I have always been heavy... I managed to loose 90 lbs once. I kept it off for almost 6 years. Then I got married. Suffered infertility, went through years of infertiltiy treatments. Which can have a direct effect on the thyroid. I ballooned to 180. (from 127) I got pregnant finally! After my first son was born..I weighed 196. I got pregnant again when my son was only 2 months old. I managed to only gain the recommened amount of weight. And now, my youngest son is 7 weeks old and I am at 194. I would like to get back to where I was when I married...135!! I have been pregnant for almost 2 years straight! I am dying to get my body back!

    Glad you found SparkPeople!!! It is making a huge difference for me as well. I have been here for a while but kind of quit and never really used it to the full extent. Once I started logging everything and posting and looking at lots of peoples pages for motivation, it really kicked in. I feel like a completely different person than I was a month ago.

    And I though I had my kids close!!! My oldest was 4 months when I got pregnant with my second. I remember how difficult it was to get me time so I hope you are able to. You have a beautiful family! Good luck on your goals. You will get there!
