In 2006, I lost 50 lbs. I was an action hero--hiking, running, biking, weight-lifting--I loved it all. Fitness was my top-priority. In the past 7 years, we moved to Australia, my dad died, I had 3 surgeries, and we have a toddler and a newborn. Fitness just hasn't been a priority. After my first pregnancy I regained 35 lbs. Now after my second, I'm 20 lbs above my where I was in 2006. That's 10%--that's doable and from experience I know I feel really great at that weight.

I want to regain my enthusiasm and my active life-style. I lost the weight initially because I could make losing weight my major focus.This time, I need to find a balance that builds fitness into my life (without taking it over).

I go back to work in 6 weeks, I just want to lose 3 kg to get started.
