Hi everyone! I'm back after a short detour into bad habits...I am a married mom of two. My son who is almost 3 has an ASD spectrum disorder, while my 13 month old daughter has no delays at all. In fact, she's advanced. I am a trained nurse by profession. I am 28 years old and looking to make a new me happen before I turn 30. I am currently training with my husband for a 5K that we will run in September. My family is the main reason I am doing this, besides doing this for ME! I just recently lost a baby to miscarriage, so now I am hoping to get healthy before trying to have another baby. I'm a busy mom, but I love to talk! Feel free to message me if you'd like to talk about ANYTHING!

Hi this is so great. I need to lose all my baby weight. I have a 2 month old baby boy and two older daughters 10 and 8 years old. I am hoping to melt that fat away but find it a lot harder this time around. I am looking forward to getting to know people on this site, it's great to be around other moms.

Hi, my husband and I have been married 17 years and we have 4 children ages 2, 9, 12, and 14. The big gap inbetween the last two is due to a vasectomy and then a reversal. :) I'm trying to lose a little weight but I'm also trying to conceive and if we do become pregnant I plan to count every calorie so that I don't gain the usual 50-60 pounds. I'm 5 feet tall and right now weigh 117. I'd like to get down to 110 if possible and if I get pregnant before then I don't want to gain more than the recommended weight (I think its 25 pounds?). I look forward to getting to know everyone here. :)

I'm new here. My hubby and I have 2 sons, soon to be 9 and soon to be 7, and 1 daughter who is almost 10 months. My cousin and her hubby have a baby girl who is almost 6 months. We are soon going to be starting a Mommy and Me program in our area. I believe it's almost the same as MOPS. We're just going to do our own thing though. I can't wait!! I'm so excited for play dates and such!!!
It's all about baby steps!

Hi! I'm Christina and I just had my third baby boy on Nov 3. I really need to get back into shape. I don't have a lot to lose, but finding time to work out is going to be hard, but what isn't??? I'm not a MOPS member, but have been thinking about starting one at our church. I'll continue to pray about it....

Hello to all of you! I am newer to SP and also to this MOPS forum. However with my life experience as a stay at home momma to three, degree in Therapeutic Recreation, current training as a holistic health coach and absolute love of encouraging others I thought I could offer some positive energy and love to you! I enjoy food, love God and find the ocean as a part of me. My favorite healthy snack is carrots and hummus. My favorite bad snack is baked goods. My greatest barrier to health is sleep deprivation. My greatest strength is the support of my husband and our God. What are yours?
Food nourishes my physical body & God's Word is nourishing my soul.

Welcome all new members. I really hope that you are finding your way around our team. Please take a few moments to introduce your self to the team as well as let us know your kids ages. We are so excited that you decided to join us. If you have any questions please let me know!
Hi Moms... LOL, I just joined my local MOPS group! (YAY) and we had our first meeting. I'm loving it! It's also really nice that the mom who got me to go was a friend that I met at another mommy and me group hehe...
Anyway, I'm Ruth. I'm a happy wife and mom. I have a beautiful red-headed daughter who will be two in December. and an incredible hubby to whom I'll be married for 5 years in March. We moved to a new town right after we found out I was pregnant, and I'm still feel really new in my "adopted" hometown. I'm finally starting to try and meet new people and make friends... but for someone who's usually a social butterfly, I've been finding it really hard!
I've been incredibly lucky to be a stay at home mom these past 2 years, and although I'm going back to work part time, I still really feel like I SAHM anyway (I'll be working a few hours in the evenings during the week, and a few hours every other weekend). We'll see how it goes!
Hugs, and I'm really looking forward to this group!
I'm doing the Dukan Diet and should be at my goal weight by September of 2012
Hugs Everyone, Ruth

I am a new mom of a 5 month old and a step mom to a 5 year old. I just joined my local MOPS after sarai was born. I am trying to get back into shape and I love connecting with moms who might be hitting the same milestones that I am dealing with. Like how do you get your children to sleep through the night with out a bottle in the middle if they are on formula and cereal?
Hello! I have been a member of SP for quite some time, but I am just getting back on track and ready to loose this weight! I am the momma of 4 kids (9,7,5,3) and the finance director of the MOPS group at my church. Would love to meet some new friends along the way! :)

I am a new member. I have been working w/ Sparkpeople for a while, but lately have had a couple of big losses in my family, which sidetracked me. I am ready to get back at it. I have a four year old son (turns 5 May 19) and a 2 year old daughter (turns 3 April 12.) So they keep me busy along with working and the hubby! I am anxious to lose the rest of my weight, so I can run with my kids and not feel like I am going to pass out!
