The day I weighed in at a Weight Watchers meeting on July 1, 2008, was a new low number in the 4 years I had been married--25 pounds lost. That morning, I also found out I was pregnant with my son. My pregnancy added 50 lbs, and the day I went to the hospital I was 200.2--a number I never wanted to see. Now that my son is running and climbing, I'm determined to lose the last few pounds to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight--and then lose some more after that.

Member Since: 1/16/2010

My Goals:
Goal #1 get to my pre-pregnancy weight of 156. REACHED 8/24/10!!!

Goal #2: 150 lbs by my 28th birthday Sept 24. REACHED 149.2 on 9/23/10!!!

Goal #3: 145 lbs by October 13. REACHED 144.8 on 11/5/10 (better late than never, right?!?!)

Ultimately, I would like to see 140s again. My husband's never known me that little (it would be 40 lbs lighter than when we got married!).

My Program:
I walk almost every day. Most of the time I don't want to, but my son loves being in a stroller and getting outside. I have a good loop I do that ends up being about 2 miles. It's all I have time for once I get home and try to make dinner and relax, but it's way better than nothing!

Personal Information:
Resident of Cowlitz County, WA. I moved from SoCal in 2003, was thought crazy by everyone I know, and yet I love living in Washington State. It's gotta be one of the prettiest states in the US.

Other Information:
I got whistled at the other day while I was pushing my son in his stroller on a walk. If that doesn't make you appreciate all the hard work you've been doing, nothing will! :-)

    It was just a dusting, but I really enjoyed watching it fall. I'm in Portland, so we don't really get much snow, not as often or as much as I would like anyway!

    I wanted to swing by, even though it's taken me a few days, to say thank you for your kind and wonderful comments on my blog and pictures from my HM. I really do appreciate it. The sweet potato soup was kind of blah... I wound up throwing a whole bunch of salsa and cumin in it to pep it up. After that, it was pretty good. (I love sweet potato with cumin and salsa. It's kind of my "when in doubt" plan for sweet potatoes!)

    I also wanted to encourage you. You can do this. It took me 3 long years to lose the weight after my little man. It just takes time and consistency. Committing to do one healthy thing for yourself each and every day really will add up! You are going to do great!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog My Secret Love Affair With Food. I do not know what the final calorie count was I did not log anything. It was one of those days where I wanted to eat and enjoy every bite and not care. Have a great day! emoticon
