I am 40 years old. I have three kiddos 18(m), 15(m), and 6(f). I was relatively fit and in good shape until after each pregnancy. After the first I was able to drop back down to only 15 lbs higher than pre-pregnancy(135); however, I felt better at that weight(150). I got within 15 of that weight(165) after the second and then yo-yo'd until my third. I actually lost 10 during that pregnancy and ended at 230. For the last six years I have fluctuated between 220 and 240 for seemingly no reason. My diet never has really changed and I dont eat a lot of junk food; however, I have drank ALOT of Coke in my day. About a week ago an old friend from FB asked if anyone wanted to join a group. I asked what the group was about, and it turns out it is fashioned weightloss program that they developed based on peer support, a point system, and changing to healthy habits. I joined! To help me track fitness, water intake, and calories I searched the internet. I found Spark and immediately joined up. It pretty much matches exactly what my FB group, but they add making sure you get daily fruits and veggies, cardio 6 times a week, and strength 2 times weekly.
I have a lot to loose so I am thinking the more support the better. My son will be graduating USMC boot camp in mid to end April. I want to show him that I have made positive choices in my life too.
