Well here I am again. I used Sparkpeople to lose 20 lbs in 2006, which was the only time in my life I have actually been able to lose weight. Then we went to Vegas for my 21st b-day and was never able to get back on track when we got back home. I have tried a few times since then, but in between all those times I tried to convince myself I was going to be happy with the way I was as long as I didnt gain anymore. Of course I am not happy with myself, I have no energy, and my body feels 20 years older. I am married with a 2 1/2 yo girl and 7 yo step daughter. I gained 30 lbs with my pregnancy but thank god I was able to lose it very quickly after giving birth. My hubby is overweight as well but he is the least motivated person I know, so he is no help! I dont really have any friends close to me, and I would love to have someone who lives close so that we can REALLY help each other to stay on track.....working out and avoiding temptations! I joined LA Fitness for a few months and I actually started jogging on the treadmill and strength training which I had NEVER done either before. In 3 months I only lost 3 lbs, but I felt much better and I was firming up. I cancelled my membership to save money so now I have a treadmill, small weights, and elastic band. I am a SAHM also but I have been looking for work for the last 6 months and no luck :( The reason I mention this is because we want to have another child, but the hubby says I need a job first! So I also want to lose some weight before baby, because I did have some complications during pregnancy like PRE-preeclampsia and a c-section. SO if anyone is hiring please let me know ;o) Bottom line I NEED to lose some weight and change my life!
