I am a 5'1" mother of 5 daughters, ages 16,15,10,3, & 1 in March of 09. I was an avid SparkPerson back in 2007, but then I got pregnant with my 5th & final daughter. Since my daughters birth, I have been breastfeeding, which takes up a lot of time (still am until she is 1), plus raising my other children, one of which has a physical disability. Have been too busy to do anything for "me"!

I gained all the weight I lost on the SP plan when I got pregnant, & I am stuck at my pre-SP weight now. (170+ range) It is time I got back in the game & took off the pounds for good. This time, no pregnanices to come along since Mia was my last child!

I am here for motivation & inspiration!! I just hope I can stay as focused as I did last time I did SP, & lose the pounds so I can fit my clothes by summer!

    Hey girl! I was just reading your post about your hubby, and pizza. Let me tell you! My man and my son live and breathe pizza, and I finally came up with a solution. I started buying w.w. pitas (low carb and no fat) and low fat mozz. cheese and spread salsa on the pita, and lots of vegetables (tom., and spinach are favorites) and sprinkle just enough cheese to melt over most of it, stick it in the oven until hot. They order pizza and I make mini gormet pizzas for me. Yum! I actually got to a point where I look forward to our pizza nights again! This is very low calorie and fat!

    Good luck, and keep up the great work, It all pays off in the long run.
