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.

An unbelievably overused quote, but still true... and appropriate for this weight loss journey.
