Hey there,

I'm Barbara, and I am a mother of an almost 14 month old baby girl. After she was born, I didn't really think that I had time to exercise, so I basically lived my first few months camped in the living room. My husband finally ended that, and I went back to work for a few months. I was losing the weight and had tons of energy. I was 10 lbs less than my pre pregnancy weight! Well, we decided financially it would be best to have me stay home with our daughter, and as it turns out, the weight came back. But this time, I am ready for it, and I am looking into as many ways to integrate my weight loss around my child and not treat them as separate entities. It helps now that she can walk, and we spend a lot of our dry days ( I live in Western Washington, USA so they can be few and far between) at the park. But I am open to some ideas that have worked for other parents!!

Hi! My name is Michelle I have one son and he is almost 5 weeks old. I just joined spark today and am really looking forward to succeeding here and hoping I can give and receive some great support! I need help to stay motivated and it's hard to find time to get a work out in when I spend most of my time taking care of my son.

Hi I'm Samantha and I have one son he is 3 months old and growing so fast. I joined spark a couple of days ago and already am seeing success.. Its been so hot where I live that I haven't been able to walk around my neighborhood. I love the support I have seen on these posts. I just need a kick in the butt to get me where I want to be when i can't go for my walks.

4 kids in 6 years did it to me!! lol really I know I did it to myself. My youngest is 20 months old now..unbelievable that he is that old already! I never even gained that much durning pregnancy...my first son I gained 32 lbs that was the most. I lost all the weight with him right away (I was active duty in the Navy at the time). I than had my next son 17 months later..gained 19 with him. Didn't lose it all. 2 1/2 years later came my next baby...gained 18 with him. After his birth I got post partum depression. Ended up on anti-depressants...which made me gain more weight...ended up being 25 lbs heavier than I did when I gave birth. 2 1/2 years later son #4 came...he was premature. I gained 16 lbs. with him. Now I am trying to lose it all. I've got 55 lbs to go. Between my 3rd and 4th son I lost 50lbs in 5 months from working out a lot and really changing the way I was eating...now it's time to get the rest off! My goal is to be back down to where I was when I got married 11 years ago...125lbs. but I want to be in good of shape as I was when I got done with bootcamp!

I'm Loni, I have a 13 month old boy.

After the birth of my son last year I had to go on medication that makes me HUNGRY. ALL. THE. TIME. So not only did I not lose any baby weight (and there was a lot of baby weight because I was on bed rest for pretty much the second half of my pregnancy), but I'm now UP 5lbs above the weight that I was when I was 9 months pregnant.

People keep commenting that my kids are going to be really close in age, and I'm not even pregnant again, how embarrassing is that? :(

Time to lose the baby weight.

Hi everyone!

I'm a new mom to a 1 month old and I"m looking forward to losing the rest of the baby weight and then finally getting to a healthy weight for me. Also, I would like to get advice on the best way to raise my child to be a very healthy individual.

Hello,
I have a 14 month old son and I gained over 50 lbs during my pregnancy. I lost about 25 lbs in the first few months and then I was stuck with the rest for months.
Walking every day with the stroller helped me loose some weight but once I went back to work I think a few lbs creeped back on. I tried exercising but it just didn't help.
That's when I released that I need to watch what I eat and joined Sparkpeople.
So far so good Im not sure how much I lost in the past few weeks since joining but recording my food and tracking calories rely helps me get into the habit of making the right food choices and planning my meals to avoid hunger attacks that result in eating anything and everything I see.
My goal is to loose another 8 lbs and to keep it off for good!
its not about the weight so much as its about feeling healthy and being fit.

Hi my name is Kristi. I just had my first child 3 weeks ago. Before I got pregnant I had lost 35 pounds and was just 10 pounds away from my goal weight. Unfortunately I gained all the weight back that I lost. Now I am back to needing to lose 35 pounds to reach my goal weight. I rejoined sparkpeople to begin to eat healthy again since I fell off the wagon when I was pregnant. I am trying to find a way to eat healthy while trying to catch up on sleep and feed a baby every 3 hours. I am hoping that starting off slow by the time Shuan is a few months old losing the weight again will not be so hard.

