This is what going to Zumba class looks like at 38 weeks pregnant!

Apr 2012 - These capris were my favorite for work, and got me through my honeymoon in Oct 2010!

I lost 65 lbs from March 2011 - May 2012!

In June 2012 I got pregnant and gained only about 32lbs during my pregnancy, and had my beautiful baby boy in February 2013.

March 2013 is being used as a "time-out" just to get to know my son and figure out a new starting point for my body as of April 1st. That is when I will start tracking and exercising consistently again.

I'm using Spark's awesome resources and wonderful community to keep me on the right track!

And what keeps me most motivated? Helping others. Please ask any questions, send any stories my way. I will be here to talk!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

    Thanks so much, Grace! It's hard to weed through the advice sometimes to figure out what is the RIGHT advice -- especially coming from your doctor, what they say carries so much more importance. But from talking to other women who have been pregnant, it sounds like I'm not as weird and bad as she led me to believe, thank goodness! Even my little sister, who has the dream body and always has, told me she gained 45 pounds during her pregnancy, and while I would rather not gain that much, it made me feel better because she does eat well and exercised the entire pregnancy!
