Hello! I am in my upper 30's and have a 2 year old son. I have at least 10 more pounds to lose and I find Sparkpeople to be a great motivator...although I'm currently kind of 'stuck' in the weight loss battle. I am hoping this group is fairly active and can keep me motivated!

Hello everyone! I'm a 29 year old woman who has been married for 10 years. We have been blessed with 2 children, a 9 year old son and a 1 year old daughter. I've always been on the "chunky" side, but after giving birth to my son, I gained a lot of weight. It wasn't until after giving birth to my daughter that I weighed my heaviest...220 lbs. I was shocked that I had allowed myself to get like this. Shocked and disgusted. I've now lost 15 lbs, but I know that I have a very long road ahead of me. Can't wait to meet you all!

Wow, where to start...
I'm happy to be a part of a team that understands what it is like to juggle young ones and try to work toward personal goals as well. My LO is Danny and he's 2, I also have a 6 yo girl and 8 yo boy who make life even more exciting. Our family has fallen into the TV and computer trap where everyone seems glued to a screen all the time. I know this isn't healthy for little bodies and little brains but sometimes I have to admit I enjoy the quiet and calm that it can bring.

As for me, I'm a stay at home mom and a writer. I'm currently working toward the completion of my first novel and hope to talk to publishers before the end of the year. I like working in the yard (when the little ones let me), music, books, and really awesome movies.

I've been a member of Sparkpeople for a long time but only recently jumped back into being active when my weight started creeping up and out of control.

I look forward to getting to know you all!

Progress, not perfection!

Good Morning! I joined this team a while ago but as life would have it, I just dropped out of spark for a while due to, dare I say it?...no time! Well, as always, we need to make time. I am turning 40 this year and I'm not real happy with how I'm feeling. The Spark community has always helped me achieve my health goals by holding me accountable, so help me out folks!

I have an amazing son, Lennon, who will be 4 this summer, and a stepdaughter, Anna, about to turn 14. We have made the family decision to start camping this year and I just want to be in better overall shape to enjoy everything with the entire family. I could stand to lose 10-12 lbs, but mostly it is about feeling stronger and healthier. My biggest problem is time. I work full time, as does my husband, the 2 kids, the dog, and you know, LIFE!! LOL!

I love the outdoors, music and theatre, and watching my son grow and learn.

I look forward to getting to know many of you and helping to support you in your goals as well. emoticon

Hello, Just joined the team. My LO is Amelia and she turned two a couple of weeks ago. I'm loving the challenges of being a mum and I can't believe how busy life is getting!

Amelia does gymnastics and swimming and at the end of this month she is going to her first playgroup session! I do martial arts twice a week and like to run and do Pilates too.

Hi, My name is Leanna. I'm 32 years old and have a vivacious 3 year old girl named Ella(and a 10 month old boy named Ethan). I'm a nurse but stopped working about 5 years ago due to autoimmune health problem with lots of joint and muscle pain. That's how I gained my weight-going from being a runner to 10 years ago, being inactive and sick all the time. My pregnancies have helped me go into remission and I'm taking advantage of that to workout and get myself back to healthy! I'm an author now and to stay active, also a dog walker-mandatory workouts! :) Life is crazy busy with 2 kids and work but I know the healthier I get and the lighter I get....lol...the better I can conquer the day and be a good role model for my kids health! Ella is a witty, active, and sweet little girl who is always ready to dance, run, and cook! Good opportunities for me to teach her good things about food and exercise!

I can do this!

Hey, my name is Crystal and I'll be 27 next month. I have a 4yr old daughter named Hayden. She loves all animals especially dogs, horses, and zebras. She is in gymnastics, learning to read and write, and loves playing dress up with her princess wardrobe we made her for her birthday in December. Life can be very hectic, especially being a single mom, but I'm working hard to set a good example for my daughter by living a healthier and more active lifestyle. Friend me, I could always use motivation and would love to motivate ya'll as well!

Hi! My name is Kathy. I'm 29, and have always been overweight. A few years back, I found spark. Lost 50 pounds. Ran a 5K. And was insanely confident. Fast forward to now, I have 2 amazing kids, and I've gained more than 50 pounds back in the process.

I'm a SAHM of 2 boys. Carter will be 3 in March. He is very sweet, loves superheroes, cars, and trains, and will talk your ear off. Drew turned 1 in November. He loves Mickey Mouse, shoes, and anything his brother is playing.

Friend me and let's keep each other motivated!

