Off, but I'm back on!

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

I was pretty down starting 2008. I had big plans to be down to 140lbs by X-mas and was not even close. I realize now my goals were unrealistic after just having had a baby in Sept 07 and gaining too much weight and topping the scales at 200lbs the day I gave birth. I lost 40lbs in two weeks and then was at a stand still. Everything I owe for the changes in the way I eat, the way I percieve fitness can be accreditted to sparkpeople. A free program to help people find themselves, the person they always knew that was there, just hiding under the pounds.

Today I am 128lbs. I feel fantastic. I want more, lol. I want to be sparked again. I have taken off the weight, kept it off and now I want to work on continuing to maintain and improving my muscle tone and cardiovascular fitness as well. I have a 2 year old. He'll keep growing (God willing) and I want to run right along with him. Here we go...again.

    Thank you so much Geri. You have an adorable family as well. I am very happy and proud, but mostly about the person I've become by being a mom, and less about the weight (although that definitely a plus). I live everyday for my family and I too stay at home with my little guy (home day care) and still can't get enough of him. emoticon

    You are a gorgeous person. And what an adorable child! You must be so happy and proud. Good luck on the exercising. You DO need a lot of energy to chase a child.
