I have been using the Spark program now for years, and it's really been an incredible experience. Although I can't say that I am losing weight, I am maintaining what I weigh (which is something I most certainly did not do while I took a two month break from Spark). I truly believe that the absolute best part of Sparkpeople is the terrific support that I get from everyone on this site. I hope that I can be as good a motivator and as much of an inspiration as the people that I've met here.

I am a wife, mother, student and teacher. I really don't have a lot of time to spend on food preparation or exercise so I try to maximize the time that I have.

Good luck with your journey.

Oct 2012: I am trying to reassess my goals, as I don't seem to be making the kind of progress that I would have liked. I am shaving 20 pounds off my goal weight, and hope that by bringing the goal closer I will be more motivated to reach it.

My Goals:
To lose the weight that I put on BEFORE my pregnancy! (I wrote that two babies ago!)

Current weight loss goals:

1) To get back to my pre-pregnancy weight.

2) To lose ~10% of my body weight (goal weight 150 lbs)

My Program:
To try to be really good about fitting excercise into my daily routine.
I've been doing at least 30 minutes of cardio daily. Missed days get made up with double time the next.
I've started walking more (which in my neighborhood is more like climbing). I love Cathe and Turbo Jam for the days that I can't get out.

Personal Information:
Proud mother of 7 beautiful children.

    And if you're breastfeeding the littlest one, doesn't that totally change your ability to lose weight also?

    So don't beat yourself up for not losing more quickly - you are doing well losing anything!

    Thank you for your comment on my blog - and as a mother of 6, you are doing incredibly well losing 2 lbs a month!!!!! I think baby weight is the hardest to lose, because your body just wants to keep protecting a baby! Our biology is so hard to fight!

    But what a bunch of little cuties you have! Lotsa shana punim!

    Thank you for the nice comment on my blog! I appreciate your encouragement.
    I have 4 children and am working to get the weight off that I gained with the first one! That "child" is now married and a father himself! Good for you starting now. Your family is beautiful.