Hi! My name is Andrea and I'm the mother to 3 beautiful children: Alex (9), Lucas (almost 2), and Callie (6 wks). Needless to say, I'm busy. I am a preschool teacher and tomorrow is my first day back to work after maternity leave. I am both very excited and worried at the same time. Learning to juggle 3 kids and a full-time job, along with cooking, cleaning, etc. is seeming impossible! I know I'll work all of the kinks out as we go along. I was lucky enough to drop the baby weight immediately, thanks to my very high-energy toddler! Now, my goal is to take off the extra 20 lbs. I've been carrying around for years. We are one of the many families who live paycheck to paycheck so I am very grateful for such a wonderful site full of great ideas, fantastic tools and super support! I feel very successful just after the first week!

Hi, my name is Virginia! I am here to try and get rid of this baby weight. I have 1 child, his name is Noah, and he is my absolute greatest achievement. He is 6 months old tomorrow, and can't believe how fast time is going by.
As far as weight loss, I haven't been to motivated until now. before I got pregnant I lost 60 pounds and I am looking to lose the 40 that won't go away from pregnancy. I hope i can meet some encouraging buddies on here also...I have heard a good support system makes all the difference.

Hello!
My name is April. I have a 1 month old daughter and a 10 yr old son. I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight after having a 9lb baby via c-section. My son was 10 lbs and I had a c-section with him as well. Although I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight I am not happy with my belly and want to lose more weight and just feel better.

Hi everyone!

My name is Kristen. I'm 23 and the mother of a 13 month old little boy who was born on Christmas Eve just over a year ago! A big surprise for us since he wasn't due until mid-January.

I struggled a lot with my weight throughout life and being diabetic it's important for me to live a healthy lifestyle. I gained 80 lbs during pregnancy and have been struggling for just over a year now to get it off! It's been proving to be quite difficult to do.

I am looking forward to meeting other parents who are going through some of the same things I am!

Cheers!

Hi,
I'm Tina. I have a just under 5 week old baby boy, born Christmas Day. I have always been on the bigger side and it never bothered me too much, I'm happy with how I look but after having my little boy, I want to get a bit healthier and fitter and hopefully shift some of this weight, as it has actually started falling off, after having him. (Breastfeeding does have some benefits after all :b )

Anyway, I am hoping to start getting back into shape once I have had my six week check and wanted to be productive by getting support and into the right frame of mine before I reach my six weeks.

Thats it really, but hopefully I can get somewhere x

I all, my name is Angie and I have two sons 3yo and 7 months old. I work full time and don't seem to have enough time as it is. I would like to get them in the habit of being healthy before they are old enough to start bad habits. I think I should be the example. I will need a lot of support as my my will power is somewhat nonexistant at times!

Hello all! I have recently rejoined SparkPeople. Seems to be common here lately. I had lost almost 25lbs before finding out that I was expecting. My youngest daughter is now 4 months old (my oldest is almost 8). I gained back all the weight that I had lost and more during my pregnancy. Although I have lost some weight it has been very little so am looking forward to using the site and its supoort again.

I just re-started spark today...I was first here about 5 years ago before I got married and gave birth to my two beautiful girls who are 2 1/2 and 8 months. Having a lot of difficulty finding time to exercise between working full-time and being a mommy and wife. Hoping to find some tricks and support.

If something is worth doing, it is worth doing right.

Hello! My name is Danielle and I just rejoined spark people today. I started the first time shortly before I found out I was pregnant with my daughter now (15mos), but it didn't last for long. I am back because I want to feel better and set a good example for my daughter. Look forward to getting to know everyone.

Hi Everyone,
I'm Nicole, age 32, Mommy to my dear baby girl Abby, age 8 months today! I've been married nearly 5 years to the most amazing man, Cory. I've also been [shudder] obese for my entire adult life. I hate that word! My 1st goal is to lose 30 lbs by June, in time for a friends wedding. I currently weigh 273, so 30 lbs is definitely a 1st goal, not my end-goal. I have another friend getting married in Nov, so once I get that 1st goal under my belt, I'll set my 2nd in time for her wedding. Good luck to you all in achieving your weight loss goals!

