Another 'fresh start'... hopefully the last one, this time!

It's October 2011. I tried a 'fresh start' back in January, but fell off the wagon. And gained MORE weight! So here I go again, hoping that I can stick with it this time.

My daughter is almost 4. My son is 17 months old. I reached my lowest weight as a mom just before getting pregnant with Ethan, of 157 lbs. I was happy, I was getting fit! But somehow since I gave birth to my son, I just couldn't make the time to take care of myself, and I'm back up at my highest weight ever (non-pregnant anyway)

I got married in April, and while I think I looked pretty good... well we all wish we looked better, right? I'm hoping to be a much healthier, more fit person by our 1st anniversary. I'm aiming to be at my goal weight by my 28th birthday in May 2012. My daughter starts kindergarten next fall and I want to be proud of myself and show her a good role model.

I know I can do it this time! I *KNOW* IT!

March 2012 edit - I slightly fell off the wagon. More so, I was trying to be fit but wasn't watching what I was eating. I was maintaining my weight but not losing. I've made some changes to my diet in the last week and I'm hoping to make them a more permanent change. I've re-evaluated my goals and changed my goal 'deadline' to December 31st.

Weight Goals:
Start Weight 185 lbs (September 26, 2011)
180 lbs - November 6, 2011
175 lbs - March 20, 2012
170 lbs -

    You and I both fell off the wagon and are back again! You made it make before I did and at least have the reason of creating a beautiful child. :) I just got lazy but I'm back to finish what I started. Good luck in your journey!

    thank-you for sharing what is going on with you. But you know I will miss you. I just started with spark people, but I understand when things happen, you need to set priorities. Hope your husband is doing well, and try to focus on yourself because everything will fall into place, and maybe you'll be back with us once again. Best of Luck with your endeavours. emoticon