Hello Team!
My name is Rachael, and I am 29 years old and live in North Carolina. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 2 kids, Ava (4 yrs...turning 5 in April!) and Josh (3 yrs). I am a Registered Nurse and work full time in the ICU at our local hospital.
My weight loss goal is about 30 pounds, 35-40 would be even better! I have slowly been gaining weight since having Josh in 2010, and after multiple unsuccessful attempts at losing it I am praying that this time I can keep myself on track. My husband and I going to do a low carb diet and keep active -- we both have weight to shed! I'm thankful I have him for support and motivation.
Looking forward to getting to know you all and journey together to our goals!

Hi all!! I'm a 33 y/o woman and mother to a 2-year-old. In fact he just turned 2 yesterday (January 1).
I thought this would be a nice team to join. Hopefully connect with other busy moms and get some tips and ideas on losing weight and parenting too :)
My goals are to lose at least 30 lbs. I know it's cliche to do the new year's resolution (and honestly I believe in making changes and goals throughout the year) but this year it felt really needed. I can't keep talking about losing weight- I need to do this for myself and my family (so that I am a happier, healthier mom and wife).

I work Monday to Friday at a desk job. I have a husband who is equally interested in healthy eating and lifestyle changes, so that helps a lot! In fact, this past fall he lost 35 lbs (while I lost 10- no fair :P). I love it when he gets on health kicks- it helps so much with meal planning and keeping junk food out of the house.

I digress- that's just a little bit about me. Hoping to connect with you all more on different threads and hopefully we can support eachother :) And Happy New Year!

My name is Shay. I'm working and a single parent of a three year old. I want my son to be healthy and I figured I should start doing the same. I want to be able to keep up with him and not be the parent who has to sit down even though he'd rather run around playing tag and racing.

I don't think I have posted here yet. So here goes. :)

My name is Christina. I have a twelve year old, a 4 year old, and a 15 month old. My 4 year old just started school today and was so excited. Mommy, however, hasn't handled her baby n not being in the house all day as well as I would have liked. LOL. Trying to adjust to yet another little angel growing up on me.

Hi my name is Erica and I am a 27 yr old mother to 2 little girls, Grace 3 and Cora 1. I have been working to get fit and healthy for them as I want to set a good example and help make sure they don't go through the same things I did. I want to help them learn what good nutrition options are and that physical activity is fun. Half way to my goal now about 30ish pounds to go!

So I have been a member of this team for a while but am just getting back into sparking and exercising. I am a 33 year old mother of 3 with 1 preschooler. She is super fun and always learning. I just went back to school to get my degree in secondary education so I am super busy. I was so excited to find the school gym so I can work out after class. Hopefully I can stick with it this time and keep the weight off.

The only thing you can't accomplish is the thing you don't start.

Hello! I am a 30 year old mom to a wonderful baby angel, Uriel. He currently learning to count and learning alphabets, colours. Its so cute watching him learn all those things and him speaking in his cute baby talk. I consider myself lucky bacause he loves fruits and veggies and I try to limit all the sugar that we eat at home. Mostly again he has milk and egg allergies so he does not eat any chocolates or ice creams.

Keep on trying and pushing Ileana, you will get there eventually.

Hi. I am Ileana and I have been Sparkmember since December 2008 (4 months after my son was born). I've been overweight since I was born emoticon . When I started in SP, I was weighting around 260 but now I weight 216 and my goal is to reach 160. I will be honest and tell you that my 5 years old son is is overweight too, he has 20 pounds more than he should. That is killing me! No matter what I try to do, it seems nothing works with him. His doctor says that, without considering his weight, his health is good but he really needs to lose weight to avoid any health complication in the future years.

My loving family (husband and mother) understand that our little dinosaur (he loves dinosaurs) must lose weight but I feel they do not pay enough attention to the food and activities they do at home. We are from Puerto Rico and I am proud but this means that my family loves rice, bread, sweets, and fried food which is the worst combination when you are trying to get healthy. emoticon The only thing I can do while I am out to work is pray they will follow my instructions for food and exercise. During weekends, I am on charge of everything but 2 days out of 7 won't make the difference.

My son is the reason why I decided to get active in SP again because I am positive that my friends will help me to help him. I wish you all great success in your journey for a better health. emoticon Never give up, and if you fall, stand up and emoticon .

This is a learning journey... I am learning to eat healthy, to love exercise, but more important, I am learning to love myself.

