I am a 5'1" mother of 5 daughters, ages 16,15,10,3, & 1 in March of 09. I was an avid SparkPerson back in 2007, but then I got pregnant with my 5th & final daughter. Since my daughters birth, I have been breastfeeding, which takes up a lot of time (still am until she is 1), plus raising my other children, one of which has a physical disability. Have been too busy to do anything for "me"!

I gained all the weight I lost on the SP plan when I got pregnant, & I am stuck at my pre-SP weight now. (170+ range) It is time I got back in the game & took off the pounds for good. This time, no pregnanices to come along since Mia was my last child!

I am here for motivation & inspiration!! I just hope I can stay as focused as I did last time I did SP, & lose the pounds so I can fit my clothes by summer!

Staying in my calorie range, doing cardio & strength training 6 days a week, drinking 64 ounces of water every single day, & logging in to SP daily to stay motivated & stick to the program!

    So how did Sunday turn out? I have been waiting for some good news and haven't heard a peep out of you about it. I hope it went as planned if not there is always next week, you are making progress just identifying the problem and trying to address it either way!

    Congrats on the weightloss girl! Yeah it is probably water weight but after you loose that you still lose like crazy if you are doing it right! Don't you wish you could loose 6 pounds every 4 days! You would be to your goal quicker then ever! Keep up the good work girl, it will all be worth it!
