Wow! Now THAT's a great motivator! Wonder how she covered up/got rid of stretch marks? Hummm... Some have gone away with time, but most are still there. Wonder what she did? I gained 70 lbs during pregnancy too, how neat! Well, I mean, that she got it back etc... Thanks for the motivation!

I changed the photo of the group to reflect what I would like to think of as one of my primary motivators, seeing someone else who has been there.

This month's motivator is the amazing Suhaila Salimpour. You can read her own words, talking about her struggle to regain her pre-pregnancy weight here:

"When I gave birth to Isabella I had booked a performance only 4 months after I had given birth. I had gained 70 lbs during my pregnancy and could barely do one squat (holding onto a bar) 6 weeks after the birth. I was devastated and had to re build myself each day. My first workout after the birth I just cried though the whole time. I would weep and do my sit ups, weep and do my cardio…. It was like that for about two weeks. Then I stopped crying and felt okay about the struggles. Even to this day I have to talk to myself and keep myself inspired to work out. And it was so hard for me because I was Suhaila and so now I had to rebuild and it began from the inside out. My body would never be the same and now I was going to have to get to know this new body with stretch marks and all…. And love it. I would have to become a better body for the woman I was now to become. "

Enjoying every single moment I can with my husband and little boy!