Hey I am Jessica! I am 30 and a SAHM to a wonderful 3 year old who I love more than anything, even when she is being a little sass emoticon We are still working on the whole potty training thing. Its been pretty frustrating but I think we are getting LOTS closer now. I actually put her to bed last night in undies for the very first time so we will see when she wakes up. I checked on her a couple hours ago and she seemed to be dry so far so fingers crossed. This momma is sick of pullups

Hello Mighty Sparktians!

I am new to this website and so far I find it wonderful! I am almost vegetarian ( I rarely but still have from time to time chicken , fish or turkey ....organic whenever possible) , I have always been very health conscious and try my very best to minimize my impact on the environment . I am very eager to learn about how I can lead a merry vegan life style but being parent of a 3 year old Princess named Alicia I want introduce these changes slowly so that we can adjust successfully. I wish to use the trackers and blog space to help me organize my goals and share my progress and find inspiration.
I want reach out to this community to benefit from your experiences and points of view and offer you my insight on this amazing journey!

Hi everyone! I'm Krystie and I am 27. I have an amazingly rambunctious 3 year old that keeps me on my toes :) I was lucky and didn't gain any unessicary weight with his pregnancy. I developed PPD though and that spiraled out of control for over a year. Now I have finally made up my mind I want these 45lbs GONE!! I'm so happy to find this team and look forward to hitting our goals together!!

Hi! My name is Kimberly. I have a 3 year old son named Lincoln and a 2 month old son named Declan. I've used sparkpeople successfully for many years. I am back in hopes to lose my baby weight.

My name is Carrissa and I have a 4 year old little girl come the 5th of August. She is energetic and spunky and I have no energy to keep up with her. I have gained so much weight since my pregnancy and truth be told I blame a lot of my weight gain on my pregnancy when im the one to blame. Its been 4 years since I was 140 pounds so ive had plenty of time to fix myself. I now am pushing myself to the farthest and becoming stronger. I hope to be able to feel great about myself and be all that I know that I am. One day I am hoping to be strong enough to join the armed forces.

Hello! I'm Tori. Like many of you I'm looking to tone up and set a good example for my daughter. I quit smoking in May, and I gained a few pounds shortly after. (It was worth it still!) My daughter, Lilly, is 3. She is tall, outspoken, and loves to entertain. She dances and sings her way through each day. I'm a college student, and this is the first summer I haven't attended classes since she was an infant. Spending everyday with her again has its ups and downs. At three she has become independent and opinionated, and therefore, at times, deliberately defiant. Despite the moments of pure frustration (for both of us) we get by. My family loves to laugh, try new things, and find small adventures so I look forward to finding more fitness and active things for us to incorporate into our lives. I'm looking forward also to getting to know you all!

Hi! My name is Courtney and I just joined SP about a week ago. I'm a SAHM to Adalia who will be 5 next month, and Morrigan who is 20 months old. We stay pretty busy! I'm lucky- I found a gym with a daycare so I'm actually able to work out, which is something I haven't been able to do before. I've still got a lot of baby weight to lose, on top of the weight I gained from just having a poor lifestyle. I'm ready for a change! My goal is to lose 50 lbs by Christmas. (I'm currently 180 and only 5'2) in order to be able to chase my munchkins around a little better! Also 3 out of 4 of my grandparents have diabetes so I'm trying to avoid that route in my later years (I'm 26) by getting in shape now. Good luck to everyone and I look forward to hearing your stories!

Hello! My name is Wendy and I am a 26 years old with a 2.5 yr old son and 7 month old daughter. I was 120lbs pre-baby#2 and need to lose the last 5.4lbs to get back to that. As of today, I have officially lost ONE pound since being back on Sparkpeople (I was on for several years & then took a reprieve)! That's big for me because I did it with a healthy diet change & counting calories instead of having breastfeeding help me to take the pounds down. Breastfeeding was doing it up until a few months ago when I hit a plateau.
Look forward to meeting you all!

A little about myself...

My name is Nicki, I am 31, married with 2 beautiful little girls. My oldest is Annabelle, she is 3yrs old going on 13. My youngest is Emily and she is 7 months old. I was doing great with weight loss after baby number 2. Lost all the weight I gained with my pregnancy plus a good 20 pounds... I went out to celebrate my 31st birthday and since then, over the passed 3 months I have gained 15 pounds back! I'm so disappointed in my gain, but I know that since I've done it before I can do it again.

Like a lot of people I have been struggling with my weight for many years. I want to be healthy for my kids, I want to be healthy for my husband, but most importantly I WANT TO BE HEALTHY FOR MYSELF! I want to feel good about myself and I want to like what looks back at me in the mirror.

