Big News!!! Big News!!! Big News!!! Big News!!!

I had my baby girl -- Maggie Marie -- on February 27th, 2008 :) She weighed in at a mere 5 pounds, 6.6 ounces and was 18 inches long. She is perfectly healthy and a wonderful, much adored addition to our family. Hubby, Big Sister and I are SO in love with her!

I have somewhere between 9 and 14 pounds of baby weight to lose (my weight fluctuates like crazy!) and am getting back into a walking routine slowly but surely. I can't wait to get these pounds off and work on the 50 or so more that I need to shed in order to make my goal of losing 250 pounds!
****************************************

When I started this journey, I needed to lose 250 pounds -- Currently I've lost 172.4!! I still have a long road ahead, but I'm on my way!

You can see my nutritional goals and some of my favorite types of exercises below. I don't follow any specific diet, I just try to make healthy choices most of the time, and stay within my calorie range.

If you'd like to see before and after pictures (and I use the term "after" loosely, because my weight loss journey continues), there are a few in my photo album, OR you can go to my website at
http://hometown.aol.com/hiscyberchick/lo
singit.html (make sure you copy both lines of the addy. I'm sure the formatting on this page will break it in two) and click on "Befor & After". There's also a general photo album there with some misc. pics.

One of the best weight loss tools I've used is the support of online forums and discussion groups - and I'm always looking for new buddies! eMail me, I'd love to hear your success story, your struggles, or about your personal weight loss plan!
