So I am now re-doing my "about me" for the 3rd time but it is all positive!! I have not been on Spark People for about a year it seems but I am back and going to do my best to log in everyday and keep up with all of my wonderful friends. My name is Amanda and I am 24 yeard old from Maryland. I work full time as an HR/Payroll Manager and I am going back to college part time now to pursue my Business Administrative AS Degree! I am engaged to a wonderful man and we plan to marry either this September or next and we have a beautiful 2 year old little boy, Felix! He is my life and I cannot imagine not having him here with me. Before I had my son I always suffered with weight issues. Before I got pregmant I remember getting on the scale back in 2007 (I had my son in 2010) and I weighed then 208lbs which was my heaviest at that time. I gained about 40-45lbs with my son which took me up to 286lbs!! I could not believe it. 2 weeks after I had Felix I instantly lost 20lbs which took me down to 266lbs. When he was 3 months I decided to join Weight Watcher with my aunt and it was the best decision I had ever made regarding loosing weight. I have been on WW now since July 2010 and even though I have had to put my weight loss on pause (the loss of my father, certain family issues, personal things) I have kept on going and will keep on going. I started WW weighing 266lbs and as of yesterday (03/22/12) I now weigh 185.4lbs!! I feel AMAZING!! Weight loss is just now about learning healthy eating but also incorporating exercise. I know am doing the KettleWorx program and run. This is a lifestyle change and will stick with me forever! My goal weight is around 145-150lbs so I have about 35-40lbs to go but I have come this far, I know I can keep on going!!
