My name is Monica. I am 33 and proud mother of 3 boys. My eldest is 5, 2 1/2, and most recently, a 7 mo old. I am truly blessed with them, even though they help stay at 147 lbs. At my heaviest I was almost 200lbs..doesn't really because I was pregnant..after the pregnancy, I was about 164lbs. I am 5'4. I have been at 147 for months now. I am stuck. I go to the gym and meet with a trainer. I do fluctuate on activity level at times but have pretty good lately and the number still hasn't budged. It's starting to get to me. I have adjusted my eating..of course, I cave on occasion. (Why I mentioned my babies' fault. If it was for them, i wouldn't have cookies in the house at all.) My 5 yr old gets a cookie. I tell him he can't eat it or if he decides to..he won't have his normal 3 with milk. He tells me that one was for me because he loves me... (mommy melts) How hard was it for me to say no to that cookie?
I am looking to get flatter abs before the summer. This my goal.. I would like to get to 140 for now..but ultimately 135.

It's very important to me to get my weight where I want it. Diabetes run in my family..My mother who I consider healthy.. She is not overweight, eats decently is pre-diabetic. I had gestational diabetes with all my pregnancies. I know I am at an increased risk. If I get it, I want to go down fighting it. I don't want to have regrets. I want to avoid it or put it off as long as possible.

I look forward to be a part of the group... emoticon