I know this will not be easy... If it were I wouldn't be where I am today. Like other attempts at weight loss, I know that I will fall off plan. I know there will be plenty of lazy days. However, I also know that if I really want this, I will need to pick myself up and keep plugging along. I can't let a bad day or week stop me from reaching my goals.

Hi, I am Leslie. I am 44 and a first time mom with a now 2 year old, Zachary! He is such a blessing and joy, not to mention gorgeous! I am extremely obese at 350 pounds. I was 305 when I got pregnant and I actually only gained 5 pounds during the pregnancy. But I have gained 40 pounds over the last 2 years and it is getting harder to move! Some days it is almost impossible to keep up with him. If I didn't have such an energetic hubby that wants to help, I don't know what I would do! My main goal right now is to be able to take Zachary places or do things with him and somewhat be able to keep up with him! I am so leery of diets at this point in my life, I almost hate to try again. But I can't check out now, Zachary is only 2! God bless you all!

Oh, thank you.Making stuff there brought healing from my stress and bouts of depression.I lost 10 lbs.from the relief of negative emotions alone. Since I got so many items, I have to sell them :)

I am gearing to lose 15 more lbs, so I am exercising a lot .My real stuggle though is controlling my food intake, since I use it to socialize with my family and friends...

My name is Megan. I am 24 years old and was working until life happened in the midst of the economic crisis and I became unemployed. I picked up and moved across the great state of Colorado and enrolled full time into school last year (going for my LPN). I have a 3 year old son who acts like he is five and has more energy than I have ever seen in my life. I realized I needed to do something when I hopped on the scale one morning and it hit 250... I weighed 260 when I gave birth to my son but I had lost all the baby weight within 3 months after and went back to my normal (still over weight) 217. I've only been at this weight loss attempt since May 27th but have made great strides losing 12 pounds already.. The hardest part for me is actually sticking to it since my family is not worried about being obese themselves and it is just my son and I it makes it hard for us... I know this group will help and I will find comfort knowing I am not the only one about to pull my hair out with the trying moments of having a preschooler, but it's one thing about my life I wouldn't ever change :-) Now if only I can get healthy enough to keep up with him!!!!! ha!

Hi my name is Melinda, i m new around here, or at least learning this time. I joined some time ago but just could not give the time I needed to really get the feel of things, or get them going. I just graduated with a bachelors degree and decided that it was time to get back to me.
I am single with a wonderful son who is helping me stay on top of things and get I into shape.
My son is five years old and normally a blast. This summer not so much we had a set back, he broke his elbow about three weeks ago.
Still trying to figure how everything works and how to make me time during the day to do what I need.
I enjoy doing crafts, reading, and spending as much time as I can with my son.
Any ways nice to meet everyone.

Hello My name is Ashley and I went from working single mom to stay-at home engaged mom. My daughter will be turning 4 this July (I can't believe how fast she has grown) her name is Kaylea but we call her Kbug. I don't have many IRL mommy friends. Kaylea and I love doing crafts together and we are working on her summer reading goal of 80 books right now. After Kaylea is in bed I enjoy reading or one of my fiber crafts (knitting, cross stitch or crochet) or I am working on my Associates of Paralegal Studies.

Hey all! I'm Rochelle and I have two great kids, Stevie (5) & Leigha (2) who keep me very busy! I've been using SP for a few months now and I really like how it offers easy, flexible & realistic exercise/nutrition ideas for a busy household, like mine.

Hi there!

My name is Emily. I have been a member of this group for years, but only recently have been active in it. I started my first SP challenge this month and it has helped me a lot.

I have two girls under the age of 5. Brylie is my precious first daughter who turned 5 in December. Mikayla is my little darling, and she is just shy of 20 months old.

Hi, I am Amy and was introduced (and loved) this group when I was active on SP 4 years ago when I had my, then almost 2 year old. I now have an amazing 5 1/2 year old and an almost 2 1/2 year old. I work, take online classes, have a busy kindergartener an the 2 1/2 year old never stops moving. I am getting back into my weight loss and with no more kids in the future Im hoping to keep the weight off this time (I didnt regulate very well during my pregnancy!) I managed to lose 70 pounds after my first son and hoping to do the same after this one. =D

Hi, I'm Renee and I have a 5 year old and an almost 2 year old. They are fun and energetic and smart. I wanted to be sure to join this team on me re-sparking because I think that this group particularly understands the challenges of cooking for a family and the fact that days come when going to work is what I do to relax! My Mother's Day gift to myself was joining SparkCoach and trying re-energegize my weight loss and general health improvement efforts.

