My first goal is to reach 160 pounds. This is essentially what I would look like at this weight.

Three c-sections and three kids later, and I'm still trying to get to a healthy weight. I need a support system, and I'm hoping to find one on Sparkpeople. I also still have no idea a meal plan to follow or an exercise program. Hopefully, I can figure it out.

*** I found out that a healthy weight for someone who is my height is 135-155. That is A LOT less than I weigh, so I really need to make weight loss a priority.

"You can't leave footprints in the sands of time if you're sitting on your butt. And who wants to leave buttprints in the sands of time?" -- Bob Moawad. (Saw this on another
girl's page!)

A healthy body is a guest chamber for the soul: a sick body is a prison.

"Prepare your mind to receive the best that life has to offer."

"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow."

"Enjoy life. There's plenty of time to be dead."

"Every time you wake up and ask yourself, "What good things am I going to do today?", remember that when the sun goes down at sunset, it will take a part of your life with it."

"When one of your dreams come true, you begin to look at the others more carefully."

A dream becomes a goal when action is taken toward its achievement.

"Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times."

    Well, after having a C-section I was really busy sitting around and breast feeding; I'm sure you can relate to that too! After being able to eat sweets again, I did just that! Luckily, because of the breastfeeding, I wasn't gaining weight even though I was eating a lot of dessert. I tried keeping the carbs down for the rest of the day though. Once I was totally back to normal after the c-section, I just felt motivated to lose weight. And as you can see, I still haven't lost very much, even after 5 months, but I don't have any sweets in the house anymore. And I think I had an advantage by not gaining any weight during pregnancy, because that probably would have just discouraged me. I'm still trying to make it a habit to follow the same eating plan I had to follow while pregnant. Good luck to you!

    First and foremost, congrats on your new little one!! How exciting!! I was over anxious to lose my baby weight after my second child was born in October. I kept on trying to start exercising and my body kept telling me to take it easy. I started slowly and basically just counted calories and exercised. I did Jillian Michaels' 30 day shred which really seemed to kick my metabolism in gear. I gained 70 lbs. with both of my pregnancies, but the weight seems to be coming off faster after my second. My grandmother told me it's because I am chasing after my preschooler all the time on top of everything else. emoticon

    Looks like you joined a number of very appropriate teams - good for you - very proactive. Do you know about - it's a sister site of sparkpeople for pregnant people and those who have just given birth. Check it out!

    Enjoy your life with your new son - eat healthy schedule in exercise time for yourself - you are important and in the long run you will have more energy for him and be setting healthy examples as he grows up!

    Hi! Having a baby is a good reason to gain weight. Things are good here. I'm losing again what I lost before. I've struggled for quite a while but am finally getting consistent again.
