Welcome back to 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!

Mel, welcome back. For what it's worth I weigh less now than I did after any of my kids were born, but that was 40 years ago. Maintenance is a long wonderful time, and you never know what the decades will bring, one day at a time. Enjoy your kids! In the blink of an eye they'll be giving you grandchildren.

I wanted to re-introduce myself to the team. I've been a member for a couple of years now, but I got pregnant, gained weight, and went through the loss cycle again. I'm still not quite AT goal, but I'm realizing that post baby, I might not reach that pre-baby weight again. Now, I'm looking to learn to accept where I am and be happy with that, even if I don't lose those last 7 lbs. It's time to start transitioning to maintenance and accept where I am and not stress over those last few pounds! I'm stronger than I was at my goal weight before. I'm far more focused on my fitness "this time 'round" than I was the first time. I've got a great and complete family. I'm far happier now than I was when I hit my goal last time.
Today, I celebrate my baby's first birthday and my "birthday" of transitioning to maintenance!

Imperfection is important. If we were all perfect, then there would be no such thing as growth, and everyone would be extremely boring, which is, paradoxically, not that perfect.-- Dr. Matt
