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 -
165 lbs -
160 lbs -
155 lbs -
150 lbs -

    Hey there. I noticed you were wondering about your daily calorie targets. I also find it quite tough to stay below 1500 calories a day, but the nutritional tracker helps hugely to keep me within the boundaries.

    If the amount of food you are eating now is less than you were before you started SP, then keep it going for a while until you are used to it. After a few weeks you can always try reducing it further until you are within your range if you are not satisfied with your progress.

    If you need to chat, I'm here! Cheers :)
