Congrats on your beautiful new baby girl! How have you been liking mommyhood so far? I'm sure you're loving it! I was the same age as you when I had my first baby. I'm now 46 with a 6yo and a 3yo. Check in and let us know how everything is going!

Welcome and congratulations on the new bundle. Love the name Olivia by the way!
One thing that you'll find about this site is that there's a strong focus on consistency, which can be nice when the pounds take some time to come off. Even without MS to contend with (and that's a huge thing), it took me about a year to take off 30 pounds when I first joined. By the end of that first year though, I wasn't just 30 pounds lighter but WAY healthier. I think you'll really enjoy it here. Keep us updated!

On June 23 I gave birth to my first child Olivia Grace , via c-section at age 38. I started out my pregnancy obese but would like to adopt better eating and exercise habits that hopefully my daughter will learn so she doesn't have to grow up overweight like I did. Once I get the doctors okay I plan on walking and (when baby Olivia allows) doing an exercise tape once or twice a week in addition to modifying my eating plan. I have MS which is an additional hurdle but I know that losing weight and having a healthier lifestyle will hopefully make me feel better and (hopefully) make the time between relapses longer.
