Welcome Kerri!

I'm not from Flint, but I agree. This site really helps with motivation. It's quite eye opening when you start logging what you eat every day! This is a fun way to eat healthy.

Welcome, Kerri. I haven't had kiddos yet, but since I was 15 or 16 I started having up-down-way up-way down-up-down (pattern?!) issues. I grew up just outside of Flint, too. Flushing, actually. So yes, you are among friends! Keep coming back to Spark. I think it's a helpful tool if you use it to the best of your ability. You don't have far to go! Keep going. :-)

You will find your help and motivation here on Spark. This is a great site and if you use all of the tools here you will be successful.

Good luck.

A goal without a plan is just a wish.

You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true.

- You may have to work for it, however.

Hi, my name is Kerri, and I have a 2 1/2 year old son, Christian. We are from the Flint area.
When I got pregnant with my son, I was about 20lbs over weight. I had gained it within the year before I became pregnant. While pregnant I gained 30 lbs, and then within a month afterwards I had lost 40 lbs. I felt really good for just having a baby. I still wanted to lose 10 lbs, but ended up gaining 30 instead!
This year I had decided I was going to lose the weight. I did lose 15 lbs in by march, but then I started slackin. the last 5 lbs. I have been gaining/losing.
I recently found pictures of me from Christmas of 99 and summer of 2000, and boy did I look good, lol. So, now I am getting back on track, and I hope this site will be helpful! So far I really like it!
