I AM ON A SERIOUS POST-PREGO WEIGHT-LOSS MISSION!! Ok, that was my introduction when I first started with Sparkpeople but since then ( End of Aug. 2010 ) I have lost over 20 lbs putting me below pre - prego weight :)...Mission accomplished!! I have always been active, but can't say I was always leading a healthy lifestyle! You could say I over-indulged in food and wine...I am pleased to say that I have changed all that with clean eating and only drinking occasionally. These changes have had a great impact on my life, as I find that I have much more energy to focus on my passions in life - Motherhood, Pilates and Bodybuilding. Sparkpeople thank-you!!!

    Thanks so much for your comment on my latest blog. It was hard to write -- there were a lot of confusing feelings and I was having trouble sorting them out. I'm glad it was thought-provoking to people and hopefully even helpful.

    You are doing such an amazing job with your weight loss and I think when you head back to work, you will definitely have made health and fitness a habit. It might be hard to find your groove at first, but you will find it -- I'm sure of that.

    I'm also glad you will be tracking your progress through pics as well. I'm glad we'll journey through this together!

    In case I don't talk to you before Christmas, have a wonderful first Christmas with your little one!

    So nice to meet a fellow Canadian here on SP. I'm so jealous that you live in Kamloops -- it's so nice & hot there in the summer. And I'm sure the winters are much nicer than here, too!

    Also, thanks so much for your supportive comments on my blogs. It's true -- we are our own worst critics. Sometimes I go through other people's progress pics and I think, "Wow, these people look so good already!" Another Spark friend pointed out that there are probably a few people who say that about my photos (not many though, I'm sure!)

    Anyway, I try not to be too negative about my body image. I guess I just want my old body back but it's hard after two kids. We'll see what happens in the next few months. This is, at least, the most motivated I've been in a long time.

    Ooops, gotta run. Have a super day!
