This is me and my son

This is what I looked like before I got pregnant at 180 lbs.

I had a baby last November and let myself go. I want to get healthy and lose some "fat" so I can enjoy life while I'm still relatively young. I want to have another baby in the next few years and I don't want to be hugely pregnant. I lost 70 lbs. a few years ago and once I got pregnant I gained it back, sadly. I need to gain control of my weight and change my lifestyle so I can be the best ME I can be! I have been overweight on and off for the past 10 years and have never been what you would call skinny. The last time I was at a healthy weight was in the tenth grade and I was 155 lbs. I am so ready to change and hopefully with the help of sparkpeople it will make it a bit easier for me.

My Goals:
I want to lose all the extra weight with cardio and tone up with weight training. I am going to try losing 20 pounds at a time so it won't seem so overwhelming. I have a lot of weight to lose but not totally sure of a certain number. I would like to be between 140-160 lbs by next summer. I would rather have a goal size of size 8-10.

My Program:
I am doing 40 min of cardio 6 days a week right now but some days I do more than 40 min. I am going to incorporate strength training into my program gradually. I keep track of my foods and try to stay under 1600 calories a day.

Personal Information:
I live in New Brunswick Canada and I am 26 years old. I am married to a great man and have a wonderful son. My life is pretty great. I just need to get my eating habits changed and make exercise a priority. It's time to put me first for a change.

Other Information:
My fav tv show right now is Grey's Anatomy and I love Big Brother too. I love anything written by Joy Fielding, Nicholas Sparks and VC Andrews. My fav movie and novel is the Notebook. I am a hopeless romantic! I love to go shopping and I am SO looking forward to buying new SMALLER size clothes when I meet my goals.

    Hey you!

    I'll be your weight loss buddy! I read your blog from the 1st. It is hard to stay motivated when you dont see those freakin' damn numbers coming off the scale.
    I agree, you should have lost a few more pounds then the one pound by now. How tall are you? How many calories have you been eating and what type of exercer. have you been doing? I'll see if I can put some numbers together for you.
    You should join the community board I started a little while ago. Its title is "Married under 5 years and gained over 50 pounds?" Its nice to see people in the same boat. Would love to see you there.
    P.S. Don't worry we're gonna get you through this speed bump. You and I are the same weight, so we can compare notes!

    I just commented your post and was checking out your profile. I was at 180 lbs before getting preggo with my first daughter and thought at that time that I was overweight, then after my daughter and up to 233 lbs I thought, "Man I was SKINNY then at 180 lbs!" But it's so weird and awesome now that I'm lower than that and lower than ever before!!!

    Good luck to you girl! You can do it! :)