Hi! I'm Cari and my son Carter is 21 months. Whew, they're a whirlwind, aren't they??? I was seriously underweight until college, where the dining hall filled with all-you-can-eat fettuccini alfredo and fried foods was my only source of "nutrition". It's been downhill since then, but I'm making a change! I need to be able to keep up with a toddler and get myself to a healthy weight before I am willing to be pregnant again. I want to be as healthy as possible for myself and for my family, and I can't wait to meet all of you who are on that same journey!

Hello, I'm Stacey and I am the mother of a 7 year old boy (7 1/3 if you ask him) and 2 1/2 year old girl They're the best brother/sister team I've had the pleasure to raise. They love each other so much! My husband and I believe our daughter was born for the sole purpose of taking care of her big brother. She comes to his defense whenever he is displaying bad behavior and my husband or I discipline him. It's cute and helps hubby and/or I step back and assess how bad the behavior really is, so she's kind of toned down the household.

In any case, it's great to be back and part of this group. Last time I was active my son was two and now he's seven and has a little sister. Time goes by too fast!

Have a fabulous day everyone!

Stacey P

I'm done having babies, so now my focus is on getting my body in shape!

Not trying to be skinny/thin-just comfortable in my own skin.

Hi all! I'm the mother of a delightful two and a half year old girl. I'm at home with her all day and having a very hard time avoiding my fridge. I've had to lose some weight before, but I'm finding it a lot harder this time around. I could definitely use some support.

Hi everyone! I'm Laila, and I have a 21 month old son named James. I work full time as a librarian at a public branch. I sometimes feel completely overwhelmed, as I'm sure most mothers do, whether they work outside the home or not. There is just not enough time in the day to do everything. I am not Super Woman! emoticon

I have been active on SP since January, but just decided to join this team. I've lost 9 pounds so far - slowly! Slow and steady seems to be my way in this process. I do feel good about what I've accomplished but I want to lose about 20 more pounds by the end of the year. Thanks for reading!

Hi! I'm Amy. I'm 32 and mama to two crazy kids who are 13 months apart. My son will be 2 next month (so I'm just about to officially qualify for this group), and my daughter will be 1 in June. I work 3/4 time, and I have just started to carve out some time to work out and spend a little time on myself - it has me feeling like a new person!!!

Hi,

I'm Amanda, a 37 yr old mother to 4 fantastic kids. Two are teenagers (16 and 14) and the other two munchkins are 4 and 2 1/2. My younger two are the polar opposite of their older siblings. Where the older 2 were calm the younger are very high energy. Never a dull moment in my home. I just graduated college and i'm getting married in July so i wanted to lose some weight (most of it carry over from the kids). Once the wedding is done i'll need to come up with another goal (the kids are always the top one, but i need something to work towards). I don't want to reach that first goal and just stop. I need to be in this for life, because i really want to be here for my kids and future grandkids.

The elevator to success is out of order. You'll have to use the stairs...one step at a time.

Hello! My name is Sophie and I have four children. Two girls, ages 5 and 3, and two boys, ages 2 and 11 months. I'm a full-time college student and a stay at home mom. Normally I am crazy busy which has made it difficult to find time and energy (at the same time) to exercise. I have always struggled with my weight and was recently told that I have high blood pressure. I've been on and off with Sparkpeople and I just need to stick to this. I have too many kids to raise and I need to be able to keep up with them.

I look forward to interacting with this group more. Thanks!

Hi there. My name is Shannon. I have a toddler named Simon who just turned two in February. He was born 11 weeks early, and was fully caught up to his peers before 18 months. I also have his two big brothers who are 12.5 and 15 years old. I homeschool in the mornings and work part-time in the afternoons.

Lost a lot of weight after having Simon, thanks to breastfeeding and being constantly on-the-go to see him in the NICU for nine weeks. But now that he's starting to (ever so slowly) wean from the breast, I've packed on all that weight again. Well, not ALL of it, just most of it. I'd like to start losing again before I gain back those last five pounds.

The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.

Hello all! I am 28 years old and have battled with weight my whole life. First I'm heavy then I'm healthy, then I'm heavy, then I'm healthy...back and forth, back and forth. Well I'm sick of it and finally ready to change my lifestyle!. I have a wonderfully sassy, soon to be 3 year old little girl named Kylee. Even with her sassy attitude, she is amazing and so much fun. She has so much energy and makes me jealous because of how much she eats and how she maintains a healthy and fit weight.

