I need to lose about 40 pounds. I signed up with a gym, and am determined to get my body to a point where I feel more energetic, look better, and have a LOT more muscle mass. Because you can''t out-exercise a bad diet, I''m going to concentrate on portion control and less processed food. Whole grain instead of white, no trans fats, and lots of leafy greens. Here goes nothing! ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ This is my second time around. When I was close to my first goal weight (155 pounds, my goal was 150) I found out I was pregnant with my second child. I gave birth to a beautiful little girl on April 28th 2008 and am now at the point where I want to try and lose the weight again. I didn''t gain that much during pregnancy but afterwards I went a little overboard and ate pretty much everything that wasn''t nailed down. So now it is time for common sense and some restraint, and I am ready to buckle down and do the work. Spark People works, I have been there and I know from experience. Here''s to losing another 35 pounds! ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ I am 37 years old, married and mom to a beautiful 11 month old baby girl. I am trying to lose 30 pounds because I want to be healthy and fit for my daughter. Since I am still nursing (yes lol, at 11 months) I''m not going to adher to the number of calories that SparkPeople gave me, I am adding 500 a day to their advised number. That''s the amount of energy it takes to breastfeed round the clock, which is what I do.

My Program:
Eating in moderation, leaving out salty and/or fatty snacks, and trying to get more exercise.

Even a journey of a thousand miles starts with one single step.
An unbelievably overused quote, but still true... and appropriate for this weight loss journey.

    Just wanted to applaud you on breastfeeding your daughter. My Julia is 16 months and stills loves to bf. I figure with all the flus going around it's probably the best protection I can give her.

    Congratulations on your spirit-filled ceremony. What a gift from God to start your New Year! emoticon emoticon
