Hello! I hope everyone is going strong today!

My name is Rachel, I'm married, 33 years old with 2 wonderful kids. I found out about Spark People on a message board a couple of years ago. I checked it out, liked the way I could track everything... and then lost interest!

I am now at the biggest I've ever been. I'm very unhappy, struggling through everyday activities with an 18 month old and a 7 year old. I lost weight through both of my pregnancies, only to put it back on, and more, in the months after while staying home with the kids!

I already see a huge difference from exercising this week... I can walk from the basement to the second floor and I don't feel like I'm gonna die! (lol) That's 28 steps! I have been struggling to get in my cardio minutes, but have now started doing 10-30 minute workouts either on here, or on you tube.

I know it's hard to believe, but I'm already down 7.6lbs(I know I shouldn't weigh myself more than once a week, but it's hard not to at first!). That is how bad my diet was before... I had no boundaries. I ate what tasted good, and I ate often! I drank pop constantly, rarely got in even 2 cups of water a day.

I honestly feel that I am ready this time. I'm tired of being so big, I'm tired of feeling horrible all the time. I had so much energy yesterday after doing a 30 minute workout!

I love that SP helps me to see what is lacking in my diet too... I don't eat a lot of meat, so I am in need of protein. I am also struggling to meet my minimum of 1900 calories a day. I'm not trying to starve myself, but I'm making healthy foods and I'm just not hungry all the time.

Well, that's it for now I guess! I'm hoping to be active on the message boards and keep myself accountable! I know my diet won't be perfect, but I WILL record and count everything I put in my body!

~~Question: Why does my weight loss ticker say it's in pounds when I set it up, but kilograms when I save it?? Annoying!!