Hi everyone! I am new to sparkpeople. I have 2 boys-3 yrs and 4 months. I work full-time. I have atleast 35 lbs to lose. I don't have energy and time to exercise. But, I am going to try to make some time. I am hoping to get some advice on the best way to lose these pounds. Also, are there any low-fat Indian recipes on this site?

Hi everyone! My name is Lauren. Hy hubby just joined the Army and will be leaving for basic in February, which will leave me in charge of our rambunctious 14 month old. She is so strong sometimes I feel like she is stronger than me and that scares me. I need to know that while her daddy is away I can take the best care of her! So the hubby and I joined a gym (like he needed it...lol) and I joined SparkPeople! I am hoping to get advice on how to best use my time at the gym and also get motivation and support from gals in a similar situation!

Hi! My name is Wilma, and I am the proud mother of an almost 5 month old boy named David.

I have a question for anyone who knows about women's health.

Two quesitions actually --

After I was pregnant and David was born in April, I got my period back shortly but just for one month. Does it take a while for a woman's period to go back to normal? I had also been taking birth control (Depo Provera) which I know can take away your period (it did for me when I took it before), but after I didn't get the shot on schedule, my period came back for one month and then it was gone. Could I be pregnant again even if three pregnancy tests told me I'm not? Can excessive weight gain interfere with a woman's period or could my hormones and cycle be going through some changes? I have an appointment on October 5th with my women's health doctor, but I wanted to get some input anyway.

Also, I've noticed bumpiness around my breast area, and around the areola is normal to me because of milk veins, but anywhere else is concerning, and there's one but it's starting to go away. Should I mention it to my women's health doctor or should I make an earlier appointment with someone else?

Volunteering is the rent you pay for your space on earth!

Hello, I have two sons. The first is 18 years and the second is 8 months. Yes, a long time between! I lost 40+ lbs before getting pregnant with my second son. I believe that is a reason that I got pregnant. We didn't think we could have any more children. Woo Hoo! Surprise! Blessed we are. I need to lose weight but my main concern is to get healthy. Weight will follow suite. I am breastfeeding, and have read that losing to much to fast is not good for milk supply. One of my goals is to run a 5K in 2010. I recently walked a 5K with baby in a front carrier.

C25K Running Through the Holidays Challenge
W 1: Run 1(X), Run 2(X), Run 3(-)
W 2: Run 1(X), Run 2(X ), Run 3(X)
W 3: Run 1(X), Run 2(X), Run 3(X)
W 4: Run 1(X), Run 2(), Run 3()
W 5: Run 1(), Run 2(), Run 3()
W 6: Run 1(), Run 2(), Run 3()

Welcome JollKN!

You are not alone! It is great you have a active lil boy because it helps as great excercise! My biggest fear is I know dieting and such starts wearing you down and I hope I dont get short tempered with my daughter with all the stress and such... But for me it is going to be 1 day at a time! We can all do this!

Goals Set for 2012:

By 5/10 - Reach 220 (I was 1.1 pound off!)
Reward: Didnt follow diet for mother's day!

By 7/2 - Reach 205
Reward: San Diego Trip

By 9/13 - Reach 190
Have a nice romantic dinner with Hubby

By 12/5 - Reach 175
Not sure what I would like to reward myself with here.. Maybe a new outfit for my birthday!

End of Year I would like to be down to 170

Hello my name is Kayla and I am 20 years old. I have a 21 month old son, so I guess I won't be part of this much longer =(... His name is Cameron Ethan Maverick Jolley. I call him Prince Cameron. We love to go swimming, and we love to play outside with sidewalk chalk. He is the most fun to be around, and is one of my inspiration/motivations to lose weight. I would just like some emotional support and to be able to know that I am not the only obese mother out there who wants to make things right with her body to live longer for her child. Nice meeting everyone! I need to lose 130 pounds!

