So today I'm trying out spark people for the second time and I'm would like to use the resources better this time to help me be a healthier person, for myself.

I'm 25, been married for 5 years, had my first child 10 months ago, and I am stuck in a rut with my weight and health.

Honestly the last time I was working out 3+ days a week was right before I got married. I always have the excuse that it is easier to exercise when you are single, because that is the only time in my life that I was committed to exercising.

I have never been in GREAT shape. I was always a little over weight but not enough for me to buckle down and do some thing about it.

I moved to Texas with my best friend and her family when I was 18, that is when I started gaining more weight. I probably gained 15 to 20 pounds in 4 months and made a good decision to move home. I stayed at 165 until I got a job as a life guard at a girl scouts center where I lost about 20 pounds in another 4 months. I was 19 years old.

I continued to work out, but the weight was coming off a lot slower, I basically maintained 140-145.

When was almost 21 I got married and that's when I stopped working out. I blame it on not owning a scale, getting a 9 to 5 office job, wanting to spend time with my husband when we could (he was working and going to school), being in a new city, not enough money to join a gym.

Now I'm a very inactive person, my all time high weight was when I was pregnant, about to pop at 205 after having my daughter I have gone down to 198 (my all time high not being pregnant.). It has been 10 months since I have been pregnant and I am feeling ready to change my lifestyle.

I'm very nervous, hopefully that could mean excited.
