This was around the end of Sept 2013... visiting Mesa Verde with my honey and my Mama

Workshop over the summer 2013. Fun! Haha

I have been using SparkPeople since January '12, and I lost 50lbs in the first 5 months (65lbs in total)! I maintained at about 168-172 until about February of '13, when my weight started fluctuating between 170 and 190. This lasted until about April of '15 when I found out I was pregnant!

Fast forward to two years later, April of '17. Through pregnancy and breastfeeding (they tell you you can lose weight with breastfeeding, they don't tell you that some women gain weight at this time...) I've gained back around 100lbs. Oh my god, I can't believe I finally typed that out here on my page. I'm now officially my heaviest I've ever been at around 270. My previous heighest weight was in '07 when I weighed about 260. A few months ago I had been seeing 275 on the scale, but in the blur of new-mommyhood I haven't much cared. I've had it in my head for about 6 months that I want to start losing weight again and I've gone down about 5 lbs, which I guess is the right direction.

It seems so much easier when I look back at the time I had to devote to myself and my health, and it gives me a whole new way of looking at things. I used to spend my free time hiking and playing disc golf... now, I have a pretty strict schedule of waking up, taking care of the baby, getting ready for work, working, coming home, making dinner, getting the baby ready for bed, going to bed. Sometimes I'm happy to get in enough time to check my Facebook, between work and a toddler, life is on the move! So what better time for me to be on the move too??

I have the motivation - to be a role model for my little girl, to feel better, to move better, for my health and my back...
I have the goals - 100lbs lost, be able to move better, get control of my eating habits and my stress...
I have the tools - Along with SparkPeople, I also joined Weight Watchers for an extra bump for a few months. I also use an app called Super Better. I'm open to fun apps... I actually play Pokemon Go with my husband too for some exercise. :D I also have an incredibly supportive husband.

All I need now is to just jump in and DO IT!

This past week I've been working hard at tracking food and trying to be a little bit more active. I'm going to keep this momentum going!