-Kayla

Hello, I have a 1 year old daughter as of july 2! I have always been overweight but more recent years I keep gaining. When I was pregnant i lost weight throughout my pregnancy not much but overall in the end only gained 10-15 Ibs. and once i had my baby i lost that plus addition 20 within 6 weeks.. Once i returned to work however i have no gained all of that back and some.. so it is time to get it in gear and once and for all get down to a healthier weight I need to be for my family!
I am starting off with a 50 pound weight loss goal! So hopefully I can do this.

Hey there! My name is Cassy. I am 22 years old. I have two children, both girls, ages almost 6 and 10 months! I would love to get into shape. I was doing great and losing weight before my last child, then, after I had her, gained it all back, plus some! I would like to lose a total of 70 pounds by next year. Maybe there is a mommy out there who would like to join me in my quest for accountability?

Hi There! I'm from CT. I just had my first child 3 weeks ago. My goal is to get used to being a new mom :) (great so far) and to get back into marathon shape. I am typically a very clean eater and have had great results. I'm working hard to get back to that strict eating plan. I feel so great when i eat right!

I look forward to meeting all of you!

i am Cat. i am 37 and I have 4 kids. Before i got pregnant this last time I broke my foot. I had to stay off of it for months which meant weight gain. I gained probably 10lbs, I lost all my baby weight but this broken foot weight doesn't want to go away! My oldest are 10 yo twins and a 5 yo and a 10 week old. I feel like I have given up everything I like...sugar, carbs and calories!!! I am basically working with 1200 calories and this last 10lbs loves me!! I know I will never see the 120lb girl I was when I got out of the military but I don't think 140lbs is too much to ask for!!! emoticon

Hi I'm Sandy. I am 24 and I have one five and a half month old son Kaleb. I am a stay at home mom and attending school online. About six months before I got pregnant I was getting in a really good habit of eating good and exercising. When I got pregnant I felt sick and tired almost the whole time and the laziness stuck. My biggest problem is portion control. I've been a member of this site fro about four days and it seems like something I can stick with. I just really want to set a good example for my son and have more energy.

my name is Jenna. I am the mother of 2 daughters, 9 months- Jaeda and 7 years- Chloe. I am at an all time high of 209 lbs. This is even more then when I was pregnant. I gained about 102 lbs with my first child that put me at 202 and gained 90 lbs that put me at 200 lbs with my second. I was on bed rest for 3 months before having my youngest and ate anything that didnt make me sick. And I can not seem to get back into the good habits I had before. I am excited to be able to get help and support

Making your smaller goals will help you accomplish the BIG goal you have for yourself.

Hello! Im new here! Im mummy to a little boy aged 22months.

Hi Everyone!! I'm Daina. I am the mother to a beautiful 6 month old daughter - Olivia Rose and a rambunctious 3.5 year old - Tyler. I am probably a rare person in that I actually managed to lose weight during my pregnancy - I think because I became so obsessed (in both pregnancies) with eating as healthy as possible to make sure my babies were OK. With Tyler, I lost a whopping 30 lbs after pregnancy (literally 30 lbs from the date I found out I was pregnant at 5 weeks and 2 days after I left the hospital) and another 10 with Olivia. Unfortunately, in between, I started slacking and gained about 15 lbs. So, I'm at a net loss of 35 lbs. I want to keep the momentum going, and not slack off like I did after Tyler, which is why I'm here. I'd like to lose 50 more lbs to get me to the weight I was when I started dating my husband. Even then, I still have weight to lose, but that's the biggest hurdle, to me. Anyway, I look forward to chatting with you all!! Best of luck to everyone with their goals!

Hi! My name is Kate and I have two beautiful girls, one 3 and a half and one who is 15 months. I lost a bunch of weight to get healthy before my first pregnancy. Unfortunately, I gained weight during pregnancy and then didn't lose it in between the two pregnancies. I'm at the heaviest I've ever been now and super busy to boot. I work almost full time and am trying to find more hours in the day to exercise again! I'm excited about hearing others' stories.

Hello! I'm Julie. I am very excited to be a part of this group! My daughter is 2 (so very very 2) and my son is 2 months. I'm still learning how to juggle constantly, but loving it all the same. My goal is to lose the gob of weight that will get me back to my first pre-pregnancy weight... and I want to get motivated and, hopefully, make a few new friends!

