Getting yourself in shape before you get pregnant is such a smart idea! You can continue to be active even when you are pregnant, and it should make labor a bit easier for you too! A month before my son was born, I entered a fundraiser walk to earn money for the birth home. Another woman who was as pregnant as me actually jogged most of the time! I couldn't walk for several days after the event, but at least I made it to the end!

I started SP at 138 lbs in October 2010. My goal weight was supposed to be 125, which I reached on January 17, 2011. I have stayed at 125 (give or take a few pounds) ever since.

Well done!
I too have been maintaining, but since Feb 2010. My love is cardio and I do lots of it. Because I am limited to 5 lb weights, ST isn't effective for me, at least on the upper body..Diligent tracking of food and fitness really is the key to be able to hold the line against weight gains..
All the best with your goal! keep up the great work!!!

Congratulations and welcome to the team! I've also recently joined and just hit my goal today, yay! I've also been transitioning to more strength training and a bit less cardio with great results. Hope to see you around the team!

My name's Tina. I lost more than 90 pounds between March 2010 and March 2012 and have been keeping if off ever since. Had a baby at the end of April 2016 and am working to get back to my pre baby form, or at least as close to it as I realistically can!

I have been Sparking since July 2011 and loving every minute of it! I am proud to say I have been maintaining my goal weight of 130 lbs (+/- 2 lbs) since the beginning of February!

I had good motivation to keep the weight off for the first 3 weeks - I have a reward/incentive program going with my husband for working out and I got a nice cash bonus if I met and then maintained my goal weight for 3 weeks. That was almost 2 weeks ago and so far so good. I did let loose a little that first week (bought some candy - but kept my indulgences to less than 200 calories a day) but since then I have done a pretty good job.

I was excited to see this group being talked about in the comments on one of Dr. Birdie's blogs about maintaining. This is exactly the kind of support I want and need!

I track my food every single day and work out 6 times a week. Over the last couple months, I have transitioned to less cardio (but more variety) and more ST. I have gotten used to staying in a lower range of calories as a result. I want to increase my lean muscles mass but keep my weight about the same.

I am hoping to get pregnant soon so I know I will not be maintaining my actual goal weight - but I want to maintain my habits so I have a happy, healthy pregnancy and am able to lose the weight afterwards!

Looking forward to getting to know some of my teammates!