I am happily married to the love of my life and this year will be 5 years!! We have been together for 7.

I am a huge animal lover, we currently have a 9 year old German Shepard (Maggie) and 3 cats (Rajah, Deigo, and Bruce). My husband's not a big fan lol.

Looking forward to working with all of you to achieve our goals.

Hello. I am a mommy of 2. I have a wonderful daughter who is 3.5 and then I have a son who is 13.5.....I know what in the world was I thinking starting over again??? LOL.

My daughter is ornery...very ornery. She puts my son to shame on the ornery scale. He still asks if he can have a drink or something to eat....my daughter on the other hand already got it, opened it, and dumped it somewhere.

I have been overweight most of my life. I got very heavy after I had my son. Got back down to about 215 (heavy but waaay better). I slowly ballooned up again after meeting my daughter's dad, the love of my life. When I got pregnant with my daughter I was 242. But I have a wonderful body that looses weight when it is pregnant. So I delivered at 225. Here is am 3 years later at a whoooping 268. If only I could be pregnant all the time without the baby at the end!

I recently said that I have become: frumpy, bumpy, dumpy, and lumpy. It is time to find me again...the real me. She is in here, just to shy to come out just yet.

Hello! My daughter will turn 4 on March 5th. Where has the time gone? Seems like she was just a baby not to long ago. One minute I am wishing she could tell me what she wants and the next she talks to me like a person. emoticon

I really want to get into better shape so we can play more together. I feel like I could never keep up with her.

Hi everyone, I'm new here!

My twins just turned 3, so I officially needed to find a Sparkteam for preschoolers!

I joined almost 2 years ago, had a strong start, then got derailed. Now I'm back and getting into the swing of things again. Looking to lose more weight and get back into running.

Want my kids to have a healthy, happy mom!

Hello. My name is Davina. I have a 2 year old and a 4 year old, along with a 13 year old and 11 month old. I have tried SparkPeople in the past and most recently Weight Watchers. I had a difficult time making the WW meetings, because the only session you could bring children to was on Monday mornings. We just never could get out of the house on time. So it's been back to SparkPeople. Since my last son's birth, I have lost 60 pounds. Unfortunately, I had baby weight from my previous two pregnancies that I also needed to lose when I got pregnant with my youngest son. At this point, I want to lose another 80 pounds. I have a black belt in karate and really want to get back into fighting form, for myself, my boys, and my husband.

My name is Teri, and I'm 28. I've been using Spark since 2008 on and off, trying to be mostly on anymore!! I have a two year old named Logan, and he is a bundle of energy. I've been trying to get myself back into shape so I'm not feeling old and useless with him, and also because last time I was pregnant, I gained 72 pounds(as of the day before I had my son, the day I went into labor.) I want to get down to a healthy weight so if I do end up with a lot of weight gain again, I won't be stuck wearing yoga pants in the largest plus size at Target because it was the only thing that would fit! I also am trying to make sure I instill healthy habits in my son because of the genetics that are there. I want my child to be a normal weight, and not overweight like I was.

~Live, laugh, and love everyday~

Hello! I'm a mom of a beautiful 17 months old (almost 2 years, so I thought you would accept me... hehe). I'm doing this all for her, I want her to have a happy mother comfortable in her skin as a role model. It took us 5 years to have her (during which I gained LOTS of weight because of all the stress) and we couldn't be happier right now - except my weight issue.

Looking forward to talk with you all! =)

Hi, My name is Susan and I'm a mother of 5 great kids, Estuardo 18, Andres 12, Gabriela 9, Ariel 6, and Santiago 3. I actually joined this group a very long time ago and unfortunately never introduced myself or participated in any discussions :( I used to have 2 jobs, but I am now a student so I have a little more ME time, just a little... I started this weight loss journey after my last child was born and I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's which just means that I had hyperthyroidism at some point and after the baby it turned into hypothyroidism. I was 183lbs. after he was born and I'm only 5ft. tall. I now weigh 146lbs. and I'm very much looking forward to losing these last 20lbs. with you gals and REALLY getting back into shape. :D

Hi everyone! I'm Diana, mom to 2 1/2 year old Arabella. She is my only and it took me almost 11 years to conceive her! I have PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) and struggle with my weight because of that. It certainly doesn't make it any easier to get it off. I am wanting to be a better and healthier me so I can be a better mom. All the support and motivation I can get is what I need! :) I'm glad I found this team!

I have lost using SparkPeople before! Then I gained it all back plus some. I've been on and off here for years now. Ready to make this time count! :)
