Hello, I'm Tiffany! I'm new to the team & am looking for a Team Buddy! I'm a 25(almost 26) year old, 1st time mom(5 month old). My weight loss began unexpectedly when I found out I was pregnant, I weighed in at 186(66lbs more than recommended), within the first trimester I lose 20 pounds & after giving birth I lost 20 more. I've noticed I'm having trouble being a stay at home mom & maintaining my weight enough to get it down so I joined Spark in hopes of some motivation & encouragement. I love having new buddies & hearing other people's stories so feel free to add me if you'd like! emoticon

Have a Healthy Day!

Hello Everyone, I'm Tiffany!
I'm new to Losing Baby Weight & I'd really like to...Lose the baby weight! I find that I do very well when I know someone else is seeing what i'm doing & hubby doesn't count since he thinks any weight is great. =( Anyway I'm a stay at home mom to a 5 month old, I weighed 186 at my highest, when I found out I was pregnant, during pregnancy I lost 20 pounds, & after I've lost 20. I now have about 25-35more to lose until I'm happy!

Have a Healthy Day!

Hi, my name is Kendra, I had my first baby on March 26. I only gained 34lbs during pregnancy but was overweight before that. I am a sahm and we recently moved out of state so I know no one here. I thought this board would be a good way to keep me on track with my weight loss goals. I have 17 lbs to reach my prepregnancy weight and then want to lose another 36lbs. Can't wait to get to know you girls!

Hi
I am a sahm to a very energetic almost 22 month old boy. This year is the first year I have really felt how heavy I actually am. I notice how much it takes to go up a flight stairs, my joints are starting to not like me and running around after my boy is becoming a chore instead of a joy! While trying to get pg I lost 35 lbs. using the tools and support on Spark. During pregnancy I gained all that back and some. I lost half of it, gained half of that half back and just found food to be a comfort when I was feeling stressed and lonely. I need help, I need support! So here I am, I'm back. I have got to get it together so I can be an active, happier Mommy!

Hello! I've been an off and on user of SP for 3 years now, and now that I have a 6 month old baby girl it's really time for me to commit to changing my lifestyle. It hit me hard yesterday about how unhappy I am with my current health and fitness levels, and my post-baby body needs some serious improvement. It's time to stop making excuses and to start taking care of myself first, at least as much as possible with a baby.

This is going to be difficult, but it has to happen. Things have to change.

Good luck to everyone else!

There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something.

Hello ladies!
My name is Lisa and I just had my first baby January 29, 2010. I have been a member of spark since 2007 but really haven't utilized the site. I did really well during my pregnancy and gained only 24 lbs and left the hospital losing 19 of it. BUT I was overweight when I got pregnant. I do really well with food most of the day until I get home and eat with my husband! His job requires him to walk all day so of course he can eat whatever he wants. I, on the other hand can not. I want to lose weight and be healthy so that I can be a good role model to my daughter as she grows up!

Hi, my name is Deena. I have a beautiful 2 year old daughter named Katelyn and have been married for almost 5 years. I'm 28 years old and work full time. I gained a lot of weight between getting married and getting pregnant. Then I got pregnant and gained nearly 70 lbs. I'm FINALLY down below the weight I was when I got pregnant but I still have 60 more lbs to go to get to a helathy weight.

Hi, all my name is Amy and I became a mother on 2-23-10! I want to be a healthy mom and be a good model for my daughter as she grows. I carry my weight well but am at the heaviest I have ever been. Before my pregnancy I was 169 and considered myself fit with about 10 pounds to lose, I feel my best about 155! Well now I am at 187 and carry 187 well but feel overweight for the first time in my life. My little girl was well worth the gain but I want to reclaim my body back for good! My goal is to 155! I need your help!

Hello,
I am a mom of a 5 1/2 yr old and a 8 month old. I gained a ton during my pregnancy and have not been able to lose it like I did with my 1st. I am very discouraged and could use all the help I can get.

Also, how do i get a weight tracker on my post?

Hi mums,

Im a Swedish married 30 year old woman.

Beginning of March 2010 my beautiful second daughter was born. All wonderful, but left me with a bit extra fluff to get rid off :-D

Im looking to meet new friends on this site during my journey through life that starts with losing 83 pounds. Anywhere in the world. Would be nice to have a mail from someone when you wake up in the morning with an inpirational word or two, and to be able to be the person who makes someone elses day easier too!

And remember: Dont wait for it to happen, just do it! xx

You can do it, so just do it!

Im looking for spark-buddies!

Hey, I am a mother of two vary active children. I realized yesterday that my 5 month old hardly naps and my 3 yr stopped that a while ago. emoticon
I was about 245 when I gave birth to my son and only gained 10lbs. He was 8lbs 13oz so needless to say I think I left the hospital lighter then what I was before. I am currently 202 when I went to the doctors the other day and my goal is about 168. We shall see.

Hi team! I'm a new mother as of 12/3/2009. My beautiful Claire Marie is almost 4 months old now and I'm starting to see that I don't have to eat like I'm pregnant anymore! Before I found out I was pregnant I weighed 160lbs and I am 5'4'. Although that may still be considered overweight, that is where I have been most happy with my body. I weighed less than that before and always felt like I looked "too skinny". Anyways, I currently weigh 220lbs and my goal is to lose all this baby weight by my daughter 1st birthday. I haven't lost very much yet, despite breastfeeding for 2 months, but I also wasn't doing anything either! I'm looking forward to taking me time and working on my health and fitness so I can be the best mom I can be... it won't be too long from now that I'll have a toddler to run after! I would enjoy meeting other moms out there so add me as a friend, I would love to talk to you!