Hi all. My name is Amanda, I'm 21 years old, and I live in Pennsylvania. I gave birth to my beautiful little girl, Audrey, on February 15th (we missed Valentines Day but had a Presidents Day baby instead)!
I was very active on Spark People before I had gotten pregnant and lost nearly 40 pounds. Well, when I found out I got pregnant I decided not to go to the gym anymore and eat whatever I felt like! So now I'm trying to start all over. I have 34 pounds to go until I'm happy and back to normal.

Good luck to all of you!

Hi! My name is Katie, I'm 28 and I just had my first child 10 weeks ago. I was overweight when I got pregnant and now I am the heaviest I have ever been. I have Crohn's disease and a newborn so I'm having a hard time losing weight. I lost 34 lbs since delivery and I'm just starting to walk with my husband and the baby every night. I'm hoping to get back into a healthy weight range before I get ready for baby #2!!

Hi everyone! I'm Katy - mom to a 13 month old little girl. I'm really lucky to have not gained much weight with my pregnancy, though this is probably due to the fact that I had gestational diabetes and had to carefully monitor my food intake. So while I have gotten rid of all the weight I gained while pregnant, I still have a ways to go to get to a healthy weight. Like all of you guys I'm doing this so I can be the best parent I can be for my child and I look forward to sharing this journey with you!

HI my name is Ana and a mommy to two boys ages 2 and 8 months. I am also work full time at home and outside of home plus am a full time mom. After the 1st baby I was almost to my goal wt when I found out I was preg again so this time around it has been hard to lose the wt and working the night shift doesn't help and also on my days off I work on my home business so I find myself always grabbing anything I can find to eat so I am doing this for me and my kids so I can keep up with them as they are starting to tire me out LOL.

Hi all,

My name is Heather. I joined spark people 2 days ago, with encouragement from my mom(who also has weight-loss goals),and I'm excited to be here.

I have two awesome boys-3 and a half and 7 weeks.

I have roughly 5 weeks left of FMLA leave, and I'd like to return to work having lost at least 10 pounds from the 140 that I'm currently at.

I also hope to make some motivating and encouraging friends while I'm here =)

HI I'm Heather. I have a 3 month old daughter Adelaide, a 2 year old son Jack, a 3 year old daugther Brynn and and 5 year old daughter Pyper. I'm busy and tired. LOL.
I've either been trying to get pregnant, pregnant and or nursing for all of my 30's. After every child I would try and get into shape but it never was very successful because I knew another pregnancy was just up the road for me so what was really the point. I won't be having any more children and so it's time to focus on my health and get into shape and be healthy for my kids.
I'm glad I found this place and this team.

I joined Spark to try to lose this stubborn 30 pounds that won't leave me for love or money! This decision is not only about how I look, but also about how I feel and my general health.

Looking forward to losing weight with you all! Good luck!

Hi! My name is Sonni Peerman. I'm a 23 year old mother of two. My oldest is Jace he is 4 and Emma is 18 months. I have just recently started the local "Pound Plunge" and really trying to be active. I would like to lose close to 60lbs. I was a 16/18 and in good shape before my son was born and would like to get close to that again. This is my first time on Spark, I figured I could use all the help I could get! :) Can't wait to meet you all and get good ideas!

Hello!
I'm Stacey and I am almost 30 years old...birthday next month! We have one son, Sawyer, who is 10 1/2 months...also celebrating his 1st birthday next month :)
I need to make some changes, not only for myself, but to improve our family's health. I do most of the shopping & cooking, so if I can get myself on track, my husband will also join me (I hope). When I keep track of what I'm eating, I know I can succeed as I have in the past. I'm ready to stop making excuses and make healthy living a priority.

Hello Everyone, my name is Jewel. I'm 32 year old working mom with 3 children. I have 6 year old twin girls and a 16 month old baby boy. While after the girls were born I was able to work hard and get my pregnancy weight off pretty quickly, I haven't been as lucky this time around. Its hard to find 5 minutes for myself, let alone 30 minutes to workout. However, I am determined! I want to be a healthy mom who is fun and active with her kids. This is a life-style change I need to make for myself as well as for my family.

