My name is Cynthia. I am 26. I struggle with my weight. I have up's and down's. In 2011 I successfully lost 50 lbs with the help of Sparkpeople. In October 2013 I had my first baby. I am back and hope to lose 30 lbs. I will use the following mantras to help me on this journey:

-- I will take one day at a time!
-- I will weigh in only once a week!
-- I will drink a glass of water when I have a craving to determine if I was just thirsty.
-- I will become a more active person anyway i can
-- I will accept that this is a marathon, not a sprint. I will eventually get to my goals.
-- I will keep myself busy
-- I will drink lots of water, and eat more vegetables
-- I will eat if i'm hungry, and will not eat if i'm not
-- I will become a runner
-- I will envision the number on the scale if i am tempted to eat unhealthily (Courtesy of: BEKKASHAY)

    My favorite person!! So glad you messaged me back. I was hoping you'd sign onto Spark!! Yes, we definitely had our weddings and now it's baby time!! How is your lil man doing? We don't know what we are having yet, just hoping for a healthy baby. But I definitely have a feeling of what the gender is. Congrats on getting under your pre-preg weight!! That's awesome!! You will keep going!! I know you will!! I've lost about 9/10lbs so far and not because of morning sickness, just eating well and can't eat as much as I used to be able to before pregnancy. Hoping I don't gain too much though. I suspect I'll be about 210-215lbs by the end of it too. Are you back on Spark consistently? I have been now for about a week. I'm stoked to be back and reconnect with old faces. emoticon
