I started my journey in May of 2008. I had just given birth to my beautiful son in April, and I weighed an all time high of 207. I had only gained 30 lbs, but I had started out way to heavy, and I was still carrying 10 pregnancy pounds. I also have a daughter, and I was only 25 years old. I knew I had to do something. I could no longer deny that fact that I was FAT.

I joined WW, and started to lose weight immediately. I set a goal of losing 5 pound/month. I lost about 40 pounds doing WW online, and I joined Spark People in March 2009 to hopefully lose that last 20-25 pounds.

I have since lost those last few pounds, and I'm currently learning to maintain and working on becoming more physically fit. I ran my first 6k in April 2010 and I finished in about 42 minutes. This was a huge accomplishment for me, as it used to take me 15 minutes to run a single mile.

My Goals:
I am now basically in maintenance mode. I would like to lose an extra 10 lbs, but I know that last 10 is the hardest. I also want to stop eating late at night, drink more water and live a healthy and active lifestyle.

My Program:
Portion control is my number one hindrance. As far as exercise, I alternate between Turbo Fire, Yoga and Belly Dancing.

Personal Information:
My name is Amani. I'm a 20-something mom of two.
Here are some things that make me happy:
Romantic Comedies
Coffee in the morning
Listening to my DD read
Listening to my son try to say "yellow"
An uninterrupted nap
Reading a good book
How I feel after a good workout
Trying new recipes
Online window shopping

Other Information:
I just finished my MA in English Language and Literature and I currently teach little ones.