Hello all. I'm Sandra, from upstate NY, and I'm new to this group, but this is my third (and hopefully final) Spark attempt. I'm a 30 yr old single mom to a beautiful 7 month old girl. Finding the time to do ANYTHING is tricky these days, but I'm really committed to making this work. I really want to lose the weight that I've been carrying around for year, both to feel better about myself and to be able to keep up with my munchkin when she starts walking! I hope to get to know some of you all!

Hi, I am Liz. I live in Vancouver Washington. I have a 3 1/2 year old and an 18 month old. I had just lost the baby weight from the first when I found out I was having the second. I am now 15 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight and would like to look more like when I got married. My real goal is to be healthy and look good in the clothes I have!

Hello all, my name is Diana. My son Timothy was born in August of this year. Luckily i only put on 9 kilos during the pregnancy and i was able to take it all off within 6 weeks, but i was very overweight before then and still want to lose about 30 kg. Trying to fit workouts in around a baby's schedule is pretty hard, but i am committed!

Hello, my name is Tristan, and I have a son named Kaden who just turned 7 months today. I will be married for 2yrs in Dec. to my best friend and love of my life. I have been on this program for awhile now, but once I started school things just kinda got hectic and I stopped working out and eating right. I get tons of support from here, and hope to get tons again!

Hello, I'm new here, but it seems like a great and helpful site. My twins are almost 3 months old and I really wish my clothes fit. I realize that recovering from a twin pregnancy is harder as twin pregnancies are really rough on the body, and the fact that I had a c-section doesn't help. So, realizing that, I'm want to take things slowly and gently, but I'd like to start taking healthy steps towards fitting into my old jeans.

Hi there-
I'm Sarah, 31-year-old mom of a beautiful 17-month-old girl. I work part-time (I'm not a very good stay at home mom...I'm terrible at cleaning). For me, working full-time was actually easier, because I had less guilt about what I "should" be doing when at home. I am loving the extra time with my daughter, though. Can't put a price on that.
Anyways....I've become newly-dedicated to sparkpeople. I'm tracking my food and exercise. Goal is to get back to pre-baby weight. I will get there!!!
Looking for buddies in the same boat!

Hi everyone - my name is Rachel and I have a wonderful 11-month old son. I also have three stepkids - 16, 11, and 10. I started gaining weight after always being thin when I got a desk job. My husband is also a big guy and I want us to have a healthy family. Having Liam was a wonderful experience and I know we want more children together - but I want to be in better shape the second time around! I am really enjoying this site and am looking forward to getting to know y'all.

Hi everyone,

My name is Karen and I am the mother of a 21 month old. I joined Sparkpeople today as I am trying to lose about 25 pounds.

I gained 50 pounds when I got pregnant-and so far I have lost 40. I need an extra boost now to lose these last few pounds-and the 15 more that I have been trying to lose for years!

Hi! My name is Kris. I have a nine year old daughter, and just gave birth to my second daughter on August 6. I am trying to get back into the exercise routine, but it is challenging with a 3 week old baby. I'm sure with time I'll figure it out ;) I am fortunate to not have to worry about returning to work for a whole year. That should give me plenty of time to get myself back into shape.

Hi everyone. I am a mother of 3 children under 3.
I have a 33 month-old, a 18 month-old, and a 2 month-old. I am currently 30+ lbs from the weight I was before I got pregnant the first time. After wearing maternity clothes for 3 1/2 years, I am tired of them, but none of my other clothes fit. I refuse to buy clothes in a size that I shouldn't be... and so it begins. I currently work full-time and have a husband who travels for a week to several weeks at a time. The trick was to figure out when I could get a work-out in, but thanks to my husband who bought me a treadmill, I think I have it worked out (not that losing 30+ is going to be easy, but not much is with 3 kids.) So, good luck to everyone and let me know if I can help!

Hey everyone. My name is Carrie and I am the mom of 2 beautiful girls. One is 3 and the other 6 months. I am 10 lbs from my weight before I was pregnant the last time and 20 from where I want to be. I work full time and run around with the girls the rest of the time. I decided now is the time to start being more conscious of what I eat and do, so I can start looking good in my clothes.
