I am 33 years old, married with 2 children. I have been struggling with maintaining a healthy weight since pregnancy with my first child. I gained 70 pounds with her and 60 pounds with my second child.

I have been away from spark for at least 6 months. In that time, I have gained weight. I am sick of not having any clothes that fit and having to buy bigger clothes. I am going on vacation at the end of May with my family. We're headed to the beach. I know I can't lose my goal weight by then, but I want to lose at least 10-15 pounds.

My husband is finally on board with us both losing weight. With this added support, I believe we'll both be more successful. I am starting my new healthy habits in the morning. This time, I have also decided to set smaller weight loss goals. Once I hit my first goal of 180, I'll set a new goal. I want to be successful. My kids need me to be around when they are older and at this rate, I don't think I will be.

My Goals:
I want to lose 46 pounds and be healthy. I have set a short term goal of 26 pounds to achieve over the next few months. Then, I'll work on the last 20 pounds.

I want to teach my children healthy living.

I want to look great for myself and my husband.

I want to inspire my husband to become healthy as well.

I start the DNP program in the Fall 2012. It's going to be difficult with school, but I plan to continue on my healthy path.


My Program:
I have started going to the gym again. I love the new elliptical machine they have. It has a total body workout program. So, I'm able to get an upper body workout at the same time. My goal is at least 30 minutes 5 days a week.

I am also planning to do additional strength training at least 3 times a week. I really need to get my tummy and other areas toned.

I am drinking 8 glasses of water a day and a minimum of 5 freggies.

I get 8 hours of sleep a night.

Most of all, I utilize sparkpeople and monthly challenges with MOMMY to WOWWY team.



Personal Information:
I live in Nashville. I love taking pictures and scrapbooking. I am a mother of a 6 and 3 year old, so I don't get much time to scrapbook.


Other Information:

    Just stopping by to wish you best of luck in BLC17! emoticon I too gained a lot of weight (like 80 lbs.) in my pregnancy (DS is 2 1/2 ). And I know how hard it is to find time to workout with one little one, I can't imagine what it's like for you with 2! The BLC is a great place for the motivation we need to keep on trucking! I hope you reach your goals this round and have a ton of fun!
