With a new year here and a motivation like I've never had before, I begin my trek down the scale and into all the cute little clothes that have been nice on the rack but nowhere near my body lol.

2011 brought a new baby and the need for some medication that had a side effect of weight gain. Now almost a quarter of the way in 2012, the meds are no longer needed, and I can get back to my journey down the scale again.

Member Since: 5/12/2009

Fitness Minutes: 15,144

My Goals:
After having 3 kids, I want to get back down to my pre-babies size. While the number is nice, I tend to build muscle and keep it, so the number is just a number to me. I'll let the fit of clothes be my deciding factor. :)

My Program:
I am an Atkins girl! Low carb works best for me. I had never considered it before, but during my last pregnancy I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I had to really watch my carb intake and I lost weight and I walked out of the hospital weighing less than when I started. After getting out, I went back to eating my normal way and along with some medications, I gained all that weight back and then some. It finally clicked that I need to stay away from carbs. I've been doing it for a month now, and have lost almost 14 pounds. I'm not hungry and have more energy that I have had in a long time. I'm so excited to finally find what works for me.

For exercise, I love Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds dvds. Typically the instructors on dvds annoy me, but Leslie Sansone is very genuine and real. I also walk on my gazelle, and am an exercise bike is in the near future. Oh, and let's not forget that I chase a 5 year old and now a running 15 month old around all day eve
