I am 25 yr old, and have been married to a wonderful man for 5 yr this April. We have 3 children together; 2 boys and 1 girl. Connor our oldest son was born 9/2009, Trevor our second son was born 4/2011, and Addie our daughter was born 1/2013.
I gained a lot of weight with my first pregnancy, and remained overweight through my second. Before I conceived my daughter last year, I had lost almost 30 lb and was down to 150, a mere 15-20 lb from my ultimate goal of getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight in 2009.
I just gave birth 2.5 wk ago, and am sitting at 170 lb. I have an overall 40 I want to lose, but am going to break it down into smaller goals. And I know at 6 wk post-partum I may be smaller than I am now.
I am currently recovering from a cesarean section, and am not allowed to do any vigorous exercising until 6 wk pp.
Just wanted to introduce myself. I used SparkPeople at one point (I'm also 100% breastfeeding my daughter and am using BabyFit for my nutrition guidelines) and I really liked the people and support.