I am a new mommy as of 2/10/10! I gained 50 pounds during my pregnancy... and that was after I was already overweight. Soooo, now I am looking for spark buddies who understand my pain! I am not breastfeeding so I can't even use that as a helpful way to lose the weight. I only lost 20 pounds of baby weight so far and its so not fair! I am looking to lose 60 total to get down to 175!

I can't wait to see the old new me!

Welcome Sarah and Kenyatta!

I am Jen. I am due on April 8th but it could be any day now. I have gained 23 lbs so far and I am 38 weeks. My goal is to loose the weight plus maybe 10 more pounds, not sure I guess I will see when I get there.

Anyways, looking forward to post baby talk about workouts and fitness!

We all can do this!!!

Hi my name is Kenyatta. I am 31 years old as of 1 week ago. I am a wife & a proud mother of 4. A 1 month old, 11yr old, 9 yr old, & 5yr old. I gained lets just say 30 plus pounds while pregnant with my last back & have lost only 11 pounds. I am looking for some spark buddies that understand what I am going though & help keep me motivated.

We can do all thing's through Christ.

I put this on another thread and then I saw this intro thread so I just copied and pasted (sorry if you see my other one too!)

Hey team. I'm Sarah and I'm a 31 year old mom of almost 3. My other kids are 10 and 7 and this the suprise baby. I've been a member of SP for years but in March of 2009 I really took it seriously and lost 45 pounds up until August 8th when I found out I was pregnant. Even then I only gained 7 pounds by about 4.5 months and then my midwife told me I needed to gain more weight... that's when it all went downhill. I am at a 40 pound gain right now and hope to not gain more than 45 total - if I could hold at 40 for the next 3 weeks that would be even better. I know that alot of people can lose baby weight quickly, but I worked SO DANG HARD for those 45 pounds and to see them all pile back on my body was horrific. I need to lose them as quickly as I can. With my first two I had BAD post-partum depression and gained 20-30 AFTER each pregnancy and never lost the baby weight (and having gained 65 with my first and then 20 with the second PLUS that PPD weight I got to my heaviest weight which was 303). This time I am determined that it will be totally different. I am taking natural precautionary measures to make sure that PPD doesn't hit me this time and that I can feel more like a mom and not a zombie. I am totally motivated in spirit - the trick is that I stay motivated even when I'm tired after baby is born and that's why I am here. I am hoping to make some good friends who know what I am going through. I was at 258 when I got pregnant and it's my goal to get back to 258 by my birthday - July 7th. In fact, my personal 50 pound mark would be 253 and my goal reward is a new dress from Torrid - I think reaching that 50 pound goal and getting a new dress would be an amazing b-day gift! I think I can do it! Do you think I can?

Hello! My name is Whittney. I am the proud mother of a 3-month old baby boy named Braxton. He was born on Dec.17, 2009. I joined SparkPeople to get a hold on my nutrition and to lose the weight and possibly more that I gained during pregnancy. I am a stay at home mother and full time on-line college student. My starting weight is 194 and I would like to be down to 144. My journey starts now.

Hi, my name is Sarah and I had my daughter, Julianna, in Oct '09. I lost most of the baby weight and then gained 10 lbs from stress of returning to work part time.

Hi everyone...my name is Danielle & I had my first baby on Halloween 09. I lost some weight just from breastfeeding alone but decided that come January it was time to start working out again and watch what I was eating. I started trying to make it to the gym 3-4 a week aside from watching my little one full time & finishing up some college classes. I have lost 20 lbs in the last 8 weeks since I started working out again & am hoping to lose the rest of the weight to surprise my hubby when he gets home from his deployment :)

Hi! Who doesn't want to lose their post-pregnancy weight? I really want to...but it's just so hard! I had my son a little over 8 months ago. And I'm still carrying the extra pounds. Well, that's why I'm here on SP. I'm looking for motivation and support to help me lose weight. I am hopeful that by the beginning of summer 2010, I will be at or almost at my goal weight.

Hello!! My name is Maureen and I have been a member of SP since the birth of my 2nd daughter Zoey, but stopped being active once I became pregnant with my 3rd daughter nine months later. I had Brooklyn in May 2009 (after a complicated pregnancy and 8 weeks of bedrest), and since I've been sick lately I've managed to get to my pre-pregnancy weight for her. This has really jump started my motivation to lose more weight!! I work FT as an OR nurse and I also have an 11 year old son. I really would like to lose at least another 15 lbs by summer!!

Hi! My name is Vanessa and I'm the proud Mommy to Wyatt born August 1, 2009. I've already lost my baby weight, but have about 65 pounds left to lose before I get to a healthy BMI. I had some complications during my last pregnancy and am determined to get healthy before TTC baby #2.

My baby isn't due until July 3rd so im half way done. Trying to plan and get my goals in order so I have something to look forward to. After my daughter I lost 50 lbs and unfortunately will probably end up having to lose it all again.

Hi everyone! My daughter was born on 8/24. I was on complete bed rest for the last 10 weeks of my pregnancy and put on lots of weight in that short amount of time! I am trying to lose weight and live a healthier life for the sake of my daughter. I want to be an active part of her life, not sit on the sidelines and be the fat mom!! I am happy to be a part of this team and look forward to getting to know some of you!
