I'm baaaaaaccckk! I got off track only a few months after starting to lose weight back in 2010.. I spent the next year gaining the 30lbs I lost back. In that time I became pregnant (after trying for 20 months!) and we now have another beautiful daughter, born May 22, 2012. I'm ready to get back to business and finally lose this weight!

Original (from 05/10):

My name is Brenon and I'm 26 years old. I live in upstate, NY with my husband, our beautiful daughter and our 2 dogs. I'm eager to lose weight for many reasons, but one really important one is that my hubby and I want another baby and I would love to lose some weight before getting pregnant. Our daughter just turned 3 on 08/08/11.

I had an OB appt on May 19th, 2010 where my doctor told me I would probably have a difficult time conceiving due to my weight (which he thinks is causing my irregular cycles..). For 6 days it was weighing on me (no pun intended) that we may not be able to have another child unless I got back down to AT LEAST my pre-pregnancy weight (still at least 80lbs overweight). When I had that appt we had already been trying since January 2010. May 25th was the day I couldn't take it anymore. Something had to change. I decided right then and there that I was finally ready to make the necessary changes to my life. So far, so good!

My Program:
Started again 9/11/12 just tracking my food and easing back into this lifestyle. Once again trying to use the elliptical 3x/week and tracking everything I eat!

Started 05/25/10 by cutting out all soda, fast food and pretty much all other 'junk' food. I do NOT deprive myself because I believe if I do that then I will eventually crash and burn and go crazy. If I want a treat, I TRACK IT! I track ALL my food, every single day.

I eat approx 1500 cal/day.

I try to use my elliptical/stationary at least 3x/wk, 30 minutes at a time.

Making better choices!

Personal Information:
I'm from Binghamton, NY. I'm a stay-at-home mom to two beautiful girls (4 year old and 4 month old)

Other Information:
I love looking at others' sparkpages for motivation and one thing I always find myself wondering is 'how tall is this person?' so I can get that sort of visual motivation (200lbs on someone who is 5'2 looks a LOT different than on someone who is 5'8!). SO, just for the record, I'm 5'2. :)
