congrats on your new baby and welcome to the team! The hardest part is getting started on your weight loss but once your in your routine for a few months you look back and think how did I ever eat that stuff or that MUCH to begin with?
I too had weight to lose before we got pregnant and I wish I would have lost it before we tried. But I'm going to do it right this time and lose my weight before we have #2
I can't believe I am down over 70 pounds since last year!

Congratulations on your little one first off! Babies are soooo awesome!
I had my 7th child 3 months ago and it's been sheer joy since he arrived. Amazing how each new child just makes everyone sooo happy!
Just stick with spark people and you will acheive your goals. I know I've tried everything out there and this is the only one that makes sense and works!
I know a big motivation for me was my kids. I wanted to be able to play with them and run with them and I needed to be healthier to do that. Now I find that they are also my greatest help. My older kids work out with me and cheer me on...my younger ones keep reminding me how beautiful I am and how great I'm doing. And none of them complain about the changes in all of our eating habits...lolol.
My kids still eat the "bad" stuff...but now it's all in moderation... so on top of feeling awesome about how I'm doing on this journey, I also feel awesome knowing I have set them up to have a great relationship with food and a better understanding of taking care of their bodies and selves!
Enjoy yourself here..it really is easier than it seems!
