My wife recovered greatly after giving birth. But she hadn't been skinny before.

hmm, they do make it hard to find time for myself and to exercise. But as far as eating they are given the same thing we eat for dinner with small changes such as my husband and I are doing keto, so we may have zoodles but I would prepare them real noodles.

My kids are my motivation and models, not a problem! I want to stay alive and functional so I'll be around to ride 100 miles with them, like my 65-year-old dad does with me.

I struggled with my relationship with sweets before I had kids. I didn't want to pass that "forbidden food" issue on to them, so when I learned about Division of Responsibility, and removing the moral value of food, I dove in head first. Through teaching them how to have a good relationship with all types of food, to listen to their hunger and satiety cues, and to pay attention to how they feel after eating, I repaired my own relationship with food.

I also think physical activity is incredibly important, and I'm loving that they're old enough to participate more (10 and 7). The early baby/toddler years were a little harder, but I found ways to fit activity in, like tossing them in a bike trailer and hauling them up hills in Seattle. Pulling 80-100 pounds of kids behind you is great training!

Teaching them how to cook, making eating dinner together a priority, going for walks and bike rides together - good food and great movement are something we share together. We opted out of almost all after-school activities, focusing instead on spending time together as a family. Right now, I've got one kid who takes weekly piano lessons, and then both of them are in a play with weekly rehearsals. That's it.

Now, being pregnant and actually bringing these crazy people into my life - yeah, that did a number on my body. But since we don't do the "clean plate club" rubbish, or cater to picky eaters beyond providing fresh fruit, milk, and a carb (bread, muffins, crackers, etc.) at every dinner, which I have zero obligation to eat, no, they don't make me fat.

Take life one day at a time - enjoy today before you worry about tomorrow.

I guess this is one reason to be thankful for not having kids. I can answer no. I hope you get more answers.

Are your kids making you overweight? Let’s face it: Sometimes convenience wins out. Whether it’s picking food off kids’ plates, preparing unhealthy(ier) meals to suit their tastes or skipping workouts for their activities, how do your children influence some of your poor eating/exercising choices? We want to hear your stories!
