UPDATE!!! Progress pics

Well, here it is, all laid out...
At my heaviest, I weighed 235 the day before I was induced for gestational hypertension with my first born in August 2009.
I lost most of the weight, but only got down to 172lbs when I got pregnant with my second. This pic is of me a couple months before I gave birth to my second son in February 2012. I'm not sure how much I weighed in this pic, but I was 222 on D-day.
After my youngest was born, I vowed to get my body back. I joined Sparkpeople and started my weight loss journey. After a few months of working out on my own, I found my Personal Trainer, Justin Mulligan of Rawmana Fitness in San Diego, CA. I wasn't looking for a trainer, but I hired him anyway after talking to him about health and fitness. I knew he'd get me to my goals. And he did!
After working with Justin for a year, I took the plunge and entered my first NPC Figure competition and took home 5th place! I was planning on coming in dead last, but my hard work paid off and I was pleasently surprised that my physique was good enough to take home a trophy. The before part of this pic was taken the month I started training with Justin
I never planned on competing, but now I'm hooked. I'm going to take the time to keep getting better and maybe one day take home a PRO CARD!
